Electronic Product Marketing and Development / My New E-Book on Red Dawn
« on: December 20, 2012, 02:04:07 AM »
I just wrote an ebook called "Wolverines: Reflections on Red Dawn"

http://www.amazon.com/Wolverines-Reflections-Red-Dawn-ebook/dp/B00AMNO08S/ref=tag_dpp_lp_edpp_ttl_in

It's basically a bunch of essays about Red Dawn.


So far I haven't sold too many copies, but I haven't done much to promote it either.   I put an amazon link on my blog (with low traffic) and picked up a couple sales.     I originally priced it at $7.99, but was advised that might be a little steep.  Now it's $5.99.   The price in India and Japan are dirt cheap and the prices in Europe and the UK are a bit lower.  I figure this is because there's probably not a lot of people in these countries that are that interested in Red Dawn, let alone a book of some guy's writings about it.      It seems like I'm selling about one a day.   I wish I would've had it out a month or two earlier so I could've got in on some of the buzz from the remake coming out.   Better late than never, I suppose.   

I've had a blog since February that is more of a labor of love than anything, but this book just now made it profitable, even if it isn't much.

That works, Fjorgynn -  Thank you!

I was kicking around the idea of a blog where a post would be released daily and the content wouldn't necessarily be time sensitive.   Is there any sort of program out there where I could come up with a few posts beforehand and have them automatically released at specified times?   For example, type up five posts on Sunday and set one to be released every day at 6:00am?

Thanks, I'm still fumbling my way through all of this.

I'm kind of a luddite and not very good with this sort of thing.   I have a copy of "The Idiots Guide to Wordpress" in front of me that I'm using for help.  I know I need to come up with some good graphics for the header, but other than that, what else needs some work?

Hello -   I'm Ryan.   I'm a fan of TSP, started listening to five minutes with Jack and then jumped into the blogging world - www.americanoikos.com .  I've got a few posts under my belt and it focuses on things like preparedness, finance, urban homesteading and frugal living.     I'm not very tech savvy, but I'm starting to get the hang of some of this.
