INDIE ... the urban short form for INDEPENDENT
It's time to be what the label on the tin says; independent means independent; unaffiliated authors who market their own product directly to their own customers ...
From 17th August 2014, and progressively over the course of the next few months, you will find a change occurring within the World as we all know it ... the books of Alp Mortal, Chambers Mars and Carter Seagrove will no longer be available from Amazon; instead we are opening our own Book Boutique -
The Carter Seagrove Book Boutique
And the boutique will operate in a very special and perhaps a unique way; download a book and then make a contribution to the authors and editors for their hard work if you enjoyed the story ... totally unfettered and free access to our work with no restrictions of any kind.
Independence is the freedom to exercise personal choice ... you decide how much you wish or can afford to contribute for the books that you want to read ... and, if you choose to contribute anything for the book/s which you plan to download then please bear in mind the following:
: the eBooks made available for download here are not available in digital format anywhere else (a paperback may exist in some cases, available from Amazon)
: the eBooks which you are planning to download are created by the authors themselves; some eBooks will lack certain features which you may expect/have grown use to if you use other eBook retailers
: this eBook will not be automatically delivered to your eBook reader; it will appear as a download and you will need to copy it to your eBook reader yourself. In some cases you may need to convert the file to a format better suited to your particular eBook reader
: different file formats will be offered over time depending on how things go ... tell us what you what and we'll seek to provide it
: there is no limit to the number of times that you can download a particular eBook
: if you choose to contribute something in exchange for the eBook then this is not a charitable donation but a recognition of the work which the authors and editors have invested in the product
: you may choose to download an eBook for free at the time and contribute later, once you have read the story, and we are absolutely happy for you to do it that way ... in fact, happier
: if you plan to make a contribution then please consider sharing the planned contribution between the author/s and your favourite cause and even go as far as registering your pledge to that cause on the forum; make giving your living.
One of the bravest but most liberating decisions we feel that we have made in a very long time ... we're taking control of the entire process and in so doing, attempting to live up to the expectations and obligations of a true Indie author/self-publisher.
