My Latest Book

Printer-Friendly Format

Maybe you haven't noticed but my latest book has been added to the list of my RVing books shown on the right side of the Home page of this website.

While I'm telling you about my latest book, let me tell you a little about selling books on Amazon. You may notice that the price of the eBook version of this book is only $2.99. My other eBooks are priced at $3.99. There's a reason for this.

This book is more of a book that someone would read for enjoyment like they would a novel. Tests have shown that "How-to" books sell just as well at $3.99 as they do at $2.99, but entertainment type eBooks (such as novels) sell a lot better at $2.99. I have tested this (and other people have too) and the number of How-to eBooks sold each month is the same whether the price is $2.99 or $3.99.

That's not the case for eBooks that are bought for entertainment. I guess that makes sense. If there is a topic that you want to learn about, an extra dollar in the price is not going to keep you from buying the book. If you're buying a book for entertainment, there are millions of eBooks available for $2.99, so why pay more?

You might be thinking that if lowering the price of entertainment type books increases the sales, why not go to $1.99 or even $0.99. There's a good reason not to do this. Amazon pays a commission of 70% of the sales price for eBooks priced between $2.99 and $9.99. So when an eBook is priced at $2.99, I get $2.10 for the sale, but when it's priced at $1.99, they only pay a 30% commission. I would only get $0.60 for the sale if the book was priced at $1.99.

Description of the Book

If you've been RVing for any length of time, I'm sure you've seen a lot of weird and funny things for yourself. You may have even seen some of the things I've included in this book, but I bet you haven't seen anything as funny as #4 or #7.

When I first started living the full-time RVing life, a lot of things seemed weird. Now after four years of living full time on the road, I don't run across nearly as many things that I call weird.

I haven't seen Big Foot yet, but I keep my camera handy just in case. Who knows, maybe I will run across Big Foot or a Martian one of these days. Until I do, there are still plenty of weird things to keep me entertained and amazed.

The title of this book promises 21 weird and funny things I've seen while RVing, but I've included a lot more than that. It's just that 34 or 52 weird and funny things didn't sound like a good book title.

As the cover implies, this is not a serious book, but the stories are true.

If you're looking for a collection of light-hearted (but true) stories about funny and weird things that have happened to people who are living the RVing lifestyle, I think you will enjoy this book.

If you've had a weird or funny experience while RVing, let me know and I will include it in the next version of the book.

Bottom line: If I've convinced you to buy the book, you can find it on Amazon at this link:

And by the way, if you buy the book, by all means, leave me a review. Reviews for new books are very much appreciated and extremely valuable when it comes to helping sales.
