Sales Tracker April – July 2013

** Update 8/2014 – Proceeds have been donated, and I am in the process of making the e-book free, and the paper back as cheap as I’m allowed. See my donation post here: Donation of my Proceeds to The Lifeline **

As most of you probably know, I’m donating all the proceeds of the sale of my book to The National Suicide Prevention Lifeline. My original goal was to make a donation once I made $100 of sales. I haven’t gotten there yet, but felt I should let anyone who is interested know of my progress. I may never get to that point, lol.  😉

Just so you know how I’m paid, there are two different formats available, a regular print book and a Kindle book.  The paper back sells for $9.89 on Amazon, and for each sale, I get $2.29.  The Kindle sells for $2.99, and for each sale I get around $2.04. There are some slight differences based on what country it’s sold in and whether it’s borrowed from the Kindle Lender’s library or purchased.

Nadine on Writing: Author Interview: Carrie Lange

Nadine on Writing: Author Interview: Carrie Lange.

Here’s an excerpt from my recent blog interview. To read the entire interview, please click on the link above. Nadine is a wonderfully talented writer, with a gorgeous blog. Check it out, you won’t be disappointed. 😉

Author Interview: Carrie Lange

 Today I have an amazing guest author: Carrie Lange. Carrie’s novel is a heart-wrenching tale of overcoming grief and guilt–a story I will never forget.

She also runs the Little Blog of Letting Go, a site dedicated to suicide prevention, support for depression and grief, and encouragement for everyone.

 Would you mind telling us why and how you wrote the novel? I imagine it must have been a very difficult emotional experience for you. What message do you have for readers?
The book was originally written for my teenage daughter, who began struggling with depression and thoughts of suicide the past few years. In her struggle to understand her own depression, she kept asking me about Dan’s death. Although very young when he died, she loved him very much and had a difficult time understanding his sudden loss. As she grew older, and began to realize what happened, her questions became more pointed. Letting Go first began as my way of explaining to her an unexplainable act.
One of the main characters, and the one readers seem to love the most, Tar, was not a figment of my imagination. My daughter told me about talking to Dan’s friend. She told me Dan wasn’t up in heaven with God, but with his friend, Tar, who was dead too. That night – after watching Galaxy Quest about five times in a row – I had a dream about Tar, which probably explains why he looked like Alan Rickman to me!
 My goal with Letting Go is to both prevent suicide and help survivors understand why people become suicidal. I also want to help all people gain a better understanding of the grieving process….

Carrie Lange, Author Of ‘Letting Go’

Here’s a great book review blog that featured me today! 🙂

I Love To Read

“Several years ago I was engaged to a man named Dan. At the time, I was 29 years old, no longer a child by anyone’s standards. It wasn’t blind puppy love, or infatuation. I had already been married once, and had a 3-year-old daughter.

Dan was to me, the most perfect man I had ever met. He was financially and emotionally stable. He had a job, a car, an apartment, and plans for a bright future. In the year that we were together, we never fought, indeed, I never saw any hint of emotional or psychological trouble.

One day, quite unexpectedly, I got a phone call from his sister. He was in the hospital. He had cut both wrists and been found, very close to death, in his apartment.

He had surgery to repair the physical wounds, and spent a week in the hospital’s psych ward to heal the emotional wounds. All…

My Book Sales/Donation Tracker

 

** Update 8/2014 – Proceeds have been donated, and I am in the process of making the e-book free, and the paper back as cheap as I’m allowed. See my donation post here: Donation of my Proceeds to The Lifeline **

I am currently donating all the proceeds I make from the sale of my book to The National Suicide Prevention Lifeline. So, I feel it’s important to provide some sort of accountability to readers of my sales and donations.

I plan to make my first donation once (if) I make $100.00 in proceeds. And after every $100.00 there after. Currently, I’m a long way from hitting that mark! But if I ever do, I will begin tracking on this page.

Trick to get huge audio book discounts

I love you, sir. Really… I…Love…You… 😉 I discovered the joy of audio books when I had and hour and a half bus commute to work. Then I realized they are perfect for helping me get to sleep. this is so perfect, can’t wait to try this “trick”. My Kindle is already one of my favorite things, now it’s gonna be even better! =D

Brian P. Kayser

I’ve just recently found that I love audio books.  I figured they were for the hearing impaired or for workers with long commutes.  My commute is only about 15 minutes to work.  However, when working to produce the audio book for The Curse of Europa, I figured I should listen to an audio book or two.  Now I’m hooked!!  Even though my commute is only 15 minutes, that is still a good 30 minutes a day.  If I go to lunch I may listen again in my car, or take headphones and listen while I eat.  It’s great because it’s hard to find time to read and it is easy now to plug reading into time that is otherwise “wasted”, such as driving a car.

On our trip to Florida (driving from Michigan), it was great.  It kept me awake better than the radio.  Even laying in the sun.  Sure, you can…
