(Newswire.net -- May 30, 2013) Portland, OR -- The new romance author, who took Amazon Kindle by storm over the 2012 holiday season, is quickly expanding her audience and is making her First Class Novel series available on more digital reading devices. AJ Harmon’s romance novels are now available on; iBook for iPhones and iPads, Google Play for Android devices, and now on Nook Press eBooks from Barnes and Noble.
“We have released the first 3 books in the series on Nook, Google Play and iBook - the others will soon follow.” Harmon explained, “Nook doesn’t make it easy for self-published authors to distribute their romance books in their online bookstore. First Class to New York, First Class to Portland and First Class Justice are now accessible on Barnes & Noble’s Nook e-Reader.”
According to Barnes & Noble’s third quarter report, they‘ve captured 25% of the emerging e-book market. Amazon Kindle claims to still hold onto 70% of the digital content market, leaving iBook and Google Play to fight over the scraps. Harmon’s choice to release her series in all 4 platforms makes her more available to the ever-growing digital romance novel buyer. Romance novel publishing is a 1 billion dollar business and romance readers are the optimal digital consumers.
“What started out as a fun challenge from a friend,” Harmon smiled, “has become my passion, my profession, and a great source of pride. I don’t do anything half-way. When my first book started to get amazing reviews and women from around the world were messaging me about the emotional connection they felt with the characters, I knew I had to go big and stay at home and write. Having my work published on all 4 of the major digital readers is a dream come true, for me and my fans."
“Breaking into the most competitive genre in the eBook market hasn’t been all sunshine and roses; it takes a lot more than just writing a great story. There is cover design, formatting, publishing and marketing that I never even thought about when I accepted the dare from a sarcastic friend,” AJ sighed. “I’ve been blessed with the love and support of my family during this grand experiment, not to mention just a little bit of luck. We launched my first book just before Christmas; little did I know that millions of women would be looking to start their digital library on a new Kindle, tablet, smartphone or iPad they received as a gift over the holidays. I was surprised and honored that they had chosen my book to be included in their new e-book libraries."
“I’m most proud of the women who read my romance novels.” Harmon concluded, “They are amazing people who love and live in a busy world; who just want to claim a few minutes to themselves and read a story with the happy-ending, like the one they’re working so hard to create in their lives and the lives of their loved ones. They are the moms, wives, sister and friends that make the world go round.”
