How Heather got her HAT’ness back (Hardcover Edition)
This hardcover edition features my updated cover artwork (the interior pages remain unchanged). This version is printed and shipped by Amazon and doesn’t pass through my hands at all. Order from them directly (and I receive a royalty) 🙂 🎩
Because I’m a self-published author – I use Amazon’s print-on-demand service as a tool to print and distribute my work.
What I like about Amazon – is that once I’ve uploaded my artwork… they do everything! They print the book, ship the book, receive payment, handle returns and refunds.
As a creator – this is a huge relief.
I want to create… not be bogged down by the endless admin of selling, promoting and shipping my creations.
I receive a small royalty for every book sold on Amazon. To give you an idea, I receive $2.13 when someone buys my hardcover book on Amazon (for $23.50).
(That $2.13 is reduced even further by tax deductions and bank fees).
So yes… the royalty is minuscule but hey, it’s passive income! 😃 And sure, it may only be a teensy trickle… but hopefully – if there’s enough teensy-trickles, I may eventually have a stream!
