It’s been about five months since I made an update here, not that I get much traffic on this part of my website – but if you’re reading this then ‘hey. Not that I’m upset about that, I’m coming close to having 100 books (mostly digital) distributed and for a hobby I feel great to see that.
Anyway, on to the update. On Sept. 11-15th I’ll have my second free promotion for an ebook copy of my book. If you’re interested in it then that would be a great chance to check it out. Additionally, my exclusivity agreement with Kindle Unlimited expires Sept. 30th. Beyond that I hope to look into extending the distribution of my book (I think it would be really cool if I could pick up my own book at a Walmart or bookstore – even if it had to be ordered online ahead of time).
Additionally, if you fact check my previous posts I said I’d increase the price from $0.99 to $2.99 in May. The changes is mostly due to royalties: Epic thinks they have it bad at 30% fees, well on Amazon if you charge $0.99 on your book they’ll take a $0.69 cut with the 70% fee becoming a 30% fee at $2.99. When I exit Kindle Unlimited I’ll probably raise the price. I’d tell you to buy it before it changes, but you’d be better off participating in the free promo I just mentioned above.
Finally, over the next week or so I’ll probably make a few minor revisions to the book. Nothing insane, but I’ll probably add another more direct note against leaking confidential information and also note some of China’s new security laws and the response that some universities have taken to implement pseudonymity because of that as reasons why this form of knowledge is good to have. If you already have an ebook from Amazon it should update automatically to the updated version once it is out.
All in all, I’m looking forward so far. Stay healthy, stay safe, and have a good one!
