Riches vs. Fame: An analysis

Posted by:

In a recent blog article by Stephen Leather, who is leading the sales on Amazon UK Kindle with his title Once Bitten, he shows his sales numbers and talks a bit about the number of sales he has received.  US sales are not quite as high, but I’m sure that he will start accumulating them with the $0.99 price tag.

I also must first disclose that Stephen and I had a rather rough first conversation in which I ...

Sales Approaching 300, over 200 sold in December

Posted by:

I just wanted to make a post regarding sales for December, and, of course, I wanted to thank everyone who has purchased.  I certainly hope you enjoy the book!

This little hobby of mine is becoming a great source of additional income, it would seem.  I’m far off from making this a full-time job, of course, but the little extra boost to my income should help ease the tension at home and pay a few bills.  That’s all I really expected ...

Today’s News: Amazon sales and more

Posted by:

I didn’t want to write three separate blogs for today’s happenings, so I went ahead and combined them all into one for today’s update.  First, I’ve purchased the domain reviewswap.com (which is not up yet in any form), and I will begin working on some custom software to allow independent authors the ability to read each others’ books, post reviews to the website, and agree to post the reviews to Amazon, as well.  This won’t just be an automatic 5-star ...

Kickstarter Project Success and Other News

Posted by:

The Kickstarter Project has succeeded.  Thanks to all the pledges and support over these long weeks!  There were a couple of times in the project that I didn’t think we were going to make it, but I’m so glad that we did!  It reached the goal, so it’s time for a little saving and scrimping on my end to save up the rest for the advertising!

All of the pledges should be receiving the electronic version of the ...

The Dying Times is to be an Audiobook and more

Posted by:

Everyone calm down!  I’m not reading it myself, so you won’t have to hear my voice on there!  Now, let us continue…

Technology is a wonderful thing.  By using expensive advanced software, The Dying Times will be released in audiobook format for your enjoyment.  The first sample is available for those who are interested on The Dying Times official page.  Of all the voices available, I decided on the younger British female voice; it’s calm, relaxing, ...

Kindle Sales: 10k-15k on Amazon Ranking

Posted by:

As a follow-up to this article, I wanted to briefly post this evening that sales on the Amazon Kindle edition of the book are teetering around the 10,000-15,000 sales rank mark.  It seems to have stabilized right around this point, and that will be a good starting point for the advertising campaigns that begin this month and in January.  I am very excited!

The Kickstarter project ends on December 10th, so that funding should help dramatically with ...

Newsletter to Provide Discounts, Giveaways.

I have added a newsletter signup to the left sidebar for those interested.  Basically, this will serve as a medium by which fans of the books can opt-in to receive updates and news about releases, special discount coupon codes, giveaways, and the free survivor short stories as soon as they are released.  My commitment against spam remains as strong as it has ever been: your information will not be sold, traded, or given away to third parties.

The newsletters will be posted (in ...

The Dying Times Runs for a Month

Posted by:

The Dying Times: Nadene’s Story has been out for a month (as of yesterday).  My, my, does time fly!  This article is to look at the sales of the book with little to no advertising whatsoever.  With the Kickstarter project 7 days out from fulfillment, we will see some real advertising effort in January and beyond, but this article focuses on the data we do have based solely on publicity and social networking efforts.  To make it even better, I’ve ...

Another 5-star Review from Midwest Book Review

Posted by:

I would like to thank Midwest Book Review for now completing TWO separate reviews of the book.  This one is a bit shorter, but a good one, nonetheless!

It’s not easy facing the teen years. Especially during a Zombie Apocalypse. “The Dying Times: Nadene’s Story” tells of the rise of the living dead in America and Apocalypse that seems to come with it. A thirteen year old girl, Nadene, possesses a special talent that may be vital ...

Survivor Short Stories Coming Soon

Posted by:

I have decided to begin writing (when time permits) a series of short stories about tertiary characters found in the Survivor Chronicles.  Ever wonder what happened to Harvey from Harvey’s Diner in Grand Bay?  The two people in the dump truck at the airfield?  I have always wondered myself what happened to the characters who were not the main focus of the story, and this is a medium by which I can explore the lives of those who were left ...
