Do You KU?

Originally posted on S.G. Rogers, Author:

PhotoFunia-30586c_oThat’s Amazon’s Kindle Unlimited program, of course. For about $10 a month, you have an all-you-can-read option, choosing to borrow from 700,000 titles and thousands of audiobooks.

Even though there’s a 30-day free trial, I still haven’t done it. The Scotswoman in me is reluctant to stand the expense, although I can see the benefit. If you read more than three or four books a month, the membership would certainly pay for itself. On the other hand, not all authors participate in the program, so a reader’s choices are curtailed. Do you KU? If so, how do you like your membership so far?

As an author, I like the idea, and I’ve enrolled all my private label titles in the program. Many bestselling authors don’t believe they are compensated appropriately for their work, however, and I can see their point. Certainly, if an author can command $9.99 for one of…

Whoops, I Did It Again • DUKE OF A GILDED AGE is on #SALE

Originally posted on S.G. Rogers, Author:

DOGAcoveridea5Through Wednesday, January 7th, 2015, Duke of a Gilded Age is marked down to $0.99. This full-length Victorian romance is set in New York and England, as Brooklyn-born Wesley Parker travels across the Atlantic to claim a dukedom he’s inherited from an uncle he never met.

Blurb: When American-born Wesley Parker inherits a dukedom in 1890, he must learn to be an aristocrat. Assigned to the task is his attorney’s daughter, prim Belle Oakhurst. As they travel to England together on a luxurious ocean liner, their tempestuous relationship encounters more than rough seas. Although Wesley is increasingly attracted to Belle, she’s already engaged. While Belle begins to regret her hasty promise to marry, she is bound by honor and duty to keep her pledge. Furthermore, a thoughtless fabrication on her part threatens to expose her as a liar. Neither Wesley nor Belle can foresee that their voyage across the Atlantic…

Do You Like My Shorts?

dreamstimefree_4125048Short literature, that is.

As a reader, I used to turn my nose up at novella-length or shorter works. I mean, once you’ve got your teeth into a good book, you want it to last for days. More recently, however, I’ve begun to select shorter works so I can read them entirely before bedtime. I settle in around nine o’clock at night and read until I’m done. In addition, shorter works allow me to sample a particular author’s style, so I can decide if I like his or her voice or not. I also believe shorter works should be priced accordingly, perhaps at $0.99. That price point seems fair to me, somehow.

As an author, why do I write shorts? I have numerous shorts for sale, and I’m glad. For one thing, I can never tell for sure what book will resonate with the public. I’ve invested months (sometimes the…
