... You're yankin' my crank - how can Decisions not be selling like crazy? It's a popular genre, it's great writing, and it's entertaining as hell! This is your first sale of the month???

Are you carrying out any marketing strategies? Sending to review blogs, KND, etc?

He was tripping round the world Ronnell, just got back. That's more exciting than selling books.

So the BBOS is gone. Now that you're back you can start promoting. I'm with Ann--traveling is more exciting than book selling.

Hi, Ronnell.  Thanks for the kudos.  Really pleased that you so enjoyed it.  Yes, I have sent to review blogs (not enough, apparently, and waiting for others to get around to it).  Yes, I ran a KND advertisement (got one day's bump out of it, a few sales the next day, and then nothing afterward).

Right now, at the suggestion of another KBer, I'm preparing to rewrite my Product Description.  Time to give it a little ooomph and shorten it up, I guess.

Other than that I'm a bit hamstrung in that I want to start putting out at least 2,000 words a day on my current project.  My agent is asking about it so I simply have to get to work.

Thanks, L.C. and Valmore.  Ann, you're right about the excitement of travel, but I'm really burned out on it right now.  Thankfully, we have only two cruises planned for the next year and the first isn't until March.  Should be able to get some work done by then, and perhaps a little promotion.

Although it was kinda long, I was intrigued by your blurb.  You have another sale.

Why, thank you, Steven.  And thanks for the critique on the length.  Every little bit of criticism only helps me that much more, amigo.

I like that you're positive. I always get a kick out of a sale (I suppose this too shall pass) and figure I always will. I'm glad to hear your BBOS is gone. each month so far that I've been on amazon I hold my figurative breath wondering if that's it...if I've saturated my market (12 sales last month ;D).

I have 10 to go before I meet my goal this month of doubling November. I thought my aims were low compared to the other 1500 sales, 1000 sales, 100 sales....but I was content so long as I had at least a sale.

So roll on, baby. These threads are my addiction. I *need* to see everyone's numbers shift.

and I'm so glad you posted yours! May the elves bring you more sales before Christmas day! I'm running over to grab a sample in the hopes I get a kindle for xmas

Thank you so much, Thea.  Yeah . . . I'm a positive kinda guy with a penchant for self-deprecating humor.  Sure, it would be great selling as many as, say Vicki, but I know that takes a while and doesn't happen overnight.  Need to get some more of my works out there.

Best of luck on increasing your sales and making your goal for this month and future months.

Dude.  Started reading your book over lunch.  I'monly twentyminutes in and I'm already digging it.  I was rolling over the whole jethro/JeffRowe scene.   :D

Thank you so much, Steve.  I'm really glad you're enjoying it.  I did try to go heavy on the humor, as you can probably tell by now.

By the way, including your sale I've had three since late last night.  I'm a pretty happy camper right now, all things considered.
