Accentuate Members Only:Got A Print Book for Sale? The Robert Is Buying....


Well, I've received the final home contents payment from Liberty Mutual Insurance. Some of you may remember I lost a lot of books in that fire back in early January, and that I posted I would be spending some of the settlement money to purchase your authored books.

First: Only Print books please. I do not have a Kindle. I only want to restock my library.

2nd: Please use this thread to post links to your works.

3rd: Paypal or Amazon payments only....

4th: My objective here is in support of Accentuate authors only at this time.

*Fires up the printer*



I seemed to be looking down from an immense height upon a twilit grotto, knee-deep with filth, where a white-bearded daemon swineherd drove about with his staff a flock of fungous, flabby beasts whose appearance filled me with unutterable loathing.

Just keep writing and the good stuff will come.

Robert! That would be SO awesome. My North Country Cache is a print book, if it interests you, and I've always given Accentuate members a discount. Order it from booksleavingfootprints.com and I'll only charge you $20 (plus the shipping- so $25 total).

Sharky,

Can you provide a direct link to your book?

Robert, do you need the TTM books? I'd be happy to send those free of charge to you, one of each.




Love and stuff,

Michy,

The anthologies survived, but Bubba did not. I will be purchasing from TTM's print book offerings on Monday:
Bubba Goes National, by Jennifer Walker - Paperback
Bubba to the Rescue, by Jennifer Walker (Paperback)
Passionate Pens: RENDEZVOUS.

I want to purchase other Accentuate members' linked print books all at once for those on Amazon in order to qualify for free shipping, so get those links up everybody....

Robert: At the bottom of Books Leaving Footprints is a link labeled "Order Form" Just click that and fill in the info. NCC is the first choice, so it's easy. I see that all the images are broken on the order form. So... that tells me that our t-one account is really finally dead, and I'll need to move all those images. Well, that won't happen for a couple of days, but the form should work fine. I just had some graphics that were still on the old server.

If you want to know more about what you are ordering, if you click on the picture of the book, oddly enough, the free chapter loads (it's also on the old server). I see I have some work to do, but it shouldn't affect your ability to order or make a decision.

Robert, here's mine, if you're interested: https://www.createspace.com/3906781 $10.00
It's a collection of my short stories (the combination of three of my e-books on Smashwords).

Or, I could mail you an autographed copy, free of charge. Just pay actual shipping via PayPal.

(Glad you hear you are settled in.)

What a neat gesture. Planet Janitor Custodian of the Stars comes with 26 illustrations, TOC and full wrap-around lithograph cover--pure evidence that my publisher went overboard in a good way.

I guess those linked books are the complete list of Accentuate writer offers, so I went ahead and purchased:

1)Jennifer Walker's "Bubba Goes National" and "Bubba to the Rescue"
2) TTM's "Rendezvous"
3) Joan Young's "North Country Cache"
4) Theresa's "Milo the Dragon" and "The Lost Diadem"
5) Nancy Gibson's "Rocking Chair and Afternoon Tales"
6) Chris Stevenson's "Planet Janitor; Custodian to the Stars"
7) Catherin MacKenzie's "Loves and Liars"

Thank you, Robert! Maybe that'll help me get another story in the next time they put out calls.

You got them from Amazon?

Well, thanks for trying... I lose money on every single Amazon.com sale--I thought I'd told you guys that before. On most books, it's about a .10 loss on every book sold on Amazon. It's why I asked you all to buy from the site instead, if at all possible.

I would have rather just sent you the books for free and you covered the shipping, which would have been cheaper for both of us... and I did offer.




Love and stuff,
Michy

Sorry, Michy. I appreciated your offer, but I thought ordering off of Amazon at full price would provide better royalty to the authors....

Robert, I've said this before, many times too, I calculate royalties on the retail price of the book, regardless of sales price...

But even using that logic, if the book makes no money, and in fact causes me to lose 10 cents, then there is no profit to share in the royalties anyway... so I don't see how buying from Amazon would result in increased royalties when it doesn't increase profit for the publish and in fact costs us money.

If you (and others wanting to buy books from TTM) really care about the authors getting royalties, then you should, in the future, as I've said over and over to the people on this board, to please order from the TTM site when it's a hard copy book. It makes a huge difference for us.

I'm to the point where I'm considering not even doing hard copy any more at all--if I can't even get the authors on this board to buy from the preferred payment location, it's just increasingly difficult to get anyone else to either.

Anyway, no biggie--at least it temporarily helps sales rank--sometimes that will spur interest in the Kindle editions, so maybe something really good will come from that. That will be awesome. Thanks for wanting to try to help, though...

I do hope your library can build back up soon... I have some really nice hard cover suspense books I'd be happy to send you if you're interested in suspense and thrillers.

I also announced I purchased these books with links on Facebook to, hopefully, interest others enough to check these authors' books out themselves.

I didn't foresee doing this would get my tail kicked, though.
