My latest release, Seducing the Billionaire, is a 4-part erotica series which will be fully released by the end of February. The books will not be standalones and should be read in order. Each part will be 8-12K words long and will sell for $0.99/£0.77. Once the series is complete, the books will be bundled into one volume and priced at $2.99/£2.31. So, buying the four books separately will cost readers $0.99/£0.77 more. However, they would have had the chance to meet the characters long before the readers who will eventually buy the bundle. They would have also had the thrill of anticipating each instalment and watching the series develop and unfold. Some readers enjoy that sort of thing and will think it worth the extra cost. The way Amazon’s royalty system works I actually make a little more money if readers buy the bundle, hence the added incentive for them to do so. By the end of the series I hope there are enough reviews posted to enable readers to make a decision either way - confidently buy the bundle, or make a smaller investment at the beginning which in turn will be a bigger cost if they enjoy it and want to read the other books.
I hope that by stating things clearly at the start of this series I will avoid having readers complain about the length of the books or feel cheated by buying the books singly.
