The Price of Success

The Where are our Children Serial Novel will be priced this way: Episodes 1,2,4,5,7 and 8 will be available for free, while the remaining parts 3,6, and the finale number 9 will be priced at $.99 a piece. That's $2.99 (if I'm figuring my math correctly-- and that is a big if) for the entire story which I think more than fair.

I've given my first three works: Waiting ( A Twelve Worlds Novelette), Fumblerooski, and The Gospel According to John for free on over outlet except Amazon, which doesn't allow it, all for over a year now. It's old news that I never thought I would write again. So it didn't bother me to leave these titles that way. I wanted to be read and I have. I want to have compensation for being read. So these titles will remain at their current pricing for the foreseeable future. But it is time to grow this thing. So all titles published will be priced at least at  $.99. I hope to have a lot to offer over the next few weeks, months and years.

In speaking of those older titles: All three are available in paperback editions through Amazon and Createspace and are priced at $5.99 each. Waiting and Fumblerooski should be for sale as audiobooks any day now. And I leaning towards having The Gospel According to John produced as well, even though I'm sure it won't have even an hour's running time.

Here's my current scheduled pricing template:

Short Tales of Fiction $.99
A bundle of five stories $2.99
A bundle of ten stories $3.99
Where are our Children (Novel Version) $2.99
Createpace Editons of a bundle of ten stories: TBD
Audiobook Editions of a bundle of ten stories: TBD
Where are our Children (Createspace) TBD
Where are our Children (Audiobook) TBD

I'll announce each and every release and reminder of price here, on twitter, and my Facebook page.

There is a price to pay for success.

I'm reaching for it.
