I went thru CreateSpace (paperbacks) and Smashwords (ebooks) for my short fiction books. Not getting rich by any means, but not having to share with an agent or anyone else. And I retained total control.

Traditional publishing, while nice and ego boosting, means nothing if you know how to market yourself. Even if you did find an agent and publisher, you're still going to be doing most of the work yourself anyway.

Mine are horror short fiction. Ten to twenty copies (both print and ebook combined) a month. And to be honest, I'm probably the worst marketer possible. Most have been sold by word of mouth from buyers and those that received free copies in the beginning (over two years ago).

Nah, no 99 centers for me. By the time Amazon and Smashwords took their share - wouldn't be much left. I'm content. Currently they are 4 (ebook) and 8 (print) bucks a pop. The work is out there. I actually have a few fans. Will be doing another one in the fall. Like I said, not getting rich, but I'm happy.

I have a few books on Kindle. They are non-fiction and make around $2 a month each. They were CRAZY easy to write, though. (1-2 days each, seriously!)

I'm not getting rich, but it's inspired me to get into fiction. I already have around 10k words on my first paranormal romance. :)

It's going to end on a cliffhanger, too. Hopefully that will make people eager for book 2. :mrgreen:

My first ebook was a combination of old, related articles that I reworked and updated -- not hard and it sells. I am only with Amazon at the moment, but have Smashwords and CreateSpace on my to do list.

Think: people spend $140+ for a Kindle. Its a waste unless they buy ebooks instead of hard copies, no?
