Going Wide Wednesday: Exclusivity vs Going Wide #WriterWednesday #WW #KDPSelect #Wide #Exclusive #IARTG

Author April L Wood

eggs-1082150_960_720

After months of debating exclusivity versus going wide, I’ve chosen to have my books listed with all of the major ebook vendors. To some this may seem an obvious choice — why would someone want to put all their eggs in one basket? Let’s discuss the benefits of both because there definitely are good reasons to remain exclusive.


Pros of Exclusivity

Exclusivity with one retailer like Amazon’s Kindle Unlimited has its benefits. For one, if you are starting out, it’s less overwhelming to have your book listed with one ebook vendor.

Of course, this wasn’t an ordinary crush on a cute coworker … Continue reading AWRW Book Review: Trashy Romance Novel by Jacqueline E Smith @JackieSmith114 #IARTG #BookReview #Romance #TrashyRomanceNovel #AWellReadWoman

Stuck in a reading slump? Check out my latest (recommended) reads!

What to ReadWednesday

I’ve immersed myself in fiction the past month on A Well Read Woman Blog — escaping into fantasy, horror, fiction shorts, and romance — trying to shake the dreaded writer’s block. (I know fantastic timing with NaNoWriMo.)

The good thing about this is I’ve discovered great new reads and I’m happy to share the bookish love. The following are stories I recommend:

Pocketful of Bones, by Author Julie Frayn

pocketfulofbonesWhen I saw the cover for Pocketful of Bones floating around social media, I was immediately intrigued by not only the eye-catching design, but the title too. Being familiar with Julie Frayn’s writing style — her almost fantasy-like world building, dark humor, and edge-of-your-seat psychological suspense — I knew I would enjoy her latest, and once again, I was not disappointed!

The opening pages threw me into sensory overload, in the…
