I had thought it would be easier. But after I received the Kindle version of my book, Stones of Judgment, ready for Amazon uploading I broke stride trying to figure out what kind of royalty deal I should go for. The 70/30 split on offer for a bunch of countries looked good until it seemed that I would have to price the book higher than I had wanted. And then there was the issue of exclusivity with a shot at the Amazon lending pot … about $1million to share between many thousand writers. But then the book would have to only be available on Amazon.
So, because I couldn’t decide what to do, I decided to start slow. I picked the 35/65 deal and priced the book at 99 cents and pushed the publish button. Amazon said it would take 12 hours to go live. That should be sometime while I am sleeping. I believe many more people will sleep through the event unless I get my act together and spread the word.
First stop, blogging. Expect more where this came from.
