This is a site-wide promotion for Smashwords, so as much as I want you all to spend all your money on our titles, actually it’s a real bonanza for readers, if one can discern from a preview what is a good read or is willing to invest time to find out.
Here is the code:
And here is the link:
There are two nuggets in there that have been set to an exceptionally low price – see if you can find them. 🙂 The rest of the books are on a deeply discounted, standardized price of less than a cuppa Joe.
In other news: Systems are changing.
While Smashwords and Amazon are still good sales channels for us, we are currently filing away on getting books actually print-ready.
There should be launches, some time soon.
We have found suitable printers in Ireland and the UK. The quality bowled me over, not being used to it. This is a new game!
We are also working on internal structures and systems. And we have a number of new authors on board.
It is interesting to see how the GDPR law impacts on websites and on sticky advertising (you know, that annoying kind that sticks to you like gum on a shoe). P’kaboo doesn’t do that. Our source code is simple, innocent. Our business systems still rely pretty much on person-to-person. You can shop from our shop (though you’ll still have a bit of a wait at this point), but you can’t have an “Account” with us, with 2000-step verification and the name of your favourite pet. No. We operate with Paypal; when I started with Paypal, it was a convenient way to communicate with the world outside South Africa, but I have come to respect them immensely for the added facilities and security measures they have in place.
So the smoothest, easiest way to interact with us is via our website. If you are in the civilized world, we’ll mail you your books. If you order ebooks, we’ll deliver them by email attachment. You can order a number of our books and ebooks from Amazon, of course, and some ebooks from Smashwords; the numbers are growing. I am looking at more platforms, but by now,
www.pkaboo.net is a pretty nice site.
I am trawling for a nice platform to use for forums for our readers, reviewers and authors to interact, but so far, the Facebook group
The P’kaboo Book Club” is the simplest. We used to hold games in there on Monday nights (Tuesday nights?) in 2015, when things were still awesome.
On that note, go check out the smorgasboard of links I’ve served up for you :). See what you like. See if you can find the hidden nuggets, and report back if you did.
