Why Buy Direct?

Why should you shop direct?

It’s the BEST way to support your favorite authorsWhen we put our books up on the large retailers, they end up on pages with a bunch of other books in various genres/heat levels. Here, you can be sure that the books you are downloading fit the genre and heat level you are looking for. 

You get to KEEP the books you buy. Did you know that Amazon can take the books you have paid for–whenever they want? The books (and audiobooks!) you buy on this site, and will stay inside of your BookFunnel library. They will not remove them, and you can access them anytime, anywhere.

It’s as EASY as 1-2-3.

  • Buy your book from my website
  • Check your inbox for an email from BookFunnel. You can also login to BookFunnel to check what books you have.
  • Decide whether you want your book sent to your favorite reading app, OR read directly from the BookFunnel app (which, in my opinion, is just as amazing as reading via any other app–if not better).

You can download the BookFunnel app for free here: https://bookfunnel.com/help/app.

I can release my books earlier on my site! By listing them directly on the website, I can move the release dates forward without issue! Trying to move a pre-order date on the other platforms can be a NIGHTMARE. But on my site, if the editing comes through seamlessly, the proofers finish early, and the files are prepped weeks in advance, then I can release it straight to you BEFORE anyone else gets it. 

SEAMLESS book pages with the information YOU are looking for! I have little to no control over what my book page looks like on the other platforms. But having it here, I can offer a full chapter look inside, as well as recommendations that fit exactly what you are looking for.

Yes, my books are available on the other major platforms. I want to make sure that EVERYONE has access to my Christian romance novels, so they will remain on Amazon, Nook, Kobo, Google, and iBooks. I am super appreciative of the reach I have because of those major platforms…I just want to be able to offer additional benefits to anyone purchasing directly from my store, including bundle deals, and discounts I can’t offer anywhere else.

I sincerely hope you will give purchasing direct a try! I am so grateful for your support! Without YOU I couldn’t do what I love!
