This is Plum Bear, ready to ship today!
So this morning, I’m trying to download and save files for 17 of my audiobook. I had a year or two left on the 7 year contract with ACX and was glad they finally changed their policy to 90 days because for a while there I was getting barely any money from them. Even though they pay a higher percentage for exclusive rights, I wasn’t making as much as I was with non-exclusive rights on Findaway Voices for a fewer number of titles!
Even after having these books out for 7 years, I’m still trying to pay off narrator fees for the majority of them. So it hasn’t been a get rich scheme by far, but it’s nice to have print, ebook, and audiobook for titles when you can. And every month, the cost of production is being whittled away.
If I had to do it all over again–I would only do it with the really successful book series and not do it for series that sell at a slower rate. Live and learn.
Anyway, I’m glad to be able to include the titles on Findaway Voices now, instead of wait a year or two for the 7 year contract to end with ACX.
In other news, my son has been creating a game that he hopes to release this summer!
He was working on creating the big boss fights while at my house for Christmas while I was battling it out with characters in my stories. It was a lot of fun!
Still working on edits for cougar, and was doing some last night on white wolf. Need more conflict. Conflict in life isn’t fun. Conflict in books is.
The weather has been up and down, hotter some days than I think we normally get in January and February! I’m enjoying it though. It’s going to be dropping and I’ll feel like hibernating!
Off to write!
Have a great day!!!
