Rys Rising: Book I epic fantasy now in paperback

Yesterday I received the proof copy of the paperback version of Rys Rising: Book I. Satisfied with its physical presentation, I just made it available for sale at the print-on-demand service Lulu. The paperback has a friendly pricepoint of $15.00.

As I explained when I released the hardcover, I am barely making a couple bucks off each copy. The bulk of the price goes to manufacturing. The print versions of my new novel are about making them available in this format more than making a profit. I have learned that I am not going to make many print sales because the vast majority of my readership chooses ebooks, which have become the backbone of my business.

Because my focus at this point is firmly on marketing the ebook versions of my novels, I do not have plans to distribute the hardcover or paperback versions of Rys Rising: Book I to online retailers. I just don't see the point. To accommodate the necessary percentages needed by the retailers, the prices would have to be raised so high that no one would bother to buy them anyway.

But if you would like Rys Rising: Book I in paperback at the reasonable price of $15.00, please use the buy button for the printing service Lulu below. The book is a 6 x 9 inch trade paperback of 418 pages. As always, I appreciate your interest.
