Blame Hugh Howey
I’ve got two parts of my novel How It Ends up and published on Amazon, here and here. Part three will be coming out in the early part of January. You might be wondering why I’m serializing it rather than just releasing it in a single volume. Well, even if you’re not wondering, I’m gonnaContinue reading “Blame Hugh Howey”
Versioning Your Ebooks
While reading a Robert B Parker ebook last year, I noticed this in the front matter: “V3.0_r2”. To my systems eye, this means version 3, release 2. It struck me as a little odd to have a version/release number at first. But then I thought of it like a printing history rather than something moreContinue reading “Versioning Your Ebooks”

Holy Increase Batman!
A brief one this time, following up a little on the previous post about setting prices on Amazon. A few months ago I decided to make my short story free using a promotion. I took it to zero cost. Here’s what happened: In one year, at $0.99, I have sold 18 units. In four days, at $0.00,Continue reading “Holy Increase Batman!”
Why Can’t I Set The Price To $0.00?
I really wanted to set the price of my short story to nothing. I want to give it away. It’s sold a few, but not a ton. And to be honest, $0.99 for 14 pages, while not a ripoff, does seem to be kind of silly. So I went onto Kindle Direct Publishing and attempted toContinue reading “Why Can’t I Set The Price To $0.00?”
I’ve read a bunch of books now on my Kindle. I didn’t know if I’d get used a e-book reader. Apparently I have. I like how I have a huge range of books to choose from, whatever I need to fit whatever my mood may be. And I have it all in a single device.Continue reading “Bad Formatting”
The Girl In The Red Hoodie was (still is, though stay tuned) was my first self-epublished book for Kindle. As with all first attempts at something, it had issues. The story itself was done about two years ago. I hadn’t really proofed it for copy yet, but I had proofed it for content. I made someContinue reading “Two Recommendations”
