I've officially moved into the triple digits now with my book sales and they are continuing to climb! Thank you! The past few weeks have been pretty darn good both in the North American sales markets as well as the UK!
I firmly believed something that has helped increased my sales exponentially was my decision to change both the book cover and the blurb. Both of those things were rushed in the beginning of the process and one lesson I learned was that those are both things that need to be given plenty of time and consideration. Publishing my first book and doing everything on my own since it was written has definitely been a learning process.
While I am going to keep this short and sweet I would like to thank a few people who have helped me find the success that has started (and hopefully continues) to come my way.
Thanks to all the authors and illustrators over at The Literary Underground for their ongoing support and input. They are an extremely talented group of people who have built this amazing system of support for their fellow authors. Their creativity and enthusiasm have definitely helped to boost my own. Do yourself a favor and check out the books listed in the Lit-U Store because there are some amazingly entertaining reads there! If you like the freebie kind of fun you should head on over to their sister endeavor and play around with the choose your own adventure stories posted on CHOOSE OR DIE! I promise, you will be entertained!
I would also like to thank my author friends, Patria Dunn-Rowe (who can be found here at Moonlit Dreams) and J.A. Paul. They are both amazing writers, and always there when I need a bit of advice or just to vent my frustrations with writer's block, book covers, formatting, or website woes! :D You guys are awesome!
Kindleboards, Twitter, Facebook - without these things, Indie Authors could never make a go of it on their own the way they can today! So, thank you technology and social networking!
Thank you to my readers who have gotten Birthrights and the Bonus Edition sales into the hundreds! I'll be seeing you again in the thousands! Until then, check out some of the reviews here at Moonlit Dreams. There are a lot of amazing books out there today, not all of them come from publishing houses. Some of them come straight from the heart. I try to blend a little of both worlds here, so there's always something for everyone.
