The winners of last week's drawing for a free Ecopy of The Redemption are: Danie and Maxie!! Congratulations, ladies!
And thanks everyone for entering.
I've been working all week trying to get The Redemption into Print form so you'll be seeing that available soon. Which begs the question:
How much would you pay for a paperback? Though many people enjoy ebooks because of their convenience, I know it's always nice to hold a book in my hands. Also, I like to keep physical copies of my favorite books around too. Just in case. I mean what happens if an EMP strikes and we don't have power for months? What would I read?? (Yes, I know I'd have other more pressing problems, but still)
But the problem I'm running into with creating and printing my own paperbacks is cost. While my publisher can print en masse and keep the cost down, not so when you're on your own. Looks like The Redemption will be close to $17 for a paperback. That seems like a lot to me. Of course, Amazon will probably price it lower.. but would anyone buy a paperback for say $14 when the ebook is only $5? Thoughts?
On another note, I hope to go see Heaven is Real this weekend. I'm thrilled there are so many Christian themed movies out this year. Although I found Noah a little over the top, my hope is that it will inspire people to actually pick up a Bible and read the true account. Later in the year, Left Behind is coming out with Nicholas Cage. I can't wait for that. Still I find it really odd that Hollywood is suddenly so interested in Christian films when they so often bash Christianity. But I'm not complaining. Perhaps the Lord is making one last appeal to non-believers before this nation becomes completely Godless.
Now, if only they would listen.
Have a wonderful weekend, everyone!!
