Has anybody used this narration/translation service based on sales instead of upfront?

Do you think that publication of short stories leads to novel sales?

Writers' Cafe / Re: Selected for Book Bub Feature Deal
« on: September 18, 2020, 06:17:57 am »
This was my first experience with BookBub. The cost was not apparent to me at the onset. I wouldn't want anybody who does not envision a profit to invest in this project. I was hopeful but not optimistic that the cost could be lowered to pro bono since half of author proceeds are donated to a nonprofit agency to help abused and hopeless kids. Based on input from those who commented above, I concluded that there was too much cause for concern to risk money designated for the kids. It was an honor to have been selected for a feature deal that I hope in and of itself is another feather in the hat. I declined the offer yesterday and did not sense any bad vibes in the least.

"..I talked with the rest of my team as well as the editors, and we are able to change your deal for Rarity from the Hollow if you are able to lower your discount from $1.99 (the current discount) to $0.99. This would lead to a significant drop in the flat fee you would have to pay, from $1,310 to $754..." Anybody interested?

I posted this auto message to set the timeline if anybody is interested in paying the cost for a very large percentage of any profit. I can't afford to accept this deal myself. Thanks

My book was just approved for a BookBub feature deal. I can't afford to take advantage of it. If you would like to pay the cost, about $1K, you could take a large percentage of sales since I can't to it. Thanks

The regular price for the ebook is 3.99, discounted proposed to 1.99. What do you think?

The cost is $1069. It's hard to imagine RTI. What do you think?

Do you have to discount it 50%? That would involve D2D.

I figure that it would cost too much on BookBub to bid on Science Fiction.

My book was published by D2D. Does that affect advertising on Amazon? Do I need to sign up as a vendor? Thanks

IMO, books are more censored than movies or even commercials on TV. This topic reminds me of a couple of YA hits  although the first was R rated: "Your mother sucks cocks in Hell -- The Exorcist; "Penis breath -- E.T.
