This has been my best ever month for sales, but I do about 60 hours of promotion a week. The few days i took a break from promotion saw my books drop down the rankings, but the days I worked hard witnessed my books climb into the top 100. So I think it is just trying to find your target audience really.

I dunno. I just checked for the fun of it and I was pleasantly surprised. I've been doing well. So far, sales for The Path of the Sword are a little more than 600% over April. I find it incredible: I've done almost no promotional work in the past week or so. Been so sick (I advise everyone to avoid bronchitis) I haven't had the energy. But things are going very well.
I suppose it's not saying that much. April was the first month it was out and it didn't exactly break any sales records but I'm still pleased.

Only 60, you lightweight! LOl

Mine's on a par, would be a lot better if I could release my third book. ::)

I was great for the first couple of weeks, but lost some sales for sure, during the hubbub of the freebies.  *shrugs*  I can't blame anyone, I was pretty excited myself!  :)

Sales seem to have picked up again, now that everyone has glutted themselves.  I think I'll end up the same as last month, although, I have sold quite a few of the new book, so that too, makes me happy. :)

I am lost. What freebies?

A great start to May, and then a near-total freeze for the last 2 weeks.  admit I did cut down on the promotion a lot, though.

congrats to those of you who are doing well--you deserve it for your hard work.

Amazon price-matched a larger number of titles. I believe the total number was over 300.

A lot of people said that their sales dropped during it.

My sales have been dropping since Easter, which coincided with a couple of one star reviews and then dropping out of the top #100 on Amazon UK. There was talk of a new sales ranking system and I also noticed that books I was competing with in the top #100 have dropped out too. I am wondering if the summer in the UK means more outdoors activities and less reading time.  :-\
