The Trylle series well be now $8.99 on ebook in Jan, as I know Amanda has signed up with a publisher, that's why some of her books are now getting more expensive. I still wished I had bought the last two books of the Trylle series when they were on sale for 2.99
How rude... If someone offered me a real deal gig doing what I love... Id take it and hope that my fans arent so lame in understanding that a girls gotta pay the bills... Amanda, your an awesome writer... on your own or with a publisher. Now please give me the 5th book hehe. :)
Selling out? HAH What a writer wants is for her books to be read..and now they are available to more people. If selling out is being good at what you do, then yup, she's on it. If you don't want to pay more for her books, don't. Plain and simple. And I agree with the 'rude' comment...I would've used worse words probably ;)
I like ebooks for the accessibility and environmentally friendliness aspect... So switching to something that promotes further waste of finite resources is unappealing. Society is transitioning to paperless... I truly believe that an ebook should have been offered and even if the cost. Was higher.
I have purchased every one of her books that I can read on my kindle. I only purchase books in hardcover version, I hate paperbacks with a passion. Until I can purchase Wisdom for my Kindle I will not be purchasing any others. I won't start a new series until I finish this one and there is nothing wrong with having her books on BOTH venues, this is the only ONE of her books that is not available on Kindle. There are a lot of great authors out there getting their books published on Kindle that one can get for real cheap. And a lot of hardbacks as well as e-books written by really great older authors. Enough reading to get by until she can figure out what she wants to do.
God its hugging me that I cant continue the story I understand why she isn't writeing the fifth book but I can stand waiting for a book that amazon sold on kindel before than took it off wtf is that about obviously a lot of people love the books why wouldent they want to make money on a book people are willing to pay for it. I don't trust the smashwords site. I just want to now what the problem is.
My wife got me into this series and I hooked after the end of the first book. When I finally got to "Wisdom" I was sorely disappointed that there wasn't a 5-9 dollar Kindle edition...in it's place was a paper back...uh, hello?! That's why I have a Kindle, plus the fact that these books started out in digital form, so the ever dropping number of paper back readers had no idea about the series, and maybe never will. I didn't mind so much any grammatical errors or the spell checks few miss corrections of words or the fact the there was an excessive amount of 'lip chewing' :P because the books were a reasonable price and I loved the story line. The kindle editions made you a serious amount of change $$$ and now your paying a publisher a decent amount of the profit I'm sure. I'm just glad there are other ways to get the Kindle version of 'Wisdom'. I will certainly NOT be purchasing any more of your books, no matter the price.
I to am very disappointed that Wisdom is not available in the kindle format on amazom.com. Yes, I am aware that I can get it at smashwords but I don't feel like I should have to set up another account just for this one book. Surely any percentage of money you might be "saving" from having the other site sell your book would be made up with more book sales due to amazon having a much larger customer base where more people go for their books. While I enjoyed reading the other books in this series, I will NOT be purchasing Wisdom or any future book you might write. You have lost me as a customer and as a fan and I will be sure to let my friends know whos books not to buy.
Download the PDF version and email to your kindle. Use the kindle.com email address attached to your kindle (look at the manage your kindle section - manage kindle device) but modify the address this way to avoid the charge: firstname.lastname@example.org. Hope this helps.
So I bought your Tyrlle (sp?) Series and got hooked on your writting. I have since began buying your other stories, I just finished book 3 of My Blood Approves and was disappointed to not see a readable version on Kindle. I don't care for audio books since I like to focus on the written word. I really hope that Amazon will offer it again for reading, if not then I guess I'll be buying a paper copy, though I like to keep all my"books" together. I really do LOVE your stories, just upset that I can't get this book right now. Thanks and keep it up!
