Well here we are!
The novel is written, and in the hands of beta readers. I’m awaiting feedback, but the book should (fingers crossed) be available Sometime in August/early September. The ebook will sell via SmashWords, (DRM free) and Amazon, (Not sure if it’ll be in KDP) for $3.99USD. If the ebook is bought via Amazon, my cut is about $2.39USD per book. If it’s bought on SW, it’s $3.93USD for 85%
The print edition will cost about $13.99USD via CreateSpace. Of that my cut will be $3.73USD. So, for anyone who is looking at the price of the printed book and going “fuwah?” it’s not like I’m gouging here, and you can still buy the ebook and read it online even without an e-reader, though, what with Kindle and iBook apps for Windows/Mac it seems a bit clunky.
I don’t expect many will want a printed copy, but hey it’s there. Author autographed copies will have to be ordered via my website, so that I can take your money, order a printed book to my house, sign it, and ship it to you. So that price will be whatever the CreateSpace is + shipping to where-ever you are.
I’m discovering that it’s really true, writing the book is the easy part, compared to marketing. Doubly so for writers with mental illnesses that keep them mostly housebound, so no book tours or even video chats like Google hang-outs for me! So, I’m reading up on that, but we will see.
