Book Marketing and Promotion

Posted by:

I’ve been asked from time to time how to get a book out there and get it going, so I decided to make a post about it instead of telling everyone individually. I have a book marketing eBook on Amazon (for $0.99) and it’s on Smashwords (for free), so you can check it out if you want to learn some extra tips on marketing just to Amazon’s crowd. This is more of a general book marketing and promotion post to ...

The Dying Times has cleared 1000 sales

Posted by:

The Dying Times has cleared the 1000 sales mark in the first 3 months it has been out.  Sales on other titles add to the numbers and remain steady, as well.

It would only be proper to thank the readers who have made this possible.  Without them, my material wouldn’t be read and would remain in obscurity.  I appreciate all of the readers who have given me a chance so far, and I hope many more will give The Survivor Chronicles ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...
