New book out soon & New trip to Latvia planned

“When are you returning to Latvia?”
“When will you release a new book?”

Asked these questions a lot and normally I reply “soon” and “not soon enough” πŸ™‚

New trip to Latvia planned

When it comes to trips I try to plan those in a bit of time ahead, as I’ve got a lot of other obligations. So far this year I’ve had one week in Gran Canaria together with wife and Sinba.
I have not edited many photos from that trip yet as I published soon after that trip a book of the trips that Sinba had to Norway in 2015. Later this year I hope to release “Adventures of Sinba: Gran Canaria” πŸ™‚

I have a new trip planned to Latvia, and this time I hopefully will be there when it’s a bit warm. I’ve been there Spring, Fall and Winter, so now it’s time to visit it during the Summer πŸ™‚
There is so far only only on my list, but this one demanded a bit of attention to details. I’ll keep the details to myself for a bit longer, but will only say it involves Sinba and that it will be new for both of us and that it will be in August.

 

New book out soon

My last trip to Latvia was in November and from that trip I’ve published two books (Candice & Julia Zu) , I’m now working on the third from that trip: Bree Haze
I aim to have this one ready soon, but I’m so easily distracted …. There are also lots of paperbacks versions to publish, there seem to be a marked for them, especially in Japan.

 Last year I almost had no shoots during the summer in Norway as the weather was really bad. I’ve got new locations I’d like to try, but never did get a chance last year to try. I do hope for better luck this summer.

“Why does this book cost so much more than that previous book?”

Here is a question I’ve been asked a few times, so I thought I’d answer that.
The answer is really simple, the larger the filesize of an ebook is or the number of pages a printed book is the more it cuts into what I’m left with.

There are some thresholds that I have to be within. For a printed book there is a base cost of printing and this increases with the number of pages.
For ebooks it works the same way, the larger the filesize of the ebook is the more Amazon deducts from what they pay out.

My newest paperback is 92 pages, the first I gave out was 38 pages. That should explain it?


 
I try to set the price of the books so that I earnings are more of less about the same amount of money from each book. I’m not increasing price on my books due to I’m selling more, but for the simple reason the last few books I’ve published have contained more material.

My newest book, the first one of 2017, is from the trips Sinba had to Norway in 2015

The Adventures of Sinba: Norway

Die Abenteuer von Sinba: Norwegen

And if anyone are curious if the tittle indicates that this will be a series, then yes πŸ™‚
I have plans for at least 2 more. Later this year I hope to have one from our trip to Gran Canaria

Year in review – 2016

Year in review – 2016

When this year started I had a few ideas what I’d like to do, but I can’t recall anything other than “I want to do more” as a goal.
I did know and had started to plan for my trip to Ukraine, but up until I actually got there in February I did have this “what on earth have I got myself into“-feeling, which was soon replaced with “oh, man this is awesome“-feeling. Can read more about my trip here. I must admit that I’ve been a terrible student afterwards, but I do aim try to learn more as I feel an absolute pure joy when I manage to read a word here and there online, names of followers or descriptions on Instagram, Flickr and random images and text I spot online.

One very clear goal I had for 2016 was to make a printed book from my first 3 years of doing portraits and my work with some amazing models in and from Latvia.
What I didn’t foresee was that this actually turned into becoming my thing. I am currently working on my 10th book this year. Most of these book are so far ebooks only, but I hope to make them available as print as well.

While I was away in Riga this November the local bi-yearly cabaret did their shows. This year I really missed a great opportunity and honour: they did a skit where I, as a photographer, was parodied. Was told that it was filmed, so would like to see that.

My published work 2016

Most of these have been translated into German

2016 was a year I worked a lot with photography, but I shot far less than I’ve have done in years. There were two reasons for this, first reasons was the terrible weather we had this summer. The second reason for my seemingly lower activity was that I was editing… a lot. My hardcover book, Naked Latvia, took a lot of work, and when that was done I started on next book project and then next book project… oh. and just in case anyone wonders what is a low number of shots for a year: 14 000.

2017

I really enjoy publishing books and I have plans on continuing doing so in 2017. I want to travel at least as much as I did in 2016, hope to get a chance to travel more, not less. First off is a trip to Gran Canaria with my wife and my muse: Sinba. This will be a combination of vacation and work. After this there are some additional travel plans, but tickets haven’t been bought yet and no date set. I do hope that 2017 will come with a few nice surprises just like 2016 did for me.

“I will need a bookshelf for my published books”

I just got notification from Amazon that my own copy of my first paperback is on it’s way.

“I will need a bookshelf for my published books”

Now there is a thought I’d never thought I’d think nor say out loud..

If I’m happy with the print quality I will also make all my other ebooks available as a paperback. With this new development I’m also considering Naked Latvia, my hardcover book. Quite a lot of people have expressed interest in that book, but that the price was too high. I can fully understand that point of view, and if the quality is something I can live with I will make a more affordable version available.

The first few sales of the book was in Japan. Looks like I’ll be hunting for a Japanese translator.

Sexy Models: Foxy Cherry: Uncensored sensual photos

Foxy Cherry is now available as a paperback

Change of workflow

My workflow will change, if I find the quality to my liking, so that I will publish the physical books first then ebook afterwards. The reason for this that I then can make the ebook free of charge for those that have bought a physical copy. Personally I don’t like the idea to pay for an ebook or for an mp3 when I have the physical item already in my house…. So when I’m allowed to make it available for free I will do that πŸ™‚

“how many books have you sold?”

“How many books have you sold?”

I get this question all the time….

Amazon released the ebook of Naked Latvia one month ago today.
Prior to this I had released 2 shorter ebooks, and the attention those got were naturally minor.

Everything changed with the release of Naked Latvia. On the the slow days I still make more in a day than I did a whole month before this ebook.
I’ve published 4 additional ebooks from my catalogue and have had those translated to other languages, where German seems to be the most pupular.
All in all I currently have 14 ebooks for sale and I intend to publish more in the future.

 

how many books have you sold?

Figure in red is when people have bought any of my ebooks. Figure in blue (KENP) is for those who reads any of my ebooks for “free” on a Kindle Unlimited subscription I’m compensated for each page read for the first time, much like artists get paid for having music on Spotify.

 

42

I’ve sold 42 books all in all. Most of those have been within the last month, but most income comes from the 20.000+ pages that Kindle Unlimited subscribers have contributed.
These sales are not earth shattering, but, and this is the magic of publishing on Amazon, the books never stop being available. In theory an ebook on Amazon never have to become unavailable, so if it takes a year to cover the cost of models, makeup artists, studio etc, all sales after that is profit.
