Amazon Italy just informed me that – were I interested – the first story in the Asteria series, Italian edition, has been selected for the Prime Reading programme.
Prime Reading is basically a promotional tool that allows Amazon Prime subscriber to download my ebook for free – while Amazon pays me a fixed amount covering forfeit-fashion all the “sales” of the promotional period.
An excellent offer, that not only signals that my Asteria stories are a small success in Italy (enough to attract Amazon’s attention), but promises to help my series to reach a new audience.
Which is fine, because more readers for the first episode in the series also means – hopefully – more readers for the follow-up episodes.
So I was quite happy to accept the invitation.
And the fourth episode in the series, in English, is about to be released – bringing the first “season” of Asteria to a close, and possibly launching also a spin-off series.
And then… ah, who knows.
New stories, paperbound collections, gadgets, signing sessions, a movie… dreaming is free, as Blondie used to sing.
Alas, right now there is no Prime Reading programme for the English edition of the **Asteria** stories. But maybe, in the future.
So, things look fine for Asteria.
Never mind the fact that Amazon had to send me three times the link to sign the agreement, because the first two were broken.
I’m sure everything will be fine.
