One of the great benefit of being an indie author is you get 7 to 10 times the royalties compared to classic edition contract (with your books on shelves). Of course, the drawback is you’ll probably sell 7 to 10 times less compared to the other case. Even if your book is made from your blood and tears and good quality. Unless you have a solid marketing plan, a lot of friends with even more friends and – let’s be honest – a bit of luck. I’ve done my best to have an interesting book, I’ll try to communicate and sell it the best I can during the next weeks until its release.

One of the reason I choose to go indie with Sol Sunburst was because with the 70% royalties on every sales: I would have a better room for manoeuver with the expected income (meaning, more manoeuver than with a classic contract). Including helping bigger causes.

As you already know if you have read the book presentation or some other articles about its contents, ecology and animal protection take a huge part in the plot and background. The book already tries to make the reader sensibilize to these causes, but as a individual I always believe that one can make a change, even with a small contribution.

Due to my personal belief, and because it seems the right thing to do regarding Sol Sunburst and the actual state of the planet, I have decided that a small percentage of the revenues I would make on Sol Sunburst would be donate to the WWF.

I will be able to do so once the various investments I’ve done to self-published this ebook will have been refunded (like the English translation), which will happen at some point between 1000 and 1500 sold copies. After that, anyone who would buy Sol Sunburst will contribute to the annual donations I will make to the WWF. It may be only 10 €, but it still be something for protecting pandas and tigers. Of course, I hope word will spread and that in December I can announce on this blog much much bigger donation to the WWF, thanks to the sales of Sol Sunburst!

So don’t forget, Sol Sunburst is out on the 6th May! It may not change the world, but as a Diamond Dogs member would say: “it’s worth trying to”
