As I type this, the book is going through Kindle Direct Publishing’s setup process. I’ve got everything uploaded, and the Royal James version of the book has been taken down off the web. Within a day or two, the book will be available on Amazon again, this time directly from me.
It’s a little strange, going back to doing it all myself. No more middle man nonsense. I get to control the price and see the results and the totals and not have to sit here, wondering about everything because I don’t have any access to the data.
I’m still not sure if it’ll be better or worse. It’ll be different. Everything is back on my shoulders now. I’m not just the guy writing the book anymore; I’m also responsible for the marketing and the formatting and everything in between. That’s probably for the best.
It’ll take another day or two for me to set up the paperback version again. I need to make sure everything is kosher and they don’t try to take it down because it’s exactly like a book that was just taken down off the site. Good times.
