Getting close to publishing second one.
Start a new thread that is just about your books.
Wouldn't that be advertising?
No just an announcement. And we're all family here anyway.
Just look at the thread you are posting on. It was for Dr. Prepper's book.
By proud of all the effort you put into writing the books. You deserve your own thread.
I don't care much for Amazon. They told me I had to charge at least $2.99 for the two short stories I published together ($2.06 to me) or put it on Kindle unlimited where I would get about 5 cents every time it sells. I wanted to go $1.99, but that was not an option. I would not pay $2.99 for short stories myself.
You can price them cheaper but then you only receive 35% instead of 70%. So if you priced them at 99 cents each you would receive 35 cents royalty. I usually price mine at $2.99 unless they are short then I go $1.49 or so.
Box all of your short stories into one offering?
I'm like you, a short story for $2.99? I would not buy one for $2.99 and would feel guilty trying to sell one for that price.
All I write is short stories. Then I realized my stories (TEOTWAWKI) were related, either by time frames or subject matter. I put 13 of them into one "book", proofed read them and tweaked until I was cross-eyed. Now having a 3rd party edit. Might but the finish work on Kindle...
My first one packaged two short stories together. The next one will have three, but I lowered the price to $1.49 which also cuts my part from 70% to 35%.
