About 2 years ago, about this time of the year, I published a science fiction novel, Urtaru, on the Amazon Kindle that I had written. It’s been available for a while and I’ve sold some copies (and even had to file a schedule C…boy did I felt made when I received the 1099 in the mail).
In the meantime I embarked on trying to self-publish it so that it would be available in print also. In the process, I added a foreword to the book to explain how writing the story came about. The side effect of releasing it as a physical book is that I’ve republished the kindle edition with the new foreword. In the process I have also lowered the price of the kindle edition to the lowest price I can on my agreement with Amazon (yes they have a lower limit). So my book is available on:
My Own Bookstore on CreateSpace for $14.99
The Kindle Store (both US and in the UK!) $2.99
You can read more about me and my book on my book website
or take a look at the brief profile Amazon provides for me as an author
In a couple of weeks, createspace will move my printed book onto amazon for me so you can buy it there also
BTW the print copy makes a perfect christmas gift (or at least one that will elicit all kinds of strange and humorous looks which you should record on a flip and post to YouTube). I don’t think that when the recipient reads the book they’ll have the same looks, as I’m pretty sure they’ll be entertained for 326 pages.
And authors with whom I exchange follows out there on twitter and facebook, I’d appreciate a retweet or a via on this one. Thanks!
Now I have to go back to my SAP homework before class tonight.
