After much debate and being hung up twice by my publisher, Next Press Publishing based in NYC, I have changed my book prices to what I feel comfortable with. They had upped the prices of my books to $9.99 and $20. That was bs. My book is not worth that much Lol
I have updated both of my books with more pages and more info. The new prices are $7 for ebook/kindle version and $14 for paperback. The paperbacks are now being printed through Amazon’s beta KDP print shop. I am blessed to among one of the beta customers using the program. I am assured after the beta trial period is over the printing prices will go down. This means I can adjust my paperback book prices in a few months to make it cheaper.
Again ALL OF MY BOOK PROFITS go to 2 charities. The first charity is for families in polygamy that run out of money, need medical care bills paid, need food, or basic needs met by cash donations. The second charity is to help people who want to escape polygamy and literally leave with nothing to their name. Often they are saddled with bills they must suddenly pay back to the polygamists families or businesses that offered them food, shelter, and basic needs. The choice to leave the cults are very difficult and emotional and by offering to give half of my book profits to these people make me very proud.
To date between both charities I have donated over $421,000 plus from the profits of my book sales. At one time my book Almost Meri’ed had reached #22 on Amazon books in the category it’s listed in, Non-fiction biography. That’s when my book sales were soaring. Every time the show is on tv my books sales go up and up and after 1 year of doing this I am so very proud to know I have been able to contribute all of that money to 2 well-meaning organizations.
I keep no money from either book, I have done 4 book signings in the Chicago/Milwaukee area and will look at offers to do more book signings later this year.
I also am doing a second interview for a local Fox station in Utah. They hosted my first ever tv interview with myself and Lindsay. It’s on Youtube if you care to view it. The interview will air on this coming Wednesday February 8th, 2017 at 8pm local Utah time. Again we will put that up on Youtube for anyone that cares to watch it.
I am working this weekend on my opinions and comments on the Tell Nothings that recently aired. As I have heard it’s more lies and bullshit. And also I will be commenting on the ABC News piece that aired a few weeks ago. Those will be added this weekend some time. I have already written them up but I wanted to go back through and make sure I covered all I had wanted to.
Thanks for reading this. I hope ya’ll have a great weekend!
