November Has Thirty-One Days

Of course it doesn’t. But since announcing that Jean Desjardins is coming out in November, I kind of wish it had.

Be assured, progress is being made, and I do hope by the time I have proofread and edited* it for the thousandth time that it hasn’t turned into a short story. I also hope there aren’t any typos.

For those who haven’t visited my other blog, you should know that I have decided to price it at $.99. I had originally planned on asking $1.99 thinking it would entitle me to the 70% royalty option.  (Come to find out that requires it be priced at $2.99.)  In the future I  may raise the price so as to take advantage of the higher royalty but this is not going to be in the near future, and if I do decide to do  so, I’ll let everyone know way ahead of time.

*As far as I’m concerned the following is the greatest tongue twister ever: Ed had edited it.

Court-Martialed?

If you follow this blog, you may recall I said I was pricing my novel, Jean Desjardins, at $1.99. I did this wrongly assuming it would entitle me to to the 70% rather than the 35% royalty option. I take it my misunderstanding has to do with my inability/unwillingness to follow instructions. It’s a good thing the military turned me down all those years ago. If not, I might have found myself court-martialed.

What I’ve decided therefore is to price it lower at $.99 and perhaps at some point in the future, raise the price so I can take advantage of the 70% royalty option. I’m not planning on doing this any time soon, but if and when I do, I’ll be sure to give everyone fair warning.
