I have serious insomnia. Here it is after 2am and I can't sleep. I took my sleeping pill 4 hours ago and I am wide awake.
I wanted to try to write but no matter which story I open up, the words won't come. There are just too many of the voices in my head and I can't hear myself think long enough to write even one sentence. So, I'll babble here for a while and hope something I say stimulates my brain into action and I can get back to writing.
PA says they hold the electronic rights to my books so I can't go publish them with an e-publisher, yet they want $99 before they will publish my books in the e-book format. And on top of that, they charge $9.95 for the e-book, which I think is just too high. People aren't going to spend that on an author they know, let alone an unknown one.
I can't wait until the seven years is up on my contracts. I will republish all my books then with another publisher. At least I can set the prices then to something that is a bit more fair for the everyday reading consumer. I wan't my rights back to all my books but that costs $99 also, per book. Sometimes I just wish I'd never heard of this company.
I shouldn't be talking bad about them on my own site but I really can't help it when I see how they work and how they treat their authors.
All of the 5 books I am working on now though will go to Pub It and be published in e-book format. I think I like that idea much better. I can set the prices and I get a much higher royalty. I went to a webinar last night to see how Pub It works and I was impressed, to say the least. Barnes & Noble runs Pub It and I know they are reputable, so I believe I will be using them from here on out. If you want to see anything of my new books as I write them, you can go to www.jcnoelle.webs.com and see it all there.
