Happy Christmas!

THANK YOU TO AMAZON AND MY READERS

I want to say a big, fat, ‘Thank you’ to amazon. Without them and their kindle, I wouldn’t be in the position I’m in today.I also want to thank all the lovely people who buy my ebooks. I hope you enjoy them.
I am at last earning a living income from my writing. And I have kindle – and my readers – to thank for that. My ebook sales have increased, month on month. My income arrives month on month, unlike when I was with traditional publishers, when I’d get paid every ten months for each book. First, say in the January of the year, when I’d receive my advance on signature. I  wouldn’t receive another payment from my publisher until the October of that year (after the payment had gone via my agent). if I’d written another book, I’d  receive another advance.
There are none of these lengthy waitings around with amazon. For each month’s sales you get paid 60 days after the end of the month in which the sales were made. So for July sales, I’ll get paid end September/beginning October. And for July sales, I’ll know by the 15th of the following month what I’ve earned. I keep a tally of daily sales, of course, both for my accounts and my own satisfaction, as it’s good to see the numbers mount up.
As I said in my last post, my start with amazon wasn’t promising. I only made a few sales in my first month or two. But I suppose that was to be expected. Readers, in particular, American readers, to whom I make most of my sales, had to get used to the sight of my book covers. They had to prepare to buy, if you like.
So here’s a big thank you, to amazon and all my ebook purchasers. Between you, you’ve changed my life. That’s a nice thing to be able to say on a wet Thursday in August.

To Kindle, or not to Kindle?

Are you thinking of buying a Kindle? So am I. I’ve read a lot about them and I want one! I’ve given my husband a few hints about what he can buy me for Christmas and it’s definitely not scarlet underwear. I already buy kindle books for PC and have quite a collection waiting to be read. I’m currently enjoying While the Savage sleeps by Andrew Kaufman.


I’ve also considered buying an iPad, but they’re too expensive for our budget. They look tremendous, but the screen on a kindle is reckoned to be far superior when you only want the gadget to read books, which is my requirement. And then there’s the amazon factor to consider. Amazon is the largest market for ebooks, I understand they even have an App which enables you to download from iPad and other ebook formats, though I’ve yet to find a need to try this. I read widely and I also have a need to buy non-fiction for research and sheer pleasure, so it’s the Amazon’s kindle for me.

Let me know what you think and what your preferences are.

Sod’s Law Rules

Ever have one of those days when everything you touch goes wrong? I’ve had three of them on the trot. I tried to download some music to put on my third video. Would the music go in the shopping cart? Would it heck! Every time I tried, I got thrown off the site. Turned out it was a problem with the Java script and their techie was able to do a small alteration to the programming to set things right.

Then I tried to add exact amazon links to the individual books on my website. I had trouble with this, as well. I had these individual links once, but then I changed my website software and they disappeared; though I didn’t realize this for ages. And then when I tried to do the links I found I’d forgotten how to do it… Anyway, I have finally discovered that I shouldn’t copy and paste all of amazon’s code for a book, but only the bit from http to the end of my individual reference. Of course, there’s no mention of this on amazon associates’ website.

Before that I sent a signed contract to America for converting my ebook for use on iPad, iPhone, etc (it’s already up on kindle), only to discover when I emailed them several weeks later after not hearing anything, that they hadn’t received my letter. Then I tried to scan the contract. Would my scanner work? No, it would not. So I downloaded various drivers from the net. It still wouldn’t work. So then I thought I’d photograph the darn thing, which I did. Would the email with attachments send? You guessed it. The computer just kept telling me that due to ‘technical problems’ my email hadn’t gone. So it was back to snail mail for a second attempt.

Anyway, I’ve got my website book links properly set up now. The music is on my video and ready to upload once Dead Before Morning is converted from its Amstrad disc, edited and proofread. And the American contract is in the post.

I’m glad this week’s nearly over. Next week must be better. Mustn’t it?
