    The Doc cannot answer right now because she is way too busy counting all the money she is making on her two books (which are selling very well it appears).

    I hope they are! I read both of them and enjoyed them. Passed them to my nephew in Oklahoma who passed them to his daughter in Texas.
    Where's number 3?????

    Sales are going very well - slacked off a bit, but I expected that!

    Number 3 (which is not part of the premonitions series) got thrown off schedule a bit by family issues, but I hope it will be out by the first of the year. :) I'm glad you enjoyed the first two, and thanks for sharing them! :Thankyou:

    Put something on Amazon and see if you can't shake some money out of the tree. You could also put a short story on here to share with us.

    If you have something written it is super easy to publish on Kindle. It costs nothing. If you have questions I can likely help, I have many published stories. Just published 2 a couple days ago.

    First you write a story or a how-to or anything else. Then you go here......

    https://kdp.amazon.com/en_US

    And follow directions. Or just go there and read things over, then ask me or KDP questions.

    You worked on it. You are proud enough of it to risk sharing it with us and the world. I give credit credit for that.

    Even if great, they might not sell, (I have two that are on Amazon that are selling, but slowly).
    Good luck

    Those are HIS cornflakes. He is worried about the quality of his own work.

    I saw that and edited my response. I am sensitive to those who pan a work before even reading it since I have had it done to me.
    Thanks for the heads up as I might not have caught it myself.

    There is a 45-60 day lag in the beginning you then get a royalty every month if you have sales. It is a direct deposit into paypal and you must transfer from there to your own bank account from there. If you want direct deposit to you bank account they take an additional percentage.
    Good luck with your sales.
