I have heard of the summer slump in regards to books but I didn’t really believe it until I looked at my numbers for last month. I can honestly say that August hasn’t been my month and it didn’t help that for most of the month I was ill so I couldn’t update here or on my Twitter or Facebook. It might seem like I am complaining but I’m not; I am very grateful for every one of my sales that I have gotten over the past three months. I can’t thank you all enough!
As it is a new month, I’ve decided to set a new price for “Forgotten” and you can check out the details on my site which can be found here. I also should mention that “Forgotten” is going free this Thursday 6th September for one day only.
I wish I could give everyone an update on the progress of “Masquerade” (ITS, Book Two), or even the status of when “Forgotten” may be in print, but alas all I can say is that I am working on both projects (and a few others beside) and for everyone to watch this space.
Anyway, on to the numbers… when I decided to post my stats I made a promise that I would post them no matter what the numbers may be. I hope that someone finds these monthly stats posts useful.
Amazon US – 21
Amazon UK – 4
Total – 25
Again, I want to say I am grateful for every sale as it all adds up. I hope that in September that I will be able to promote my book more and maybe the upcoming free day will give it a bit of a boost.
On a more cheerier note my overall total of books sold (in just under three months) – 303 (40 borrows)
Before I sign off on this post I just want to recommend a website that I came across recently called NovelScribe which is aimed at both readers and authors. I hope that it becomes as popular as Fantastic Fiction as that is one of my favourite book listing websites, and NovelScribe looks like it has the potential to be just as good.
