shameless self-promotion, free books 

Do you like Norse mythology? Do you like queer Norse mythology? Do you like Hot Feminist takes on queer Norse mythology?

Sweet. Me too. That's why I wrote some books about it and, hey. The short story anthology is free for the next few days. So... check it out, maybe? πŸ’œ

@alis If I get things through PRH, do you get more money? Also, the BookWorld link has an Adobe DRM'd copy, but is this one? I keep my ebooks in @libreture but I can't if they're DRM'd.

@Cobalt 1) Nah. Royalties are stupidly complex but for online retail purchases it's all about the same to me.

2a) Sadly, yup.

2b) I mean... if it somehow ~accidentally fell into for e.g. Calibre and all the DRM was washed off in the process... who would ever know? (By which I mean; all vendor sources will have DRM of some kind because... le sigh. Such is the publisher's prerogative and alas this is something I cannot control.)

@alis I always try to check and see if there is a place that sends a larger percentage of earnings to you, but if it's gonna be equal across the board then that's fine!

and re: DRM, that does suck. Kobo has been my most reliable source of books that can be massaged into my actual library, so I'll go through them. Thanks!

@Cobalt I mean, if you can convince a library to buy a copy, I get lit royalties from those lol.

But yeah, usually the royalty chain in tradpub goes something* like: library > audio > hardback > trade paperback > paperback > ebook > book club > "deep discount" retailers (e.g. Wal-Mart, etc.).

* ... Ish. It's been a while since I've checked my contract for the exact numbers, heh.

@alis Oh, right! Thanks for reminding me. I recommended them too. My library doesn't pick up everything I suggest, but we're a big enough city that it gets a helluva lot of them, so here's hoping!

@alis Oooh, shiny! *orders* (I don't have a kindle, but that's what Calibre is for... 😜)
