I wrote my book Diary of a Gay Nerd for therapy, but I published it because I thought it would help other people. I agreed that the price was a bit high, $16.99 for the paperback and $6.99 for the ebook. The reason the paperback was so high was because CreateSpace’s (an Amazon publisher) fees were so high to print the paperback, that I was only getting a couple dollars back. I wanted the money so that I could make the donations to all three of my charities, but I wasn’t getting any sales from the paperback at all, so I have decided to lower the price down to $10.00 Believe me, I tried making it $7.99, $8.99 and $9.99 but it wouldn’t let me because the European sales were giving me no profit which I guess wasn’t working for them. The profits are so low that I probably will never see a dime, but I don’t care about that.
The reason the ebook was so expensive was basically for the same reason, I was only getting a couple of dollars back, but I really don’t care how much money I get back from the ebook anymore.
I never intended to get rich from this book, I only wanted to get my story out there, so now I have made it easier for you to get a copy.
The Kindle version will be $3.99 and the paperback will be $10.00 at Amazon and the Nook version will also be $3.99 at Barnes & Noble. And finally the ebook version at Rainbow eBooks is $3.99. Remember, if you buy from Rainbow eBooks, you are supporting a LGBT business who makes donations to many LGBT issues.
I really hope that you buy my book because I want everyone to know my story. Once again, 30% of ALL sales will go to 3 LGBT charities of my choices so they each get 10% as it says on the front of the book. You aren’t just helping me, you are helping others by buying my ebook and paperback.
Bless you all and thank you for reading.
