Forgot to post on here yesterday. Been really busy. Anyway, the book is out! You can find it here: LINK. And a little video trailer with music by me:

I'm actually curious (you can reply in PM or not at all if you want) how much of the list price actually reaches you. I know with paper novels a lot of it goes to various other people along the way, how about with ebooks?
Did you self publish or get it done for you by a company?
Right now I get roughly 70%, I believe. The publisher still does some work, even with the ebook. We're working on some future plans, though, that will make changes to the publisher.
Originally I self-published, but then I got this publishing group to take me on, so I made some edits and they're publishing the second edition, plus the first edition of the sequels (second one is almost done with the first draft).
No worries. Even purchasing it helps me move up in the stats, which gets me more exposure.
We use Amazon for ebooks, but we also do paperback (and soon hardcover), and those will be available in some actual stores, as well. Trying to get them into my local store.
So long story short, the day after my book went life, the publisher announced that in three months it will be closing its doors unless we pay for their services (vanity press). I have no interest in that. Instead, I'm starting my own press: Hawks Barrow Press, and have put my book back up for sale. The corrected link is here: link
