So it’s frankly a real pain to try and figure out how well I did on Amazon in January; my monthly update will wait a few more days until they release the reports. However, I can say with some confidence that January was very, very close to December, and that was my best month ever in terms of royalties. February has started out more slowly, though still nothing to sneeze at.
Most significantly, however, I am thrilled to report that I sold 35 copies of the romance novel in January, and I’ve continued to see around one a day since then as well. The followup should be finished in a week, so barring major misfortune I should have my second novel up for sale by March. The two are standalone novels although they share the same location and some minor characters, so I’ll be selling them as part of a series (which eventually will have 4 books). I’ll be extremely curious to see how the release of the second book—not to mention pushing them as books in a series—will affect sales.
More to come!
