Since I’m not updating my sales into Excel on a daily basis anymore, I can’t give a valid graph showing new sales anymore. But, here’s my total sales on “The Adventures of Whatley Tupper” after a little more than three months:
Just a few shy of 250. It’s actually over 250 if you include Amazon UK and Smashwords, but I’ll probably never actually get paid from either of those (especially Amazon UK–one has to break $100 USD to get a cheque mailed, separate from the Amazon US account, so that will probably take a few years). The last boost in sales was my 4 day 99 cent sale that garnered a little bit of attention at the Amazon Community Discussions. Since then, quite slow. I still can’t seem to get past the just-under-one-a-day-average. It’s been selling at that pace since the beginning of September, but that said, I’m also putting much less effort into promoting it. The sales I’m getting are pretty much finding themselves.
So, what’s that? 250 sales in 3 months. At this rate, I’ll break 1000 in the summer. That sounds pretty cool, actually. When I started this all in late August, I never thought that might be a possibility. Of course, when I look that that awfully flat end of the graph, it makes me think that I’ll have to wait a lot more than a year.
By the way, I have “The Year We Finally Solved Everything” KND sponsorship coming up on December 7th. Have I mentioned that before? I could go back into my posts. But I’m not going to. I’ll just blather on and repeat myself like an old man.
