Happy Friday! Hope you have had a great week and had the opportunity to read lots of books! It looks like the Magical Musings authors have a lot of books that either recently released or will be released soon. They are writing them quicker than I can read them! Always a good problem to have as a reader. 🙂
Speaking of new releases, do you pre-order your books? It is my understanding that people used to pre-order so they did not have to worry about a print book running out of stock. Now that the world is going digital, is there a point to pre-ordering? This question has come up a few times lately.
First, I have a Nook and I also read using the Kindle App. Recently there was a book I saw come up for pre-order that I knew I wanted to read but couldn’t on release day, so I pre-ordered it, as I didn’t want to forget to grab it and support that author. On release day not only did the book show up on my Kindle app, but it also showed up on my Nook. Seems I pre-ordered it twice. Oops. Since then, I have not pre-ordered any books.
Now, indie authors have the option to offer their books for pre-order on Amazon, whereas that was not the case before. This is very tempting since a lot of my fave authors publish indie, too.
Should I pre-order or wait until release day? Do you pre-order? What are the benefits to pre-ordering? Authors, tell us why you want readers to pre-order your book. Does it help you hit any lists?
