The nonfiction book, Watching Their Dance: Three Sisters, a Genetic Disease and Marrying into a Family At Risk for Huntington’s, is a Huntington’s disease fundraising/HD awareness project, my passion, which I began seven (7) years ago. The book was published in April 2017 and I was thrilled to hold a book in my hand a begin selling it around the world.
The book can be purchased on many websites and the royalties I receive are different for each:
On my Author website @ http://www.theresecrutchermarin.com a page exists to purchase the book, using PayPal. A hard book is $16.99, and an ePub file is $6.99, that can be read on every device but Kindle.
When you purchase on my website, my profit is $7.00 per hard book, and $5.00 per ePub. These dollars are what I donate to HDSA and other HD organizations worldwide.
On Amazon.com, https://www.amazon.com/ the royalty I receive on the sale of a hard book is $5.27. Amazon prints on demand, handles and ships it, collects the tax if appropriate and keeps a certain % for their cut.
When I sell a book on Amazon Kindle, the price is $8.99 and the royalty I receive is $6.29 per file purchased. To date, I’ve sold approximately 800 Kindle’s.
Watching Their Dance: Three Sisters, a Genetic Disease and Marrying into a Family At Risk for Huntington’s, a memoir/nonfiction book, is an inspirational love story, chronicled over 38 years, showing how John being at risk for HD impacted our life; how I coped and the tools I incorporated into my life to live fully everyday.
When you purchase the book, you are making a donation to help in the fight against Huntington’s disease. Please go to Therese’s website: http://www.theresecrutchermarin.com and Amazon B&N Kindle Kobo Nook
