People asked how I priced “Pale Blue Jesus". The Indie publishing world is not pretty but it is the future. The printer sets a minimum price for advanced distribution (to make it available to a lot of outlets). I am making about 50 cents a copy. It is a trade paperback, not a clunky supermarket paperback, it is worth it. Try it, you’ll like it or be disturbed by it. E-reader copies are cheaper. I did the pulped-tree-pieces version for the Luddites who insist on holding a book and sniffing printer's ink.
