Should You Buy Direct From an Author?

Top 10 Reasons to Buy My Speculative Fiction Novels Directly from My Website

As a speculative fiction author, I’m grateful for the readers who support my work. When you buy my books directly from my website, you’re not just getting a great story; you’re also helping me to continue writing and publishing more books, and through my membership in the Association Of Independent Authors, Speculative Fiction Writers of America, and similar groups you’re supporting other indie authors as well.

Here are the top 10 reasons to buy my speculative fiction novels directly from my website:

  1. You support an independent author. When you buy a book directly from me, you’re putting money into the pockets of a small business owner. This helps me to continue writing and publishing books, and it also supports the local economy.
  2. You get a better deal. I typically earn more money when I sell my books directly to readers. This means that you can often get a better price on a book when you buy it directly from me.
  3. You have more options. When you buy a book directly from me, you may have the option to choose from different formats, such as ebook, kindle, Apple, Nook, Kobo, GPlay. You may also be able to get signed copies or other special editions.
  4. You get to support a genre you love. Speculative fiction is a diverse genre that includes everything from science fiction and fantasy to horror and dystopia. When you buy my books, you’re helping to support the speculative fiction genre and ensure that there are more books like mine available for readers to enjoy.
  5. You get to help me build my career. The more books I sell, the more successful I am likely to be. Buying books directly from me helps me to build my career and reach a wider audience.
  6. You get to connect with me. I love interacting with my readers. When you buy a book directly from me, you’re more likely to hear from me and have the opportunity to connect with me through my website, social media, or email.
  7. You get to stop helping the mega-wealthy Jeff Bezos and help small business owners instead. When you buy a book directly from me, you are putting money into the pockets of a small business owner, not Jeff Bezos. This is important because it helps to support independent authors and small businesses, which are the backbone of a strong economy.
  8. You get to support diversity in literature. Indie authors come from all walks of life, and they write about a wide range of topics. When you buy books directly from indie authors, you’re supporting diversity in literature and helping to ensure that all voices are heard.
  9. You get to support the future of publishing. The traditional publishing industry is facing many challenges, including radical censorship from diverse political and feminist groups. Indie authors are helping to keep publishing alive. Purchasing books directly from indie authors helps sustain publishing and offers readers a variety of choices.
  10. You feel good about it. There is something special about buying a book directly from the author. It is a personal transaction that supports a small business owner and helps to make the world a little bit better.
