Re: Kindle - good idea for self-publishing?
Kindle question I thought I'd post here rather than start a new thread.
On Amazon, I sometimes see advance announcement of paperbacks, that you can also pre-order sometimes at a slightly discounted price.
With Kindle self-publishing the discussions here on SFF often mention that you need a presence, so having up multiple books helps with that and also with encouraging a reader to start your series.
So is it possible to do a pre-announcement with a self-published Kindle book on Amazon - or indeed any eBook on any bookseller?
Just thinking of the scenario where you say have book one polished and ready to release; book 2 is finished but needs another polish/is off with the editor and so on. So you could put up book 1 and announce that book 2 release date is in say three months.
Can it be done?
Is it a good idea if it can be done?
