August was my 11th month selling ebooks.
I sold 877 copies of 4 different titles. That’s a decrease of 27% from July.
My royalties also declined from $1,066.97 to $866.89.
My average sales per day were 38.9 in July and 28.3 in August.
If sales continue like they have for August, I should gross about $12,500 in 2011. Down a couple thousand from my estimates a couple months ago, but still quite nice.
Alas, I don’t like seeing those lines on the charts heading down. However, there is only one thing I can do, and that’s keep writing.
I’m working diligently on Where Magic Reigns, the sequel to The Elemental Odyssey. I'm on the 3rd draft now, should be on 4th this weekend. My plan is to have it published before December so I can take advantage of all the Harry Potter fans getting ereaders.
I’ll probably take December off from writing, as I’m doing a good job of burning myself out on Where Magic Reigns over the past couple months.
Starting in January, I’ll get going on the sequel to Dead Dwarves Don’t Dance. I’ll be very interested to see how the sequel to my bestselling book does in 2012.
