Independent Authors – get 42.5% from Kindle Store

December 13th, 2009

This makes zero sense to me. Apparently you can get more than the 35% cut that Independent Authors get from the Kindle Store.

By going through SmashWords.

SmashWords say on their blog that they will pay Authors and Publishers 42.5% of the Kindle Store list price –

Smashwords will pay authors and publishers 42.5 percent of the digital list price (set by the author) for book sales through Amazon.

The rate is higher than what many ebook authors can receive on their own if they publish direct with Amazon.

The ebook is Chugging Along…

October 22nd, 2009

Today I met with a talented artist who will design my ebook cover in exchange for some writing on one of his projects.  I’m meeting with the webmaster next week to reformat the book’s website. I  also have a singer/songwriter  composing a tune to fit the book’s theme that I might place on the website!

Geeze, Simon's book is great!

Feels good to know that by December, my ebook will be out there.

So keep that in mind when you buy a Kindle or other ebook reader for the holidays…!
