Welcome back blog readers,
This post will be lighter and less political as I’d like to share what’s been going on with me as an author. I recently received my second payment from Amazon for the sales of the paperback books, Kindle e-book copies and the Kindle Unlimited pay per page.
|Oct 1, 2018||EFT CREDIT AMAZON DIGITAL||$12.78||Paperback|
|Oct 1, 2018||EFT CREDIT AMAZON MEDIA EU||$0.30||KU Pay per page|
|Oct 1, 2018||EFT CREDIT AMAZON MEDIA EU||$4.44||E-book|
|Oct 1, 2018||EFT CREDIT AMAZON DIGITAL SERVICES INC.||$4.52||E-book|
While it’s not enough to retire, it’s still a milestone considering that the idea of putting out my story was part of my healing process and as a means of helping other survivors know that they are not alone.
Speaking of milestones, I also received my first review/recommendation left on my Author Page (Facebook).
“I know from experience than it takes a great deal of courage to come forward and speak about abuse suffered from people you should have been able to trust. Thank you for inspiring me to have the courage to tell my story as well.” – J. Brenner
I have also received a traveling book kit which is basically a large ziplock bag to help protect the book and adhesive labels to attach to the inner front cover to allow the finder to track/log where they found the book. I thought it was an interesting idea and I plan to send out four paperback copies along with a homemade bookmark. Hopefully the bookmark with help keep the pages from being folded (dog ear).
Where will I leave them? One will be left in town, the precise location is still unknown. The second will be left on the Norwegian Epic cruise ship sometime during the month of December of this year. As for the other two, that has yet to be determined. The labels are in place and have been noted as 1 of 4, 2 of 4 and so on. Hopefully those readers will also make note in the journal entry as to which one they found to help make it easier to keep track.
Otherwise, I have been busy blogging and working part-time. I do have an idea for a children’s book series, but I haven’t started on that project yet. Other than that, it’s business as usual and nothing overly exciting news to report.
Happy Thursday~ Hannah
