Subby, here. I hope the Fark gods forgive my blunder and list this in the "FarkUs" and not the "Fark Party" as I bone-headedly submitted.

My thriller, The Night Watch might be to her liking.

A serial killer is preying upon the most deadly citizens of Rome...the gladiators.

That's actually quite true.  A lot of eBooks don't get a second farking glance because of their shiatty covers.  An author goes to all the trouble of creating his or her story and they put some slapdash cover on it?  Not a good sign that something of quality awaits inside.  Props to Ernie the Fork for getting good covers on his works.

Thanks to you both.

I've been lucky to work with a few talented people. I do most of the work myself, but the exceptional background to Cicada is a professional photograph who allowed me to use her image with nothing more than a credit. Lucky me! Also, the cover to Crooked was pretty much a gift from a talented online friend.

I agree...covers sell more than anything else. Than comes the back cover synopsis and finally the first few pages....

Hrm, that sounds worth a shot. I'm really curious though (not that I'm an aspiring author and if it isn't too nosy) how big your print edition run was? I've heard about print on-demand too, is that something you looked into? And I hope that you get a little something from the Prime members like me.

I'm exclusive with Amazon on their KDP platform...so basically it is print on demand.

As for the books borrowed by Prime members, I get a royalty on those as well. So you get a free read and I get paid...Win-Win!

I do hope you check my stuff out. And if you're so inclined, please leave me a review. I'd love the feedback...aspiring as I am over here and all....  Thanks!

Ernie--- I left you a message on your website the other day... almost finished with A Crooked Mans Mile.... (according to my Kindle fire, I am at 93%)
Going to download the rest...
Love Love Love that book....

Thanks for plugging, I don't know if I would have chosen that book otherwise! But, i am so glad I did!!!

I just signed up for Prime for the free two day shipping and to see if the streaming was worthwhile. I did not know at first about the 'free' books. I was curious what, if any at all, the authors and such got paid for a Prime reader. Is it a reduced royalty from a purchase, or are you getting similar pay?

The royalty rate varies from month to month (it's a pool shared by all the KDP authors) but I make about as much per book on a borrow as I do a sale since my books are listed fairly cheap to begin with at $3.99.

Good on you then. Since the price is right, I'm sure I'll give one a read.

Neat, thanks for sharing. Next time I turn the wi-fi on my Kindle on I'll be sure to get it. (Fun fact, public library books can't be deleted off your Kindle after 14 days if you don't sync).

douchebag/hater: They are both fictional holidays with no basis in reality.


I hate to burst your disgruntle bubble...but ALL holidays are fictional constructs. If Mankind should be erased, I am quite certain the universe won't be celebrating Easter and Arbor Day after we're gone.

But hate on, Eugene...hate on....
