I added myself but I messed up & included paperback copies (because my sales spreadsheet does), so I need to knock 7 off my total.  I also need to check whether links work when they are typed into the 'notes' section.  Unfortunately, I can't find my profile!  I'm not sure whether there's a delay in it going live, or whether there was a problem and I need to enter it again.  Anyone know?   :)

Edited to add:  I think I must have clicked the wrong thing before.  I just added the correct data in since there was no way to amend what I put in before & I appeared on the list straight away.  Shame I can't include the paperbacks - I'm going to have to amend my spreadsheets now to keep track of e-book specific sales.  Bleugh!   :P

Great idea - it has made me count up my sales - I only usually count them for about a year at a time - and I've realised I have reached a significant milestone without even knowing about it until now.

I like this idea. As Hugh Howey said, smaller milestones would be nice for us beginners. What about 100, 500, 1000, etc.?

We have some small publishers who are members of KB, and we now have a way of adding your authors to the Authors page.

Near the top of the Authors Page (http://kboards.com/authors), there is now a "Publisher" link. That link will take you to a page that lets you add authors.

Some notes:

  There's no limit to the number of authors you can add. Because the authors are (presumably) not KB members, we can't display an avatar for them, so I've added a field that lets you provide a URL for the author's profile picture.

  Once an author is added, no one but the publisher who added it can update the info for that author. It's controlled through our forum sign-in security.

  Please let me know any difficulties with it or feedback on it. Thanks.

I don't have an official figure yet, but I'm throwing a comment in here to remind me come back! I think I've sold somewhere between 20 and 30 since the end of April, but I'll add actual figures when I know them, rather than making it up based on rumours. Brilliant feature nonetheless.

Harv, could you increase the number of characters permitted in the genre field, please?

Yes - right now it's 100 characters. How much longer should it be? 250?

Umm, maybe not that big. I only need eight more characters to spell out the word grownups and to end the sentence with a period.

Okay, done. It's a VARCHAR field anyway, so I set it to 250 to allow lots of room.

Sorry if this is a stupid question but I can't seem to find the answer, although I haven't read all 12 pages of the thread. Can you include Smashwords sales? I have but I can take them out if I did the wrong thing.

Thanks.
