Another option did not get the best of write-ups online, at least from a couple of sources, but they do have a significant presence in the publishing field of interest. I only need someone to print the books as and when required, which, given the stir on the Internet and elsewhere that the Lorelei Legend connection is likely to cause, should be a reasonable number, probably to put it mildly.
As noted above, Loykey and Lillibit sold quite a large number of their books, in excess of six thousand, without going through Amazon. Arima say they will pay £3-30 per book in royalties, if sold through them, 20% less if sold through a third party, like Amazon, which comes out at £2-63 per book. Even on a basis of £2-50 per book and the aforementioned sales rate, that works out at £15,000 per year. The non-book income should be considerably more, given the views of a number of high level business people along with those involved in film and printed media, who I met. I have spoken to several people at local business events about potential links for mutual benefit but there is nothing I can do until the story of Lorelei and I is in the public domain.
Hopefully, “Remembering Lorelei” would do even better than suggested above. I am not too bothered by which route it goes public, as long as it does, preferably sooner rather than later.
Comments will only be accepted if they are presented as a contribution to mature discussion and are from people who use their own names with a link whereby that is easily verified, as well as, ideally, their background, qualifications, experience, etc., essentially, total clarity for all readers of a comment as to precisely who is making it.
No comments will be accepted that contain libellous comments, or those of an abusive nature, or are “off topic”, at least seriously so. Constructive criticism is one thing, juvenile name calling and similar is quite another.
