Cool!

Did you know that if you have a Kindle reader, and subscribe to Amazon Prime, you can borrow one book a month from the Amazon store on your Kindle?  It's kinda cool, but not enough to induce Odysseus and me to subscribe--one book is devoured in two or three days, tops. 

However.  On a whim, when I  was publishing my books, I enrolled it in Kindle Direct Publishing Select (KDP Select), which allows me to set five days free download per ninety days...and permits anyone with the correct permutation of acquisitions and subscriptions to borrow my books, free to them. 

And I still get paid. 

I got my first borrow, today.  Someone borrowed Survivors for the first time since it was published a year ago. 

If whoever borrowed the book reads this blog, thanks.  I hope you enjoy the stories.

  1. Kindle Prime is 70 bucks a year, a little rich for my blood. I buy a lot of the .99 books on Amazon, there are a lot of good ones in post apocalyptic fiction since self publishing became the norm.

    1. Survivors isn't post-apocalyptic--more psychological. I tend to find the post-apocalyptic more than a little depressing, so I don't write it. I trend toward urban fantasy, mythology, and a little humor. Survivors is a collection of stories I wrote in college while I was coming to terms with some bad crap that happened in my past.
