The anthology won't be in KU, will it?
No. Wide.

One thing I've noticed with these anthologies is that the cliffs aren't anywhere near as dramatic as with novels. At one month the Guardian dropped from 10-15 a day to 5-10 a day. At six months and a year, the other two are still selling several a day, with little spikes into double figures, even when not being actively promoted.

What all advertising are you doing for it?

The last big thing for The Guardian was a Book Barbarian on 5 January. The initial results of that were, tbh, rather disappointing, but it is possible the tail has spread. I've had much better luck with them on novels.
There is an ongoing trickle of AMS advertising, but their reporting is alleged to be so unreliable I have little idea how effective it is.

Of course, whenever any of the three anthologies are pushed, there is a resulting swell on sales of the other two.
I quite often put The Newcomer into Instafreebie promos, and the autoresponder sequence the subscribers then get suggests the other two anthologies after a few weeks.

Just thought I'd update everyone with the round sales figures for the previous three anthologies in this series. About 8% of sales have been paperbacks.
The Newcomer - 13 months - 2800 (+1900 giveaways)
The Officer - 7 months - 2000
The Guardian - 1 month - 700

Thanks to everyone who's already submitted a story for The Renegade. I won't make any decisions until after the deadline, but I'm liking what I've read so far.

I had planned on submitting a story for this, but now it looks like it probably won't happen.  Life has been getting in the way.   :(

Maybe next time.

Well, the story I was planning to submit decided that it wanted to be a novella instead, so I guess I'll sit this one out.

Oooh, this theme could work for me!

The anthology won't be in KU, will it?
