Big Al's Books & Pals 2014 Readers' Choice Awards: Young Adult Nominee

A ruthless murder and a stolen shipment of gold.

At school, sixteen-year-old Nikaia Wales endures the taunts of bullies who call her a “half-breed.” At home, she worries about how her family will react if she reveals her growing feelings for the quiet boy next door.

Those are soon the least of her troubles. Nikaia discovers a hidden cache of gold, and when police find a corpse nearby, her father becomes a suspect. Worse, Elias Doyle is circling, hungry to avenge his brother’s death.

Nikaia desperately searches for clues to save her father. In her quest to find the killer, she learns about the power of family, friendship, and young love....

I sold about 4600 total-- way better than usual.  Woot for all the new Kindles and Nooks!  I also sold around 2000 copies of one book on B&N, but it's under the pen name that I keep a deep dark secret, so I am not going to put my records out there to prove it:-).  But it's nice to be in the silver category-- maybe I'll make it to the next level up eventually!

It seems like people have liked this before so I'm going to  do it again - but expanded. Now we'll have categories!  Remember this is "per month" so if you just crossed the 1,000 milestone by adding up sales for several months that doesnt count...yet (you'll make it). This is total sales and can be over multiple books (for instance Michael's is over 5).  An extra little bonus...an asterisk denotes more than one book that individually sold  over the 1,000 threshold.

Diamond (> 50,000)
Amanda Hocking* (99,000)

Platnium (> 10,000)
Michael Sullivan*
J.A. Konrath*
Victorine Lieske


Gold ( > 5,000)

Silver ( > 2,500)
Nathan Lowell*
Ellen Fisher*


Bronze ( > 1,000)
C. S. Marks
Sibel Hodge
Julie Christensen
Terri Reid*
Holly A. Hook

Hi Robin,
I probably should have added that each one of my books sold over 1,000 copies each for the little asterisk thing! LOL
Thanks!

My Amazon kindle book numbers are 2,488.

My B & N Nook book numbers from 12/1 to 12/29 are 324

Grand total: 2,812

That puts me in the Silver category!

I love seeing all of these numbers. It's interesting and inspirational!

As an aside, and it's a small thing, but I'm not sure I like the addition of gold, bronze, etc. Those are awarded for competitions and I'd hate for us to start turning this into a competition against each other. In a similar way, I'm not a fan of any "club" idea. Clubs are exclusive and one of the things I love most about KB is that it's inclusive. I would suggest more categories for more inclusion and better tracking.

Ymmv. :)

I tend to agree with Monique. I love hearing about everyone's fantastic sales numbers. It give me hope. And even though I woke up this morning and saw my name on the list (albeit in the wrong category)...I, too, am not exactly keen on the exclusivity of this notion. We're all in this together. It's not a competition...but it's kind of starting to feel that way in this thread. *sorry, don't mean to complain or cause trouble*.

I agree. Also, some of us have one book, others have multiple, so total counts really don't mean much when categorized like this.

I tend to agree.  I like seeing sales numbers because it gives me an idea of what is possible.  But establishing clubs, categories and levels...  not so much.
