I am doing a new experiment with an old retailer.
Smashwords, based in Los Gatos, California, is an e-book-distribution platform founded by Mark Coker for independent authors and publishers. The company began public operation in 2008. Wikipedia
Okay maybe Smashwords isn’t that old but it is older than my Indie Adventures.
So, here’s the deal. Smashwords has a publishers option to let the reader decide the price they are willing to pay for a book as in: “You set the price!”
Yep! You can pay $0.00 or $1,000,000,000 for a book. It’s up to you. And I have made that option available for all of my titles with Smashwords. Seriously. No fooling.
Man wouldn’t that be cRaZy nice if someone dropped a million bucks on one (or all) of my books. Woo-hoo! I would be like, (happy dance ensues)
“Yo fans and frenz it’s party at my place.” We would have soooo much fun with beers and grilling and…
(Dream comes to screeching halt. Author frowns and regains composure.)
Anyway… Check it out. [Note not all titles are up on their site yet and many copies at Smashwords are from years ago but I am trying to update while adding to the list.]
I’ll let y’all know how the “You set the price” experiment goes sometime in the near future.
You all know April is National Poetry Month so we have that to look forward to, right? Right!
In the mean while just look at my Nectarine tree blooming and making little baby Nectarines. The babies look like something from a horror film now but before long they will be scary delicious.
Does anyone have a poem about Nectarines?
No? Well here’s to inspiration.
