This is the day the LORD has made. Let us rejoice and be glad in it.
BIG announcement time on Wade Webster.com. I finally figured out how to get some of my prayers I presented online into an ebook format. Amazon has begun helping me cross the threshold of moving from being a writer into becoming a professional author.
I currently have two books available with more on the way. Move your gaze over to the right hand column to see the clickable pictures of my masterpieces titled PRAYERS of a WRITER. When you click on either one you’ll be taken straight to the page where you can buy it for the measly price of $0.99.
That’s right, you can be blessed for less than one U. S. dollar, if you live in the US that is. I can’t be held responsible for exchange rates throughout the world. Some things are out of my control.
The plan is for a total of 8 ebooks over the course of the next couple of weeks. After I can get them off Amazon’s KDP Select program, which will be 90 days after the last one is made live, I’ll put them into a printed book. At least that’s today’s plan. The longer I serve God the more I’ve learned to write my plans in pencil so they can be erased to match His plans.
Do I think I’ll become rich and famous because of these little electronic books? I hope so, but, realistically, No. I’ll get about $0.35 per sale. These puny prayers would have to go extremely viral for me to be able to live off their proceeds.
Residual proceeds could make up for that though. Because those little pictures of my ebooks are coded so anything else bought from Amazon from getting to them that way helps me out financially. They’re called affiliate links. For bringing buyers to them Amazon will reimburse me in a small way.
In plain English I get some money from Amazon without it costing you anything more to buy from them. So, if you’re planning on buying, say, a $30,000 watch from this selling giant and you connect to them from my link I get a legal kickback. You don’t even have to buy one of my blessings for me to benefit this way.
In other words, if you’d like to help a starving artist out you can go through my links to buy the stuff you were going to buy anyway and we both win. Sounds good to me anyway.
Back to the books themselves. I didn’t plan on putting these prayers into books when I first composed them. They were merely a weekly offering on the American Christian Fiction Writers children’s fiction email loop over the past two years.
Many of the people on that loop responded with how much these prayers touched them. I was amazed God was using me this way.
I know born-again believers will be brought closer to God by meditating on these prayers. I hope non-believers will be enticed to give their lives over to Jesus when they see the intimate relationship I have with the Creator of the universe.
When I realized I was accumulating about 100 of these prayers I decided to go the indy route to publish these into ebooks to see who else would be blessed. This will likely be more of a name building exercise than a wealth building one.
I don’t know. I plan on doing the best I can to promote them and leave the results up to God.
Along that vein if any of y’all want to review these on your blog feel free. I’m open to interviews about them, too.
One of the best ways all y’all can help me is to go back to Amazon and leave a review there for each book that blesses you. The more good reviews I can get the more Amazon will promote them on their end.
Together we can build God’s kingdom one little prayer book at a time.
I’ll see you later. Wade
