Danger Quicksand is now on Amazon.com!

Thanks to Dwayne Melancon, I learned that my book, Danger Quicksand – Have A Nice Day, is now listed on Amazon.com!

I did not list it, but now that it is available through Amazon, I am happy to take advantage of this fortunate occurrence and to share any benefits with my readers.

You can follow this link and be among the first to review this book on Amazon. For those of you who are authors or bloggers, reviewing this book is an opportunity to get free publicity for your book or your blog.

You are also invited to share in any financial fallout from this listing. Those of you who use the Amazon referral system to recommend books to your readers can now refer people to Danger Quicksand – Have A Nice day and get a commission for doing so.

I am selling the book at the usual $19.95 price on Amazon and am actually doing the fulfillment directly, so I can sign and inscribe books as usual. This gives me the best of both worlds: exposure on Amazon.com and the ability to peresonally sign every book sold.

Thanks to whoever took the time to list my book on Amazon and write the editorial review. I am still amazed at the help I get from my friends!

    It occurred to me that you should have listed it on Amazon, and I’d wondered why you hadn’t–but I’m so very glad that someone did because I think this would be a big asset to sales.

    Good Luck!

  2. Susan,

    I hadn’t listed my book on Amazon before because I would have had to give Amazon a 40% discount and there were many problems reported with getting Amazon.com to show availability correctly.

    For example, some self-published books were reported on Amazon as available in 6 weeks although the POD version was available in less than a week.

    Under the current arrangement, I am an Amazon Merchant. My book is listed on Amazon and Amazon.com will contact me by e-mail as soon as someone buys and pays for it. This e-mail, commonly referred to as the “Sold – Ship Now!” e-mail, is my indication that Amazon has processed payment from the buyer.

    I am expected to ship within two business days, which I do anyway. I can also check for new orders by logging into my seller account at http://www.amazon.com/seller-account.

    I do my normal fulfillment process, including signing the book, and Amazon credits my account at some regular basis.

    The upside for me is threefold:
    1. I get exposure on Amazon and sell my book at the normal price.
    2. I pay a 15% commission to Amazon on all books sold.
    3. Amazon charges for shipping and passes along a credit so I make almost as much as if I were selling the book myself.

    What’s not to like? Amazon gets another title to sell with no inventory to handle and I get exposure to millions of people I would not reach otherwise.

    I need to write more books and get them on Amazon! So do you!

    I purchased this book last week for my husband who has lived most of this book.
    He is like a different person after having read it.
    I am extremely thankful and greatful for this book and to IowaHawk for advertising it. Most of all I am grateful to Mr. St. Lawrence for taking the time to write it.
