The other day, Karol Gajda sent me an email saying that I ought to sell Life Nomadic for $2.99, and that if I did, the volume would make up for the lower sale price. Worth a try, right?
So, for a while at least, the Kindle version of Life Nomadic is $2.99 on Amazon. If you take at least one trip a year, the money-saving tips alone will pay for the book many times over. Of course, there's a lot more to the book than that, evidenced by the emails I get all the time from people saying the book changed their lives.
Speaking of which, if you have read Life Nomadic, PLEASE leave a review on Amazon. This helps Amazon circulate it in its recommendations engine, which helps me get sales.
The link for reviewing or purchasing is here.
If you've bought any of my products: thank you. Most of my income comes from those sales.
Could you bring http://tynan.net/currentgear back online? It seems to have gone missing, but is still in the book.
Hey Tynan, I posted on your "how to write a book in 48 hours thread" a long time ago, and thought I'd share this. I'm an audiobook junkie, so I naturally thought it would be cool to have an audiobook done of my own someday. Although I still don't have the proper book written for that format, I found this link through amazon ...http://www.acx.com/help/audiobook-publishers/200679720
... it helps find a narrator/producer and has a revenue sharing model for all concerned, low minimum sale pricing for smaller books, and it's an amazon company too. I'd love to HEAR Life Nomadic onaudible.com
someday; just something more to consider :) -- Webb M.
I bought this and read it over the weekend. It's an excellent read for someone considering packing up and hitting the road for a new travelling lifestyle. I can't say that I agreed with everything he suggested (but that's OK of course!) - but I found it very motivating and the kick in the butt that I needed to start seriously planning my upcoming lifestyle change.
I had hardly read the first sentences of this article when I typed over to Amazon and bought this gem! Yeah!!!
Hey Tynan. I bought Life Nomadic back in 2009 I think... it's been a while. Has any of the information changed or is it the same?
Kndle Price: $5.74 includes VAT
But I'm from Poland, so maybe that's the problem. Nevertheless, gonna buy it this week :].
Long version: Todd and I used to send each other an email every day with a list of two or three tasks that we absolutely had to get done that day. Then, at the end of the day, we'd check in to see if the tasks actually got done.
The problem with that was that sometimes we'd forget what we said we'd do, so we'd have to dig through the sent box on our phones, and there was no real historical tracking.
It's been almost six months since I published The Motivation Hacker, my book on how to get yourself to want to do what you always wanted to want to do. Here's what surprised me.
Sales (update: First Year Book sales)
I use a site called PredictionBook to compare my private guesses to reality for things like this. It helps me be less overconfident. I took a brutal calibration beating on my predictions for how many copies I'd sell in the first six months:
Here's how many I actually sold:
