Pricing came back for my book.

I had to agree on a pricing for Part 2 of my book. I took out the calculator, and churned some numbers. The pricing is up from the publisher for this book, approximately 30 cents from the last. Although, in all fairness, this book is 30 pages longer than the first. As we all know, everything goes up in price with time.

It is difficult, for someone like myself to adjust the pricing of a book. I am not a skilled marketer. What I had done, was to go look on Amazon at some books that are around the same page count. Many of them are in the 15, 16, dollar range. Few of them are cheaper than that. Mine will be below the 15 dollar mark. It will be close to Part 1's sale price scheme.

I would like a lower price on my E book for Part 1, but at the moment, it cannot be done. The 3.98 price that is offered was the best, that I personally could do, due to the cuts you have to give to each entity (publisher, retailer, and me). This was dropped from 8.99, the original pricing. Myself, I need a certain amount also, to keep myself in the writing game. I was not given yet, the information on the Part 2 Kindle price. I hope it is around the same cost price from the publisher as the first.

Well, that was the last decision to be made on the books progress into the homes of the world. It should not be too long now.. 2 weeks and a few days, still counting... Have a good afternoon, till next time.

My Dog has ate a Ferrero Rocher.

I had only went into a store to buy a few Ferrero Rocher packages of chocolates... Then, I went into the next store, not realizing that I left the small, 3 chocolates per package, delicious Rochers in my middle vehicle organizer. On the way back, I did not even notice.

I had got out of my vehicle, and only when I went to search for something on that side, it all came together. The package was torn, with only one individually wrapped Ferro Rocher out of its packaging. She had selected one, and even tore the golden foil paper from the once existing Rocher Chocolate.

I looked over at my Dog. This was a little too much for me to handle. I yelled "Pushkin! You ate one of my Ferrero Rocher!"  Is she the only dog in the world that probably ate a Ferrero Rocher.

Good point in standing, she actually thought the process through. She did not destroy the three chocolates in the package, all in one bite. She used her incisors, exactly as a surgeon would, to take apart the package from t…

The Self Publishing 12 days of Christmas for 95 % of us...

What does Christmas mean for the majority of us self published authors. I think of the 12 days of self publishing... Scrooge approved.

1. The usual "Gesh, I didn't know you wrote a book! Where did you find time for that" from festive long lost friends or relatives.

2. When your manly friends tell you "Oh, I did'nt have time to read your books, but my wife read it and she sure likes it... But she likes just about anything she reads"

3. Where can I get a copy of that. I don't got a credit card so I can't order it online... Do you got any free copies...

4. The wife tells you "Why are you spending so much time on that thing. You got wood to split!"

5. Your son tells you "You should have put more pictures in that novel, dad. Maybe then I would have read it"

6. Your local library tells you "Oh, what a cute little book... We will put it way up there on the top shelf where it will keep the dust from falling on the traditional books"
