I was thrilled to find out that my memoirs were of interest to many of you, and especially to those I have listed in my "blogroll," which is really a list of all the new friends I made while engaged in this project.
With that said, I want everyone to know that you should feel no obligation to buy the new "self-published" book. After all, you have been privy to the posts as they happened! Therefore, please do not get the impression I am pushing this off on you.
I have ordered a "proof copy" in hard cover to review. If I am pleased with what I find, then I will go back into Lulu.com and make a paperback version available, which should be at least half the cost of a hardcover issue.
Unfortunately, the hardcover issue is available for $35.23 now, but, like I say, it has not been proofed, and a cheaper copy is forthcoming. That sounds like a lot, but think about it, where else can you get a final version copy of a single book one copy at a time? It cost money to provide that capability!
Inside, you will find 104,256 words, 290 pages, made up of over 118 chapters, many of which were posted here.
I will make a whooping $2.25 from the sale of each hard copy, which isn't much, but that is the nature of the game. The revenue from the paperbacks, will probably be half that! So, you can see that you would have to sell a "crap pot" full of them before making a fortune!
Incidentally, I have had "Cross+Hairs" out there for almost 2 years and I recently received $12.23 from Lulu, revenue from all the sales (most of which were mine) up to now! Man, what should I buy with that kind of cash?!
Anyway, I wanted you all to know that the choice is yours - I'll love you regardless!
Thanks for your faithful following here!
IF you so wish, please link to my "The Silverbacks" page. Although it is presently "adult humor" oriented, I will also post other items there from time-to-time, but I will no longer feel the pressure to post on a regular basis.
