All the authors on this site are working hard to deliver independent works for your enjoyment, so your purchase is helping to keep them motivated.
So, why are publishing ourselves rather than holding out for a mainstream publisher?
The mainstreamers are curating the work you receive, and only feeding you what they want you to read, which translates as (reasonably) what they think will sell. We, of course, can write without restrictions, so what you receive are the authors' own words.
The publishers, wholesalers and retailers all take a chunk of the royalties. This means that for an author to make any headway, the book must be priced on the high side. With our own processes we can afford to keep the prices equal or lower.
Take care, keep safe and enjoy your new book.
