Familiar Things — Now In Print!
Hey everyone! This is just a post to let you know that a physical, paperback edition of Familiar Things is now available for purchase! And isn’t it a stunner?
You can purchase your copy on CreateSpace or Amazon. And I’d like to take the opportunity to thank everyone who cheered this process on, cheered me on, or is simply interested in my book and is planning on clicking one of those two links so they can pick up a copy. You guys are amazing.
And, on that note… gosh, how do I even talk about this? It feels incredibly awkward to me. Anyway, it’s come to my attention that a few people were waiting to buy the physical book because they were under the impression that, as physical books tend to be more expensive than ebooks, doubtless this would translate into the author (me) receiving a better cut of the money. More money means more royalties, right?
This was incredibly moving to hear. If anyone reading this had a similar thought process, all I want to say is thank you for thinking about me. Seriously–it’s so kind of you. I’m humbled.
However, I want to put that idea to rest. With self-publishing, I get to make the pricing decisions (to a point), and I have chosen to price the physical book so that I receive about the same royalty payment as I would for a copy of the ebook. This is both fair to me, and keeps costs down for my readers. So if you choose to buy the physical book, for whatever reason, know that the majority of your money goes to the actual production and distribution of the book itself. Ebook or dead trees edition–I make the same for each individual sale on Amazon. So please, make the choice that’s right for your pocketbook.
There is one way I can make a little extra money, though, if you’re interested in helping me out that way–and that’s if you buy your physical copy direct from CreateSpace. My royalty payment from CreateSpace is about double that of Amazon.
So, anyway–there you go! I look forward to hearing from new readers very soon!
