Trying to publish my stories priced at free has been an experience! And a journey I am still trying to conquer.
Draft2Digital.com has made it possible, for free, to get a book on Barnes and Noble and Inktera (ePub) priced at free. I am hoping to get it price matched on Amazon to get it free there too. It is a short Erotica story I wrote that I am using to test so it has a bit more hurdles to jump then a non erotica book.
Goodreads and Smashwords (ePub, mobi, pdf and more formats) allows an author to make their books free and Smashwords gives you so many formats it’s crazy and all for free.
Amazon seems to be the biggest and hardest to tackle but I’m trying.
I used canva.com and it cost me a dollar for the cover.
If you know of any tips I could use to get my books priced at free at Amazon I’d love to hear from you! Thank you so much!
Through a blog I follow, I found out about being an ‘ethical author’. While I have always had strong beliefs in life, this organization came up with a perfect code of conduct.
Now, with NaNoWriMo.org finishing up, I am busy editing each chapter of my books, “Love Awakens” that I wrote for 2014 NaNoWriMo.org’s writing challenge. I am using grammerly and editing this book chapter by chapter. With my role as a caregiver of my mom and grandma and being a mom to two boys and four cats, life can get a bit tangled for me. Writing helps me remain sane, or as sane as I will ever be!
My mom who has multiple sclerosis is getting her motorized wheelchair tomorrow which is a boon! She can barely hold her head up now even though we are doing her shots, it is frustrating to see her so frail! Then my grandma is still going to her physical therapy appointments like today’s, where she walks with her prosthetic leg. 80+ years and having had her left leg amputated above the knee only seven months ago, she is amazing. This holiday season will be blessed as she is no longer in clutches of the horrible pain she suffered for too long. She is a very strong woman, all of us are! Since I am now the chef and my carpal tunnel keeps me from being able to do many things, we won’t be having a turkey for Thanksgiving this year. I think we’ll go with a rotisserie chicken, mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce, pumpkin pie, black olives and gravy for those who want it. I am not a gravy person. I hate peas and carrots too. Thank goodness I can hide the peas and not serve them this year!
