Why Do Dramas Do That?: The Book Launch!

Guess what, we wrote a book!

And it only took us a gazillion years! We finally got Part 1 written up (thanks monkeys) and ready for launch, and we promise we won’t take a gazillion more years to roll out Parts 2 and 3. Or maybe we promise to try. Because yunno… there are DRAMAS to watch.

In case you missed the first announcements, our ebook series is called Why Do Dramas Do That? and it’s about… uh… why dramas do that. We cover a whole host of our favorite (and okay, not-so-favorite) drama tropes, like oppas and birth secrets and live shoot madness, and dramaland’s regular company of players, like the Candy and her noble idiot prince.

The book is available via Amazon and Smashwords (links below), and between those two distributors you should be able to find a format compatible to read on your Kindle, Nook, Sony Reader, iPhone, iPad, PC, Macbook, or Android device.

 

TO BUY:

Amazon

Smashwords

(In addition to Amazon.com in the States, you’ll be able to find Why Do Dramas Do That? Part 1 internationally on Amazon.co.uk, Amazon.de, Amazon.es, Amazon.it, Amazon.co.jp, Amazon.in, Amazon.ca, Amazon.com.br, and Amazon.com.mx. Outside of those countries, Smashwords is what you’ll want.)

Congrats javabeans and girlfriday.

I love your writing and it has influence my writing as well. I have also just written a book about my experience of living in shanghai. Since I am not american it is difficult for me to put in on smashwords. it is now on available on kobo.

my website livinginshanghaiDotnet explains everything about the book.

I am sure your book will sell well!!

Would us fans be almost as willing to purchase it at $2.99 instead of $1.99?

$1.99 = $0.70 royalties (35%)
$2.99 = $2.09 royalties (70%)

That's $1.39 more to javabeans/girlfriday for each ebook sold. Amazon ebook royalties is 70% from $2.99 and up. But only 35% from $2.98 downward.

To me as a fan of this dramabeans blog, $1 extra is so worth it because one of my favorite bloggers is making $1.39 more.

Please javabeans/girlfriday, change the price.

Agreed. Don't short change yourselves. I'd be more than happy to dish out 3 bucks for each part.

That said, I'm off to read Part 1...lol

Monkeys are high-maintenance. They need to get themselves a Suspicious Recapper, leaving them free to write the Best K-drama Ever as they travel the world visiting all their adoring fans.

WoW!!!!!! And a big round of applause for these two ladies! Congratulations and big kudos! I won't be surprised if I hear you're writing a new script for a Korean noona-flowerboy-ghostchasing-workplace romance drama.
You both are single-handedly doing your thing!
I will place my order pronto!!!!
I'm also glad I can finally put a face to your names having not had the privilege to meet you in person as I live in London, UK. Watched you on YouTube at KCON. You were brilliant of course and beautiful to boot!
Love y'all all the way from o'er the pond.

"OMG, JB and GF are so beautiful!!! "

That was exactly my first impression when I met them. Lovely Ladies, warm hearts, funny, kind, smart, and gorgeous in a dress. Not surprising that they've got a following of loyal fans.

Congratulations:) I will surely buy the book. Because of you gals, I find K-drama more enjoyable. I have been visiting your blog everyday (a few times) since 2011 and add your web onto my phone's home screen. Simply love your work.

Congrats! I'll be buying through Smashwords!

Btw is there a way of knowing what happened at the Seattle meetup? Like whether it was over-crowded, if there were any awkward moments, what was discussed, what food there was...whether anyone got drunk or a fire broke out etc.

Couldn't find any traces of the meetup on the DB facebook page or the latest open threads. Or will it be a closed thing for the people who met up only?

Congrats gals! I love your work and am visiting your site the first thing everyday. So envious how you girls can do such wonderful things, but love you more for helping my understanding of k-drama.
Definitely want to buy your book, but the first thing is to ask hubby to order it from amazon.co.uk as he keeps the account. He is grinning about my watching k-drama more than taking care of him, hic hic hic

I have my copy! I will read it next week as reward to myself for closing out a successful run of "An Ideal Husband". Just curl up in some hidey-hole for a couple of days and refuse to talk to anyone.

wow. congratulations. you guys must be so proud. and excited.

i can't buy it since my nationality does not allow me to make purchases online with my credit card. :( such are the benefits of being born in a remote, exotic, beautiful, albeit third worldly country. but i do hope i get to read this SOMETIME eventually. the cover looks so pretty!

i assume you must be celebrating. and there must be soju aplenty. cheers JV and GF!
