This is more of an ‘admin’ post, but in response to a recent request for a more ordered list of titles I’ve made some changes to my personal shops (Payhip). The question was a good question. The reader wondered if I could list my titles chronologically. Specifically, was it possible to show what was the newest book, for example.
My response was “I have no idea, but I’ll look into it.”
Well, I’ve looked into it.
Books on Amazon (via a browser) are easy, as you can choose to list the books on my author page by publication and the newest are listed first. Just click on the tab to the right of the list of formats.
My Payhip store is not as easy. I can list and order my books manually, but I have chosen to use “collections” pages instead.
However, I’m trying to make it easier by moving the non-Petersen titles to a whole other store. So the main Payhip store for Christoffer Petersen books will only have Petersen books. You won’t find books that are in Kindle Unlimited there, unless I pull them out of KU.
The other titles, such as Steampunk, Science Fiction, and the Greenland raven stories are now listed in a whole new Payhip store here: Centaurian Books. (Yes, the choice spelling is on purpose!) Moving them here works too as I think most readers here are looking for the Greenland books.
Alternatively, as I publish more and more books on different platforms, this nifty link (which I have to remember to update – put it on the list, Chris!) takes you pretty much everywhere else. But, like I said, I have to update this link.
One might ask why should I have a Payhip store at all? There are three main reasons:
- I get a greater share of the royalties for books bought through Payhip
- I can add more things to the download page, such as extras like wallpaper or maybe photos from Greenland that are related to the story – anything digital, really
- and I can offer discounts and books for free
Amazon is still by far the easiest option for most readers, especially if you are already in the Amazon ecosystem. I have no problem with Amazon, but I do like to have options and Payhip is one of them.
So, this was an admin post – kind of a preemptive spring cleaning.
Lots more to do!
