...until they get a paper cut on their thumb. Yes, not as memorable as Mike Tyson's "punched in the face" quote, but a paper cut is probably more apt for a writer. Less painful too.
I recently bought the Atticus formatting software, which I'll be using to revise the formats in my ebooks and print books in the coming months after I've finished The Game War's first draft.
My ultimate plan is to leverage this to offer both ebook bundles with 4-8 main novels and .5 bonus content novellas. While I'm at it, I intend to offer Repenter: The Hidden Chapters and Brigands: The Favor as a combined paperback. These two bonus stories are too thin to make their own paperback.
Plus I'm also thinking about doing hardback collections through Ingram Spark.
For example, I'd offer both Repenter and the Hidden Chapters in one hardcover collection. Then offer Brigands and the Favor as another hardcover collection. You get the idea.
My thinking on that is that if someone is going to pony up the money to pay for the premium version, they should also get some extra content.
That's the plan.
But what do you think? Does this plan for hardbacks make sense to you as I expand into other formats? Or do you think I should try a different approach?
