For independent authors, the Kindle is a huge boon. To sell your work on Kindle, all you have to do is upload a cover picture and a formatted Word document. Easy peasy lemon squeezy. In the last two months Amazon has also made it possible for authors to receive a 70% royalty from Kindle sales, a far higher profit percentage than authors have ever received from the sales of hard copies.
In recent months, Kindle readers have been enthusiastic in their reception of I Serve, and a steady stream of electronic copies have been downloaded from Amazon's website onto the sleek e-readers of historical fiction lovers. Sales projections show that we will sell our 500th Kindle copy of I Serve sometime in the next two or three weeks.
To celebrate our ongoing success with Kindle sales, we are giving away a signed, paperback copy of I Serve (because, let's face it, the paperback is feeling a little left out with all of this hype about its electronic counterpart).
If you want to be entered in the giveaway for a paperback copy of I Serve, do any (or all) of the following:
- Comment on this post (include your e-mail address).
- Become a follower of this blog and tell me about it in a comment (include your e-mail address). If you are already a follower, you can still do this.
- Post about this giveaway on your own blog and give the link to your post in a comment (include your e-mail address).
This gives you the chance to submit up to three entries to win your own signed, paperback copy of I Serve. Once the 500th Kindle copy of I Serve finds a home, this giveaway opportunity will end and I will contact the winner.
