Doo-Doo-Dooooooo! THEY'RE OFF!

Well, that's that.

Just uploaded the book to CreateSpace.  Hannah Singer, Celestial Advocate will now be reviewed by the staff to make sure my files are compliant and my material isn't too objectionable.  Went with the Pro Plan and selected every distribution channel I could.

Here's how the stats shake out:

Hannah Singer, Celestial Advocate
7 stories (okay, so maybe "short stories" is a misnomer)
83,500 words (give or take)
184 pages
6X9 size
Price point:  $15

Regular sales under Pro Plan:
Cost to print:  $3.03 each.
Amazon's cut of sales:  $9.03
My cut of sales:  $5.97

Distribution channels:
Amazon's cut:  $12 and change
My cut:  a little under $3

Keep in mind, it is print on demand, so of course, you'll be paying more than a traditional publisher.  But those also require a LOT more cash up front.  For $39, if the book flops, I'm not out anything.

Once they verify the files, I need to order a copy of the book as a proof.  If it checks out, the book goes on sale.  I'm hoping to have it ready to go by next weekend.  Wish me luck.
