My sci-fi short story, "Life Sentence" is out and available in various online book stores. https://books2read.com/b/lifesentence
@jwynia Hey! Curious: I don’t know anyone selling short fiction online. How is that working out for you?
@markmcelroy It's been in part a way to get familiar with the self-pub ecosystem. I sold 55 copies in the first few weeks that story's been out there. Which has been more than most expected when they heard I was going to try.
@jwynia Man, that’s great! I’d love to hear more about the experience sometime — things you liked, didn’t like, etc. Do you mind sharing how much of the cover price goes directly to you? (If I ask things that are too personal, please just say, “Whoa, man, none of your business.”)
@markmcelroy Yeah, it's clear that the indie world has radically changed publishing in the last few years. I added a "publishing arm" to my existing software consulting business for this venture into publishing fiction.
