Buy a signed copy of WOMEN AND OTHER CONSTRUCTS in print, get the ebook free!

I love my print books, but I read on my tablet more than anything else, because it’s portable, less likely to rumple than a printed page, and carries hundreds of books at once. This means that I read more ebooks than print, but I haven’t quite gotten over the need to own the physical artifact as well as the story. Lately, I’ve been buying ebook copies of the print books sitting on my shelves (just to get through my To Read pile), or buying print books knowing I won’t find time for it unless I get the ebook too… but why should I have to pay extra for a digital copy of a book I already own?

Why should you?

Now, if you buy a signed print copy of my short collection, Women and Other Constructs, you get an instant download of a DRM-free epub or mobi file along with it, free! Check out what’s been called “a varied, powerful collection of stories that showcases the range and talent of an author who will hopefully continue to rise in exposure in the SFF community.” (SF Signal, July 12, 2013) Only $10 plus shipping.

Print copies of WOMEN AND OTHER CONSTRUCTS, free to reviewers (or cheap, if you just want one)

IMG_20130716_165324

I have about 30 almost perfect copies of my short collection, Women and Other Constructs, and I want them to belong to someone else. Specifically, I’d like them to go to people who will read and review them. I don’t want to sell them, because there’s a handful of small errors–these were printed by mistake, before the final version of the interior was submitted.

If you’re a reviewer of speculative fiction (SF/F) for an established book review site or publication, I will send you the book for free. I’ll pay shipping; you just tell me where it goes.

If you’re not a reviewer somewhere else, but you want to read the book and will review it on your own website, or Goodreads, Amazon, etc, I’ll give you the book for free if you pay shipping ($3, if you’re in the US). Continue reading

And, there’s a new review of the collection:

July 27, 2013 – “This was my first time picking up anything by Carrie Cuinn and I must say I was very impressed by her simplistic style which can still portray so much. The stories included in the anthology show a great range of ability and talent in multiple genres.” – Goodreads

Self publishing stats: Women and Other Constructs, First 30+ days

When I published my first collection of short fiction, I said I would add up the stats after 30 days. The highlights:

  • The book cost me $0 to create. I did every bit of the work myself: writing, editing, page layout, cover design, and art. Ebooks and print-ready PDF, too. I also did the distribution, setting up for a variety of ebook sales, and print via Amazon. I chose methods that didn’t have any up front cost at all. The only thing I paid in advance was $10 a month for the online shopping cart.
  • The fiction in the book was worth $462.21–based on a $0.05 per word minimum pro rate for the new writing, and the standard $0.01 minimum reprint rate.
  • I published the book on June 28, and calculated income for the end of June/all of July; that’s about 33 days.
  • I made a total of $195.31 over that time. I haven’t been paid for all of it yet, but that’s the calculated income.

Doing the math

The stories were six reprints I’d previously published, and two stories I hadn’t sold before, along with an intro and notes at the end. Continue reading
