So, since there’s been no movement of this short dream parable eBook, I removed it from Smashwords and moved it to Amazon KDP Select. I priced it at 99c (USD) and chose some Christian and insipirational categories for it.
Will let you know how it goes.
If you’d like to support me (disclaimer – it’s a Christian book, just thought I’d make that clear!), you can buy a copy here: The Planet of the Snake People.
If you like it, please rate and review – it makes a huge difference to the visibility of the book on Amazon.
… and so the journey starts.
As usual, I first read up everything I could find – including some great eBooks. Also looked around on forums and discussion boards what all the potential problems could be.
So, first of all, it seems as if I belong to the interesting country called “Other”, and that makes it really interesting to receive royalties: it’s going to be by check, baby! Oh my goodness … the anticipation … must be about a decade since I have last touched a check. Cannot wait.
But no, wait I will have to wait … because it gets sent through our beloved Postal Services … which is the home for a whole generation of small businesspeople who have been self-appointed to first check for checks – and gifts – and money – and whatever could be sold. Sigh.
So, we’ll see what happens. Such a shame that @KDP doesn’t realise that @Amazon does electronic transactions with me, so the authors in this developing country might be able to handle getting their royalties in the same way without freaking out too much.
But I live in hope.
Although I have to give credit where credit is due. The tax interview went well and was not too hard to do. And the rest looks pretty smooth as well.
I am going to be uploading an ebook sometime soon, and will let you know how it went.
In the meantime … happy writing!
