Interlude: The Great Eejit Give-Away

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, you should be fine for a free e-book.

And I’ve been climbing the leaderboard on extremely obscure deep-nested e-book categories!

Space Fleet whaaa?

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:

Space OperaSpace Opera. Finally, something that makes sense!

In other good news, I learned today that my publisher is moving from their outdated and expensive royalty check system (and its painful accompanying royalty thresholds where you need to earn a certain amount before they send you anything), to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.

Mmm ... cash.Can’t touch this (re: Hammertime).

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.

About Hatboy

I’m not often driven to introspection or reflection, but the question does come up sometimes. The big question. So big, there’s just no containing it within the puny boundaries of a single set of punctuationary bookends. Who are these mysterious and unsung heroes of obscurity and shadow? What is their origin story? Do they have a prequel trilogy? What are their secret identities? What are their public identities, for that matter? What are their powers? Their abilities? Their haunted pasts and troubled futures? Their modus operandi? Where do they live anyway, and when? What do they do for a living? Do they really have these fantastical adventures, or is it a dazzlingly intellectual and overwrought metaphor? Or is it perhaps a smug and post-modern sort of metaphor? Is it a plain stupid metaphor, hedged around with thick wads of plausible deniability, a soap bubble of illusory plot dependent upon readers who don’t dare question it for fear of looking foolish? A flight of fancy, having dozed off in front of the television during an episode of something suitably spaceship-oriented? Do they have a quest, a handler, a mission statement, a department-level development objective in five stages? I am Hatboy.
