You Were a Rose

I've had a go at self-publishing!  I've published a short story on the Kindle Direct Publishing site.  It's extraordinarily easy to do and it feels great to click onto Amazon, enter the story title and see it there, available to purchase for 86p.

As for royalties, I'll receive a princely 26p (35% before VAT is added) for each digital copy sold.  I don't think I'll be an overnight millionaire, but i might have enough for a pint by the end of the year.

So if you have a Kindle and want to find out if I'm actually any good, follow the handy link in the side bar and part with a little loose change.


  1. Bought it...loved it! Looking forward to the next one.

  2. I'll buy it to give you 26p - enjoying the blog - please follow mine if you wish thanks

  3. Bought it and you've gone form 47,005 to 12,675 rank! haven't read it yet, been busy writing :-)

  4. Yes, read it all in one go, thats' praise from me I am a slow reader! Wondered what I had let myself in for to begin with, but clever idea. Well done!

  5. Thank you so much for this. I'm a writer out of Nootdorp, Netherlands and what you've said here on blogger.
    com could not be said much better. Going through this
    information kinda reminds me of my past roommate, Stan.
    He persistently kept preaching about this. I most
    certainly will send these ideas to him. I'm certain he will have a very good read. I appreciate you for revealing this.
