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.
