Important Announcement

For the last four years, my novels have been available to purchase through various different online retailers, including Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Kobo, Apple Books and Google Play, to name a few.

Over the past year, I have deliberated, agonised and basically driven myself to distraction over whether or not to withdraw my books from some, or all, of these stores.

The reason my decision has taken so long is ultimately due to the respect I have for my readers and the loyalty they have shown me. However, I must do what is in the best interests of my author brand.

Therefore, as of 19 April 2019, I will be requesting my novels be removed from sale at the following sites:

Online Retailers:

  • Barnes & Noble/Nook
  • Kobo/Walmart
  • Apple Books
  • Google Play
  • Tolino

Library Services:

  • Overdrive
  • Baker & Taylor
  • Bibliotheca

Subscription Services:

  • Scribd
  • 24 Symbols
  • Playster

I appreciate this announcement may come as sad news to some, and you may feel that my decision in this regard is unfair, but trust me, this hasn’t been an easy conclusion to reach. This not only affects myself as an author, it also affects you, the reader.

If you have already purchased my novels from any of the above sites, but have yet to read them, I believe you will still have access to them (if you have any queries, please contact the customer services department for your retailer). If you are half way through the series, you have until 19 April to purchase the remaining novels (if you so wish) on your preferred platform.

In the future, I may expand distribution once again through the above websites, but for now, they will only be available on Amazon.

If you would like to contact me, to either rant and rave or just give me your POV, please leave a comment below or drop me an email.

Finally, for my readers on the sites listed above, I appreciate the dedication and support you have given me over the last four years.

Best wishes,

Elle X

Elle was born and raised in Yorkshire, England, where she still resides. After many years of putting aside her creative ideas, in 2012, she was inspired to write again. The surprising result was her debut, contemporary romance novel, Fractured. The first of the series, books two and three, Tormented and Liberated, followed in close succession, along with the accompanying novella, Aftermath. A self-confessed daydreamer, she loves to create strong, sexy and diverse characters, cocooned in opulent yet realistic settings that draw the reader in with every twist and turn until the very last page. A voracious reader for as long as she can remember, she is never without her beloved Kindle. When she is not absorbed in the newest release or a trusted classic, she can often be found huddled over her laptop, tapping away new ideas and plots for forthcoming works. Her latest novel, Faithless, the fourth instalment of The Fractured Series, was released on 2 July 2018 and is available from all major ebook retailers. She is currently working on the fifth book in the series.
