The Big ‘Pay What You Want Sale’ on the Joe Coffin books.

To celebrate the opening of my brand new shop where you can buy all things Ken Preston related, I’m having a Pay What You Want sale on the Joe Coffin ebooks.

Everything starts at £1, but you can pay more if you want to support an impoverished author. There is a suggested price too, but if you want to pay a £1 then go ahead and the book is yours.

I have also made some big changes to Joe Coffin The Final Chapter and Joe Coffin Returns. But before I go any further, why don't I let you ask me some questions and I will do my best to answer them.

  1. 1
    Why sell direct? What are the benefits?
    For you the reader, it means better value books, either in a lower price bracket or a book with exclusive extra content.
  2. 2
    That's lovely of you to think of us readers, but what about you?
    For me as the author, it means I get to keep more of the book's cover price and I get paid immediately. Currently Amazon's payouts are set at 60 days after the end of the month in which the sale occurred. And that's a pain.
  3. 3
    Will your books still be available on Amazon?
    Yes they will. And also on Kobo, Apple Books, Google Play, and Barnes & Noble.
  4. 4
    Will your books still be in Kindle Unlimited?
    Unfortunately not. The terms for authors registering their books in Kindle Unlimited mean those books cannot be sold anywhere else. Not on any other store or direct. Also, you the reader will never own them.
  5. 5
    Is there anything else we need to know?
    Yes. This is the first time I've done this and so there might be a few teething problems. If there are, just email me and I will sort them out as soon as I can.
  6. 6
    One more thing. Are you doing this because you hate Amazon?
    No, absolutely not. But I do feel increasingly limited by Amazon's terms and conditions, and I would like to see my books available to more readers, not just those who read on Kindle.
  7. 7
    Wait a minute, you mentioned something about changes in the last two books.
    I did, didn't I? I published Joe Coffin The Final Chapter and Joe Coffin Returns in a two part format, and I've realised that readers generally haven't enjoyed them being published this way. So, I have brought out new editions, with parts one and two both in a single book. So now, instead of Joe Coffin The Final Chapter Part One and Joe Coffin The Final Chapter Part Two, there is simply Joe Coffin The Final Chapter. And the same with Joe Coffin Returns.
    If you have bought Part One of either of these books and are now feeling frustrated that you will have to buy the book again, just drop me a line with a copy of your receipt and I will send you the complete book free of charge.

Visit the shop now to pick up a bargain, but do it soon before the deal ends.
