Blu Phi’er’s inflated costs

Blu Phi’er informed my friend that it cost him $149. to get the book out through Lightning Source.

Not hardly.

The initial digital set up costs $75. The initial proof copy costs $30.

Tell me, Mr. Bernoudy,

The chair leg of truth wants to know.

When did 75 plus 30 come to equal 149?

    I’m expecting some stupid comment about a reader’s fee (for the product for which they already take 70% of the profits, naturally… ) or that great catch-all for irregularities: ‘administration costs’.

    the problem with that is that on his sales report he states that Lightning Source charged him $149. Everything else on the report accounts for the other expenses. But all of the numbers appear questionable to me.

    75 + 30 = 7530.00. Looks like he was getting a bargain!

    Wait, I did it wrong. 5 + 0 =50. 70+30=100 Therefore, he’s giving people a $1 discount.

    Can you tell I have an accountant friend who works in Hollywood?
