Back in April, I shared how much I spent to edit/produce/publish Destiny Gift.

I didn’t do it with Breaking the Reins, and now it’s time for Soul Oath and Cup of Life. So here is a break down:

Giftcard given during blog tour = $25
Createspace proof copy = $10
Paperbacks for giveaways (15 + shipping) = $95.25
