Random thoughts, inconsistent posting
|WOW, Its been a long time since I wrote anything here.
The fall turned into a working machine, working two jobs. The Christmas concert then Easter and here we are April First.
I will be going to MN to take care of my daughter while she recovers from knee surgery. Two weeks of crocheting, eating, me writing, her knitting, eating watching movies and did I say eating? We both love to cook and eat.
Just to recap this last year a bit. Jan 2015 I had my novel published. It went very well that first quarter I sold 99 ebooks and 30 paperbacks. ( I purchased 150 of my own, not counted in their numbers, for sale).
The second Quarter ebook sales were at 63 and my paperback sales were about 75. The last half of the year sales were only at 29 ebooks and I've sold about 25 more paperbacks to date. So a total of 191 ebooks and about 125 paperbacks give or take a few. I haven't counted those left in the box.
My publisher just sent me an email that he met with other indi publishers and they calculated I had 35% higher sales than most of their authors had the first year. Now I have to find ways to get the word out to more book clubs and book stores to order my book.
I'm working almost full time (just under the FT limit) at one job and a few hours now and then when needed at the other job. I spend more at Christopher & Banks then I make.
Since I've been rewriting my very first completed novel and reading another authors book for review, I haven't had time to be on WDC much. Since its so slow at work, I'm actually doing this at work. I have only had 2 customers in the store in the last hour. The mall is pretty dead today. The weather is so nice I think many are heading out of town for the weekend.
I hope to have time to post more when I'm in MN.
