  1. My book!

    Thanks stud muffin - you're right about the little red graph. There's a little blue one too as I've enrolled it in the kindle lending library so I get to see how many pages have been read and get a share of a royalties pot. Someone's actively reading it today because the page numbers read are rising - it's very exciting. I just used the amazon cover creator, hence the rubbish cover, but I'm struggling to think how I'd get a decent cover on it (for free!). I'll have to get working on a sequel!
  2. My book!

    Hi Albert, There's a couple of different price points that give different royalty values. I chose a cheap price point that comes with 30% royalties but if you choose a higher one you can get 70%. I reckoned that I'd struggle to sell any at the higher price point and I just wanted to get the book out there. The thing I didn't know is that you have to accumulate 100 worth of royalties in a currency before they pay it out, so I doubt I'll be seeing any cash any time soon. It's really gratifying though whenever I see that someone has bought one (they do a little chart where you can see your sales volumes - my sales axis goes no higher than 8 at the mo!), even if I know most of the purchases are by friends.
  3. My book!

    Sorry if sounded a bit mean. It wasn't meant to. I like to support local talent when I can and would have bought your book at a higher price. I am not much of a reader, but I've bought quite a few locally written books. I didn't read any meanness into it at all. It was a genuine thanks for purchasing and it genuinely is a bargain if it's free.
  4. How Many Accounts Do You Have?

    Ha ha, this thread is where I 'outed' myself.
  5. My book!

    Even more of a bargain then. Thanks.

  7. sound cafe?

    Oo, I wonder if the Cullen skink is still on the menu?

    I say, are the people who buy your tale revealed to you as an Amazon seller? I'd buy one, I enjoyed the look inside preview, but I wouldn't want to compromise my MF anonymity. I've no idea who's bought it unles they (the purchaser) tell me. All I can see is sales numbers by currency.
  9. My book!

    Thanks guzzi. And thanks for the well wishes. I really don't expect anything to come out of this, it was more of an itch that needed to be scratched, having had it sitting on my laptop for a decade or so.

    Thanks Stu and anyone else who's bought it. Today is already one of my top selling days, with 3 purchased.

    Thanks!
  12. My book!

    Hi China, I actually wrote it back in 2006 over the course of a couple of months. I tried a couple of agents a few years ago but got disheartened after a couple of rejections. Only recently realised you can self publish via Amazon these days so thought 'why not?' It was dead easy to get it on there, uploaded from a word document. Took less than an hour I'd say. Worth it if you've got anything laying about that you've considered sending out to the world.
  13. My book!

    I use a kindle app on my iPhone (other phones / tablets are available). Just have to log in to your Amazon account. Thanks for the interest
  14. My book!

    I know I haven't been on here for aaaaaaaages and it's a bit mercenary for me to pop up again only to plug my book, but I wrote a book! It's about a normal person who develops super powers and she's a woman and all! I've self published it on Amazon, hence the crap cover. I'm plugging it 'cos I don't get any royalties until the total hits £100 and I've only got about 3 quid so far. It's here: https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B06XSR3Q4W/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1491683067&sr=8-1&keywords=josie+kelly What are you waiting for? It's only a quid!
