Numbers torture me
I just checked KDP unit sales and I sold nine books yesterday. Four in the U.S. and five in the U.K. Three months ago, I’d be thrilled at those numbers, but after the last two months of relatively heavy sales, these seem kind of low. Now, my depression will set in until those numbers get back up into the twenties. Lately, I’ve noticed a building obsession with checking my sales throughout the day. Having the ability to see books downloaded in real time is an amazing tool for keeping track but it can also drive you freaking crazy. In the pre-electronic age, authors never knew what the sales of their books were until the quarter was up. Having that “ignorant bliss” kept the steam rolling, and usually by the time you got the sales figures you’d be well on your way into your next project. This obsessive checking I do causes my mood to fluctuate greatly throughout the day. A few sales in the morning and I’m off to a wonderful breakfast. No sales at night, and I go into a depressive fear-sleep that I will never have another sale again. And then morning comes and I see a few sales and everything is okay again, for a while. Sometimes, I wish there was a setting where I could only see my sales figures once a week. I don’t have the will power to halt this addiction myself.
As far as the release of DEGENERATES this weekend, I guess we’ll see how it went on Monday. I’ve posted on most of my forums and started a few threads about the story. I also booked sponsorship on Kindle Nation Daily for the end of next month. For anyone who writes for a younger audience, KND is giving a full week on the front page of its new site for half the price of a normal sponsorship. I bought one for SILENT INVASION for the week of April 6th, figuring with Easter, there will be a lot of kids out of school and surfing the net. We’ll see how that goes.
This is my blog, comments and new followers always appreciated! :)
This is the story of a man whose name or place of origin is purposely never revealed, to avoid stereotyping. This man could be you or I given the right situation.
This is the moving story of one mans adventures in the private world of a vagabond as he takes to the roads, to become a wandering vagrant. A situation that is currently taking place on an ever increasing scale in our present day times, all across the world.
This is the story of one man, who with his trusty tent embarks on a journey of self discovery to find a new beginning, a journey that starts with a self imposed solitude and one that proves to be full of adventure as he explores his new beginning. A story of factual locations and information intermixed with fictitious events.
This is about that lonely sad figure you may see sitting in a shop doorway, or on a park bench and either ignore or wonder. How did you get in such a state?
But I have turned a negative into a positive as I ask you to join me as we follow his amazing journey in and around the beautiful New Forest in the UK. The people he meets and helps and those that help him in return, proving that there is always hope, love and friendship, even on the open road.
A must read for those with PTSD or survivors of PTSD-- http://bit.ly/BtWIrvw.
Just a quick post to announce that I’ve put all my books up for Smashwords read an ebook a day promotion. Since I’ve been spending almost all of my time promoting Kindle and Amazon, this opens up a whole new readership with Nook and many other ereader devices. I’ve got a great author site where you can get my books on these devices for 25% off during this week! Just use the coupon posted on the site.
I’m going to be spending quite a bit of energy promoting for the Nook. Having done next to zilch so far, I was surprised to see more than a hundred dollars in royalties in my Smashwords account and I’ve gotten four dollars more since last week. I see potential here. Big potential.
