I just found NEW copies of my 14-year old romance on Amazon for $82.42 (3.99 shipping).
Is that crazy or what? Don't panic, they have another copy for only $19.95. And used for a penny. :)
Please, please...let the insanity stop! Don't pay $85+ for my little romance, I'll send you a copy. :-)
(Note: this is not a Christian romance but it's not R-rated either.)
Every now and then I check and this is the first time I've found my book (new or used) on Amazon. Where did it come from? Do used bookstores stockpile? How come mine is just making it out of the pile and onto Amazon? I don't understand how or why this happens. Can someone explain? A friend just bought a copy from another bookseller for a couple of bucks. Why is it I'm not getting any 'bucks' on these sales?
I'm in the process of trying to get the rights back on this book but I've been told it's a slow process. Publishing is a crazy business. About the time I think I understand--everything shifts and I'm back at square one.
When a writer finally sells his or her book, who do you think makes the most money: the author? the agent? the publisher?
