Creator Sky Price Drop!

I decided to lower the price of the Creator Sky ebook to $2.99. It looks like the price changed on Amazon, but the other marketplaces will likely take more time to update. The print price will have to stay as-is due to the high cost of print-on-demand services.

Started donating books to Little Free Libraries

As I mentioned in a previous post, I was thinking of distributing a decent number of Creator Sky copies through the local Little Free Library system. I had ordered 50 copies that I still have around half left. They have two errors in the interior, but are solid quality copies otherwise.
