Paperbacks from Createspace, Discounts
These few paperbacks of mine have been published on Createspace and are also available more conveniently from Amazon and Barnes & Noble.You may save a few days by ordering from Amazon, but if you're not in a hurry, the author gets a slightly higher royalty for books ordered directly from Createspace.
Createspace is a Print-on-Demand service. If you order one copy, they print just that one copy for you, and then ship it to you. As the overheads are higher for producing a single copy, the books cost a couple of dollars more than mass-printed ones (in addition to which, Createspace makes a profit on each printing, following which Amazon or other distributors take their cut for selling the book); but for an author with small means, Print on Demand is better than having no paperback book available at all.
To order these books from Amazon:
I Will Not Go the F**k to Sleep (paperback) : http://www.amazon.com/Will-NOT-Go-Sleep/dp/1466480173/
(This and the next book: they are both anthologies of humor, with the Special Edition having additional material. They include some of my best political, social, and American satire--strangely enough, this is my bestselling Createspace book)
I Will Not Go the F**k to Sleep (Special edition): http://www.amazon.com/Will-Not-Go-Sleep-Special/dp/1477476849/
Eaten by the Japanese (latest edition): http://www.amazon.com/Eaten-Japanese-Memoir-Indian-Prisoner/dp/1480034053/
(A World War II POW story, of my father's captivity and release; veterans love it; fathers love it. The British seem to love this book. It has been a constant seller, and the language is very accessible and human.)
