Brandi is sick. Gordon and I are hovering on the edge of sick. Kid 1 is patient zero who infected all of us. Because Brandi is sick, I decided to look at the emails this week.
I had to reach for a bit of tranquility before responding to the one below, so here is a beautiful lotus for you.
As a fellow writer, I found your profile on amazon and I want to tell you that…
Help me sell my digital book and I will give you 50% share of the revenue. You control the money.
I will send you all the files. You sell it on amazon kindle, or any websites you like on YOUR name, (or my name if you want, but your account ID) then you collect the money and, periodically, you paypal me my 50% share.
You can add the advertisement for my novel at the end of your youtube video file, and/or any other channel as you see fit, and/or make an entire video specifically for my book. Feel free to do anything.
Sound good? If you like the idea but don’t like any specific detail of this offer, let me know and I will modify it.
My name is REDACTED I wrote a book named “TITLE REDACTED” , an English-language comedy erotic fantasy novel. In my opinion. it’s very good and funny book but the competition is really fierce everywhere and I can’t reach any potential customers at all.
If you like a formal contract, let me know. I can provide it, with My ID card etc.
Only if you want, the name TITLE REDACTED (as well as the cover jpg file) can be changed to your liking, without my permission, for your book entry on the website you are selling it on.
When you try to sell my book on your video, tell the viewers to click on the link on your video that lead to YOUR entry of the book on the website YOU chose to sell it on. DO NOT ask the viewers to search for the word “TITLE REDACTED” on any websites, because that might lead into other entry of the my book (and you will lose your revenue)
For instant chat, you can skype me at my id: REDACTED
WRITING SAMPLE REDACTED. If you are the author reading this, what you wrote is in a screenplay format, not a novel.
Any recommendations you see on this blog are there because we like the work. We will occasionally mention new releases from our friends, and these will be clearly marked so, as in the blog post will have a disclaimer of “The author is our BFF and we are biased.”
We do not use affiliate links when recommending other people’s books and receive no monetary compensation for mentioning other people’s books. Well, Grace Draven took us to dinner, so technically I guess we did receive compensation once.
Look, I get it, it’s hard to break out because there are so many books available now, but this is not the way to go about it. What you are asking us to do would be deeply unethical.
I may need to take Brandi to dinner. Because oy.
