DEAD DWARVES, DIRTY DEEDS
I’ve sold 8 copies since publishing last Thursday, minus one that was refunded, for a total of 7. One sale was my own, so I’ve had 6 real sales. That’s almost 1 a day. I’m pleased with that.
What’s interesting is that I got all the way down to #8627 on the Amazon Kindle Best Seller rankings (that’s out of 700,000). Looks like you don’t need many sales to get close to the top 1%.
I’m also up to #34 in the Books>Science Fiction & Fantasy>Science Fiction>Anthologies category.
I haven’t spent any money on advertising or marketing. I’ve only posted on Kindle Boards and JA Konrath’s blog.
So, all in all, I’m pretty pleased with my first week’s results. If I can get to 30 sales in the first month, that’ll be sweet.
DEAD DWARVED DON’T DANCE
I’ve put in almost 6 hours of cleanup writing this week. I’m now 72% ready for handing off to editing. I’ll have to cram a bunch of work in this weekend to be ready for Monday’s handoff to Joel my editor. I just went through one of the major action sequences in the book and still enjoy it. That’s always good.
