    You might also want to check with Amazon to see if .99 is in their sweet spot for pricing. Authors receive 75% royalties, if it is . . . I think lol
    Ummm. I answered that already. $2.99 is the Amazon sweet spot for pricing.

    Gary. Sorry, I didn't notice. But my understanding is that $2.99 is the pricing floor for the 75% royalties. I think $2.99 - $9.99 qualify for 75% royalties in the US and Canada. If I'm wrong, someone please correct me. Thanks.

    That's right. But the most competitive sales point at Amazon is $2.99.

    I just found out that Trafford takes 50% of the list price of the ebook so I opted out of that and will upload it myself, hopefully starting this weekend.

    Does your contract with Trafford allow for that? You'd better check. If they have the electronic rights encumbered (which most would), you don't have the right to list it separately.

    You're right, I haven't. I tried the Trafford bookstore link again, but it's down. (Does this happen often?) I was going to read the blurb for the second time.

    Guess it's just me, then. From reading your teaser, Defending Your Life was the first thought that came to me. It too had a review of the dead guy's life, but the whole past life, not just a year. DG didn't ask to live the last year of his life over again, true, but he had to incarnate instead.

    BTW, the movie is one of my all-time favorites.

    Caught the Trafford website up, and it looks like there are no impediments to posting a e-book separately.

    I checked with them by phone. They agreed and will send confirming email.

    Sorry. Above I said 75% royalties. It's 70%.
