EDIT: I have reconsidered the pricing and gone through the calculations. The book will show up for sale now at $12.99 US, which is much more reasonable and probably will actually sell a few. haha. Please, if you purchase either the digital or paperback copy, write a short, honest review. It will help immensely! Thank you so much for following me!
After debating with myself for weeks on this, I decided to go ahead and reformat the book for a paper back version.
Amazon give’s authors a 60/40 cut. Author’s get 60%.
Sounds wonderful until you actually realize that out of the author’s cut of the “profits” from the book they take out printing costs.
This is one reason I never intended on doing hard copies of anything.
Setting a book at minimal cost is great, but not going to make an author money, and only gives money to Amazon.
As an example, the printing costs for this book are 6 dollars (and some odd cents). Setting the cost of the book at 10.50 would net the author .03 cents per copy.
Setting it to give a better “profit” for the author entails setting the cost significantly higher than either a reader or this author wants. But, for the time being, we set the cost of the book to provide a $5 bill for each copy sold.
The price is 19.95 US – here’s the link:
I don’t expect anyone to spend 20 bucks on my books, and honestly, I want to keep the cost below 10 dollars, but until such time as folks start actually buying them in droves (hahaha, sorry I know my work is good, but I am cynical, everyone wants “Free”) I’m going to highly recommend you jump on the Kindle Book links and get the digital copy (at $4.99). Yeah, it’s more profitable for me, and cheaper for the readers.
But, the paperback is available if you want it!
Here’s the digital link:
So, if you want to read a good book, pick up “Aftermath’s Children” on digital today. Don’t worry if you do not have a Kindle, you can use the Cloud reader from Amazon, or you can download the Kindle App for your iPhone or Android, or your tablet!
