Day 20. 71 pages, 30,439 words.
Things seem to be going well, about halfway into my Eejit give-away now if you still want to plug it around. And yes, I have confirmed that it works at least in the US and Finland – I think as long as you’re using amazon.com, you should be fine for a free e-book.
And I’ve been climbing the leaderboard on extremely obscure deep-nested e-book categories!
I guess there’s a military and a space fleet in my story … although if you can find a lower price than $0.00, I suggest you pick up ONE TRILLION COPIES.
That was yesterday, and today I found that my rating had climbed further:
In other good news, I learned today that my publisher is moving from their outdated and expensive royalty check system (and its painful accompanying royalty thresholds where you need to earn a certain amount before they send you anything), to a direct deposit system like Amazon already has. So although my paperbacks don’t sell spectacularly, at least now the cash will start trickling into my account instead of just dangling tantalisingly out of my grasp.
I know at first glance this looks like the US dollar is really, really weak against the euro, but these are actually three separate revenue streams. I sell more to the US than I do to the UK or the rest of Europe.
Well, anyway, that’s it from me for now. Back to work.
