Did I ever tell anyone I have an Amazon Author Page?

Because I do. And I sell some of my short stories there. They’re $0.99 cents each, and because I decided to price them so low I get 35% of that ninety nine cents (I’d publish them at $2.99 for 70% of the revenue, but I don’t want you guys to have to pay that much).

So here’s the thing: Right now I am like an online waitress. Only with words. What I mean by this is that I live off of tips. Whether it’s donating to my paypal for bonus chapters of my web series or a commissioned story, depending on the price, or if it’s buying my short-stories on Amazon for less than a dollar, this is how I’m making my living right now.

And so considering the fact that I’m presently in college, need to finish paying off my tuition, and have to buy food for myself until the end of August with only half a dollar in my bank account, any and all donations, however minimal, to help me earn a living would mean the world to me.

So if you have at least a dollar to spare, this would mean the world to me.

Thank you.

Publishing Your Own E-Book

By J.D. BIERSDORFER

Q.

I want to publish my own e-book and sell it online on a major Web site. Where do I start?

A.

Writing, editing and proofreading your book manuscript is the first step. Once you have finished your book, perhaps one of the easiest ways to get it out there for sale is to use publishing tools from the major online bookstores like Amazon and Barnes and Noble.

Amazon has a Kindle Direct Publishing service that lets you self-publish your own e-books and sell them in its online Kindle store. The site has tutorials for properly formatting and uploading your book file to make it compatible with the Kindle, Amazon’s own e-reader hardware. You need an account to use the service, but you can use your existing Amazon.com account if you already buy things from the site. Amazon’s Kindle Direct Publishing Help page has the information you need to get started, including an explanation of the royalties you can earn and Amazon’s share of the profits. 

Barnes and Noble has its own publishing platform called PubIt that can be used to upload and distribute e-books in its Nook online bookstore. The PubIt site accepts files in the ePub format, but it also has tools that convert Microsoft Word, RTF files, HTML documents and plain-text files into ePub. It doesn’t cost anything to use PubIt, but you do need an account, and Barnes and Noble takes a percentage of your book’s list price in exchange for selling your work. The PubIt Support page has information on prices, percentages and using the service.

If you do not want to use a publishing tool dedicated to a specific online store, an e-book distribution service like Smashwords can help you get your work out to a variety of online bookstores, including Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Apple’s iBookstore and the Sony Reader store.

GUYS, I'M DESPERATE!

I’m not doing this as a link since no one pays attention.

I am a young adult fantasy author and I recently self-published my first novel to Kindle. Sales aren’t going very well so I am trying to raise money to print 500 copies of my book (only amount that’s actually worth while buying, send me an ask and I’ll explain). 

Anyway, I’ve posted and reblogged before with no one even looking at my post. Please guys, I am desperate! I really want to get my novel off the ground but so far I haven’t had many sales and it looks like my dream of being an author is over :(

I really need your help! It doesn’t have to be much, and if you can’t donate please signal boost! I’ve seen plenty of these gofundme things get thousands of notes and raise more money than I’m asking. 

Just this one thing, it’s all I ask. 

Please click this link to go to my gofundme page:

Alternatively, if you want to support my novel, click these links to go to the Kindle store:

US: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00QKT6Z5E

UK: http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B00QKT6Z5E

The novel is available in all countries with Kindle but I’ve only included these two as there are too many to list.

Please guys, I need your help! I see you helping artists who draw, well I’m an artist who writes. Aren’t I worth as much as them?
