I'm a 40 something amateur writer with a half dozen original stories and collections available at Amazon www.amazon.com/Royce-Day/e/B00… and Smashwords www.smashwords.com/profile/vie… and entirely too much fanfic based on Peta Hewitt's Terinu webcomic.

Interests
Summary: Average sales month for ebooks. The audiobook sales for Captive were much, much smaller than before. I suspect the high sales numbers from before was ACX counting the free downloads from my Kickstarter supporters. More disappointing was my first royalty check from ACX. I really need decent sales tracking reports ala KDP so I can see why I’m getting paid what I’m paid.


Things to Do: Shadow of History/Future (title is influx) is proceeding much more slowly than anticipated. I’m waiting for a primary antagonist to show up. So far things have been led by Salli and Ali’s situation. Which is all right, but it doesn’t give them many handles on what they can fight against.

I was wondering how you publish your stories.

I have a novella I wrote for NaNoWriMo (not here, but rough draft on my FA).

It's dirt simple if you go through Amazon's Kindle Direct Program. Once you create a profile generally all you need is a well edited draft in Word format, and some cover art. The cover art is generally what causes me the most trouble.

Another publishing alternative I use is Smashwords, but their sales reach isn't as great as Amazon's, and the formatting required to publish is much more finicky.

That's okay, the little LED ones the Groupmind provided just aren't the same...
