  1. Thanks Elizabeth! Sunday’s list is my “reward” for my writing work all week, appreciate all the links.

  2. There are truly a great many helpful links today.

    Say, what do you think of ACX taking 60% of the money from audiobook sales, while taking away the escalator clause? Added to its whispersync price of many audiobooks to $1.99 — that gives authors who paid $3000 for the book only 80 cents per sale! For those of us who chose Royalty Share, we only get 40 cents! Ouch! I guess that is Amazon’s not so subtle way of saying they do not unknowns — since they pay for the production of the larger names authors. Sigh. Another challenge to overcome for Indie authors.

    1. Roland–I was very surprised to hear it, and sorry to hear it! And also glad that I didn’t sink an investment upfront–I did the royalty share option. I hope this doesn’t bode ill for ebook royalties in the future…

  3. Thanks for the inclusion. :-) It’s nice to know I’ve written and posted something people find helpful and insightful enough to be worth sharing.
