Vet Day

I'm off for veteran's day. Just got finished making waffles (by request).

No sales to report on Weeds Among Stone. So far, I am well below my already low expectations. I've dropped my price to 0.99, and now I'm down to the 33% royalty rate. So, I'll make 0.34 per sale. That means I only need to sell 150 sales to cover the cost of my printed copies, and another 100 sales to pay my editor. (I owe her dinner.) Expected sales? 50 is normal for self publishing.
