So this is the second time in 2013 that I have had an Amazon #1 Best Seller — last time exactly a month ago with my Comet ISON book. That time around I had cut the price of the book from $3.99 to 99 cents. This time around, with ‘Comets: 101 Facts & Trivia‘, a 99 cent book, I am giving it away for free — for 5 days.
Amazing. People won’t buy it for 99 cents but will take it if it is free. To be honest I am just happy that people are taking it. I don’t make any money from these books and royalties on 99 cents aren’t enough to even buy a cup of coffee. I am not sure if there is anything that you can buy these days for 37 cents — or at least something that I would want, given that I don’t eat candy or cakes.
But, it is fun.
