The book is on Smashwords now, and the first 20% of the book is freely viewable here:
From my research it appears the average book is lucky to sell even 500 copies, but at $2.99 a copy (only about half of which I’ll get) I’ll need to sell about 1,000 to be able to roll the profits into publishing it as a paperback. I’m really hoping that can happen. For some reason my gut is telling me the book would help more people in paperback, but maybe it’s just some preconceived notion I have. I hope the electronic version helps a lot of people too.
Even so, I have to admit to being excited – my first book is published! I’ll be celebrating tonight by ordering pizza and watching some TV. Pretty wild, huh?
