5 Reasons Why You Should Publish An Ebook Box Set
by Tiffany Shand
What are e-book box sets? E-book box sets are a file made up of three or more books or stories by one or more authors.
Why you should consider publishing a box set:
1. Great opportunity
Box sets are a great opportunity for authors to publish their books together in one set because to increase their sales by selling a completed series for a discounted price. They are also a great way of collaborating with other authors by promoting each other’s work. Plus you’re inviting new readers to read other books that you may have written.
2. Increased visibility
Publishing your books together in one place is a great way of getting more people to notice your books by publishing them in different categories or on different e-book platforms such as or iBooks, rather than just publishing on Amazon.
Box sets are considered much more valuable than single titles because readers are getting more for their money by buying your books for a discounted price.
4. Easier to market
Box sets are much easier to market than single titles because you don’t have to put all of your efforts into each book, you can do all of your marketing and promoting on one product. It’s also easier to get into places such as Bookbub.
5. It’s another stream of income
As an indie author, it’s important to have multiple streams of income when it comes to your writing business. Bundling your books together as an e-book boxer is another valuable stream of income as box sets often sell better than single titles.
The Alpha’s Daughter
After being kidnapped as a child, Christy Daine was sent away from her shifter clan to live among humans. For over a decade she has lived in fear of the people who tried to kill her. Living with her bodyguard, Ronan, the two embark on a secret relationship that could get them both killed.
When her father, the alpha of all the clans demands she return home to marry a man he’s chosen for her, Christy will finally have to face her past and her true nature. Danger lurks around every corner and even Ronan might not be the man she thought he was.
As the alpha’s daughter, can she really choose between the man she loves and the man she is supposed to be with? And who can she really trust?
After watching her family be slaughtered by the man chosen to be the next alpha, Christy has to turn to the only people left on the island for help. The outsiders are considered outcasts by the shifter clans and were blamed for her mother’s death years earlier.
With Ronan imprisoned, no allies and nowhere else to turn, Christy must learn to trust the people she once viewed as enemies and discover who is really friend or foe. To do that Christy must learn to accept who and what she and discover secrets long buried among the clans if she’s to save Ronan and their future.
Only she can become the true alpha and bring the clans together before it’s too late.
The Alpha’s Curse
Christy should be happy now she’s finally with the man she loves, but enemies still cover the island sanctuary that the shifter clans call home. After discovering her brother may still be alive, Christy must go back to the man responsible for killing her family and into the heart of danger.
Now the alpha, she must find a way to stop the people who seeks to destroy all shifters, bring together the clans and the outsiders and stop the centuries old Alpha’s Curse before it can destroy every shifter in existence.
Welcome to Day 26 of the AtoZChallenge and the letter Z. Every day in April (except Sundays) I will be making a post about shapeshifters of all kinds. Check back to see my choices and, from time to time some flash fiction too.
Z is for
She is a sorceress and the evil stepmother of Prince Kassim of Charak and wishes her own son Rafi to take the thrown instead of Kassim. To do this she transforms Kassim into a baboon. Luckily for him Sinbad is docked so he can ask for permission to marry Kassim's sister, Princess Farah, and so he comes to the rescue.
It is not just Prince Kassim's shape Zenobia can change, but her own as well. She uses a potion which allows her to shift into any form she wishes. At one point she changes into a bird to get to their ship and then makes herself small, but is captured. She is later left with a bird foot after she uses the bird form a second time, but most of her potion is spilled.
The film is one of Ray Harryhausen's and has many of his wonderful special effects.
A Zygon can use what they call a body-print of an individual to mimic voice and appearance. They create this print by placing the captive in a special receptical, keeping the person alive but unconscious. In this version of the technology, a new print was required every two hours.
Over time this ability became more advanced, leading to not necessarily needing the specemin in the special receptical and then also being able to maintain the shape of a deceased person, with the proviso of not needing anymore information from the individual.
This makes them a formidable enemy for the Doctor and his friends.
Werewolf of the Day
Richard Zeeman (Anita Blake Vampire Hunter)
He was engaged to Anita for a while, but broke it off after she slept with Jean-Claude. He is the third member of their triumvirate, which gives them all a great deal of power.
Anita calls him a "boy scout", in that he is polite and kind, but his wolf has a thing for violence and pain, which keeps him from accepting his other nature fully. He is a very powerful werewolf, able to control members of his pack and to protect them.
He is a junior high school teacher and, as such, keeps his status as a werewolf a secret. He did not choose to become one, but was turned by a bad batch of anti-lycanthrope vaccine. He is honey coloured, heading towards red as a wolf.
Richard is basically a bit of a bad ass when it comes to werewolf business and likes to think the best of people in all other situations.
- So would you rather be up against Zenobia or a Zygon?
- If you were a werewolf and found that your wolf form had urges completely at odds with your normal self, how do you think you would deal with it?
