Of course it's great when people buy your books - I have an unhealthy obsession with checking where I've got to on the Amazon rankings and the royalty cheque is always welcome. Thai Kiss and Thai Lottery took around a year and half in total to go from initial ideas to publication. Charging £3.18 per book seems pretty reasonable, especially as Amazon and the publisher take the lion's share. But....
A few months ago I had the idea for a short story set in a US High School. Gun control was being discussed on every news show and the constant mantra was.... Something Must Be Done. At just 29 pages long it's pretty hard to justify a big price ticket on Amazon, so I only market this when they let me put it out for free.
The story is free all this weekend on Amazon. I hope you will download it and let your friends know
