Unpublishing All My Fiction

For an author, the best thing to do is write and publish as many books as possible. The more books you have available, the more likely you'll be discovered, and the more potential readers you'll gain.

For me, that has been the purpose of my writing. Last year in June, I had this crazy idea to also publish a book that contained all my published works in one volume called All My Fiction. Because it is an eBook, I would update it whenever I wrote another piece under the B.C. Young name.

At first, the book became my fastest seller. And why not? For a flat rate, whoever purchased it could get everything I wrote. I still think it is a great idea, especially because it benefits the reader many times over.

Here I sit in May 2012, and I realize I can't do it anymore. Not because I'm losing money or anything like that. Rather, the eBook submission process across multiple channels creates a challenge for updating the book and distributing to those who have purchased. It also has become more difficult to add to the book because of my focus writing under Desmond Shepherd and reading/writing in general.

Couple all this with the fact that my other eBooks sell better than All My Fiction, and I've decided to forego future updates of the book and I am unpublishing it. You might say I should keep it up for sale, but since the premise of the book is that it will be continually updated, I can't offer the book for sale knowing full well there are no further updates coming.

For those of you who purchased the book, I thank you for trying the experiment with me. If you contact me with proof of purchase of All My Fiction, I will gladly give you a free gift to show my appreciation.

So, I'm unpublishing All My Fiction, but of course, you can still get all my fiction in individual eBook format and paperback for my books available in print.
