Selling Stuff

Will Draw for Money 150 hI’d like to mention, because I haven’t lately, that I do sell prints and print rights to most of my work.

zazzle shop 200I sell custom-printed merchandise and prints through Zazzle. I just finished a large update, so that’s up-to-date now. I only bothered with posters for most of the latest stuff, but if you’d like to see any of my work on a mug or a T-shirt or anything else Zazzle offers, just let me know and I’ll be happy to set it up for you.

Dolores UmbridgeBree NewsomeThere are a few pieces I have which Zazzle and iStock won’t allow for various reasons. Like my Harry Potter illustration or my Bree Newsome tribute. If you’d like prints of one of those, or if you’d like to purchase anything directly from me, feel free to contact me and we can arrange that.
The third edition of my book, The Squishy, Stinky Diaper, is available through Amazon. Both in print and for the kindle. If you purchase a paperback, be sure it’s the third edition. The old one’s out of print now, but it’s still around. The illustrations are much better in the new one. Also, I don’t get any royalties on used book sales.

Also, as usual, I am accepting commissions and I’d love to work with you on your next project! smiley 15

Diaper Book Stats

Well, I haven’t looked in on my poor little diaper book in awhile. Last year I went to the SCBWI conference and showed an agent my book, but totally failed to remember exactly what my sales stats were when she asked me. That was embarrassing. So, this time I will have my numbers together.

What are my numbers? Well, I’m so glad you asked. First off, remember that this is a self-published book by a first-time, unknown author/illustrator and it was accompanied by little to no marketing. So, don’t expect big numbers.

It was first published in January 2010, though it didn’t sell much until I put it up for the kindle in May 2010.  To date I’ve sold 2,312 copies (43 paperbacks, 2269 ebooks) for a total of $1866.28 in royalties. The paperbacks are $9.75 and the ebook (both kindle and nook) are $1.99. The paperback is twice the price it should be, but that’s the best I can do with self-publishing. Sorry.

Would you like to buy a copy? Well, that would be great! You could get a paperback, a nook, or a kindle copy.

The Third Edition (left) with all new illustrations is now out.  The original edition (above) is now out of print. The new one is currently available on Amazon both in print and for kindle. It should be available at other online bookselllers soon and I’m working on getting it up on the nook. In the meantime, if you’d like a digital copy for your non-kindle eReader, contact me and I’ll sell you a PDF or epub version directly.
