The Metaspace Chronicles: boxed sets

boxed set As I work with marketing my books such as The Metaspace Chronicles, I’ve been thinking about the problem with series.  You know, the fact that someone is less likely to buy a sequel if they haven’t read the first novel in the series.

The modern solution to this problem is to bundle the series as a boxed set. This is a little misleading when we care talking about ebooks, however, because the buyer receives no physical object i.e. no “boxed set’ of anything.

However, provided the readers understand that the thumbnail is a visual metaphor and not a product photograph, the boxed set image can be a convenient and attractive way to present a multi-volume series bundle. Though the reader receives no actual box, they do get all of the ebooks it contains. — MRK
