Yes, my books are available on numerous platforms online, including some of your favorite ebook retailers. But you can also buy them right here directly from me.
Why buy here?
The advent of online ebook retailers has been AWESOME. Not only do authors not have to wait decades for an agent and publisher to finally notice them, if they ever do, but the royalty rates, the money paid directly to the author, is much better than traditional publishing contracts. With a traditional publisher, an author might, luckily, receive 25% of every book sale – that is after they’ve earned back whatever advance payment!
eBook retailers typically pay between 35% to 75% of a book sale to the author. This is tremendous compared to traditional publishers. But, in all honesty, very few authors will make enough to become full time writers. For most authors, book sales are a supplemental income to a modest one.
The book competition with millions of ebooks on those online retailers is just too tough. And, let’s face it, 33% of a 99¢ book is NOT MUCH MONEY! Even 75% of a $3.99 book isn’t enough to buy a cup of tea! It takes a lot of book sales to make what most people earn in an hour.
Buying ebooks directly from me helps reduce that wage gap even further. If you buy from me, I get 100% of the sale price minus PayPal processing fees. That means I keep about 95% of the amount you just paid. Which means that $3.99 is getting really close to buying me that cup of tea. And that makes me happy! And when I’m happy, I write more. 😉
What Formats are Available?
The same formats you’d expect from reputable ebook retailers that fit most ereaders. You will be able to download mobi files for your kindle, ePub for just about everything else, and even PDF if that is your preference.
Do I Just Get Some Cheap, Buggy Download Link?
Heck no! These books are hosted on Bookfunnel. After your payment, you will go to the Bookfunnel download page AND you will get an email with a link to the same page, just in case you accidentaly close the window before you download the book. So no boring link that takes you to a Dropbox sign-in form or drops the files to parts unknown on your computer. You will download your purchased files from a website designed to get you high quality files to your ereader.
Are These Crappy Files with Poor Formatting?
Absolutely not! These are the same files I use to sell ebooks on Amazon and Google Play created in Vellum to look amazing. The PDF files are the same ones used for the paperbacks.
Wait! What About VIRUSES?!?
Good question! These files are the same ones you’d find on Amazon and Google Play created in a safe, virus free environment and then uploaded to a secure site that specializes in providing quality ebook files, just like Amazon and Google Play. If you trust the big retailers, then you already trust my files and can feel safe buying directly from me and accessing the files on Bookfunnel.
Is There Tech Support if I Have Problems?
YES! That is what I love most about Bookfunnel. They have top notch customer support that will make sure you get the correct book file loaded on your ereader. If you have any problems, click on the “Need Help?” text located at the top of the book download page and someone from Bookfunnel will be in touch.
