Again I stress that none of this is making me rich or famous.

My goal, as an inveterate raconteur, is to elucidate.
Hence the 99 cent pricing.
I am used to being poor.

But, the book is now among the best sellers in ASTRONOMY
— not just comets, asteroids and meteors.

That is neat. Makes me amused. And that to ME, is all that matters.

Affirmation Yet Again That My Books Are #1 Amazon Best Sellers PROVIDED They Are Free!

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.

Just happened to see this, this morning — since I do not check Amazon U.K. listings of my books that often.

As I said previously this is why I write books — because I do NOT make any money from them. Purely a hobby.

I think every author, who has written more than one book, knows deep down which of those books is the best one he has written.

Anura Guruge SNA Theory and Practice book at AmazonFor the longest time I knew that my first book, written in 1983 (and published in 1984), “SNA: Theory and Practice” was the best book I had written.

Writing that book was magical. I was 30 years old and my semi-photographic memory was at its peak. I wrote that book, which is very technical,
basically from memory and definitely indexed it from memory. I did not use a computer. I wrote it longhand by pencil. It is 550 page book!

But, I now know that “The Next Pope: 2011” is now my Magnum opus. It is THE book that I want to be remembered for.
Looking back I can’t actually believe that I wrote it. I amazed myself. The research that I did for that book was
beyond painstaking and extensive. Four years later I think back and go: ‘Wow, I did all that?

It is an amazing feeling.

#1 In ‘Amazon Best Sellers: Comets, Meteors & Asteroids’ For Comet ISON Book. Funny. Do NOT Panic. It Is A 99 Cent Book.

The other Comet ISON book is #8.

Really does not mean a thing. Not much demand for books in this category.

So a SINGLE sale can send you to the top of the list!

Plus these are 99 cent books.

This just amuses me, but I have a low bar when it comes to things that amuse me.

Also look at the bottom row and the prices for ‘new and used’ printed books.

Yes, 1 cent, $0.01 (plus, typically $3.99 shipping).

I bought two Irving Stone 1st Edition books, yesterday, both on Michelangelo, for 1 cent!
That is what book sales have come to.
1 cent for a Irving Stone 1st Edition.

“Comet ISON, C/2012 S1 (ISON) — The Great Comet of 2013” eBook, Price Slashed From $3.99 to 99 Cents!

I did not know this gentleman till yesterday when he sent me a very nice e-mail complimenting me on the book.

[He also flagged a typo, where I had IOSN rather than ISON, which I have now fixed on both the printed and Kindle versions, this being the joy of today’s digital, on-demand, publishing.]

It is comments like these from folks that you don’t know that drives me to keep on writing books though I don’t really make a dime on these books!
It is but a very indulgent, expensive hobby — albeit, 99% of the cost really just in terms of my time since I don’t pay to have these books published
and I do, with Deanna’s help, all the work.

So, this was nice.

Writing another ISON book. Yes, that will be my 3rd on ISON and 4th on comets & 6th on astronomy.

Who would have thought that I would end up writing books on popes and astronomy.

But, that has always been the beauty of my life. I never know what I might be doing in a couple of years.

Well, must go. There is another book to be finished.

Thank you, Mr. Corneille.

I REPEAT. Do NOT panic or worse still, get bent out of shape. I am not going to be rich or famous!

I will never be that.

This is 99 cent book. At best I get 32 cents per copy sold!

Doesn’t even cover the cost of my 1/2 glass of red wine per day — that fuels my writing.

Just means that there is very little demand for books on comets, meteors and asteroids — which MUST be why I write books about them!

I just found it funny. Small things like that amuse me.
