My first full month.

1 novel - 2 sold at $2.99, 1 sold at $4.99
2 short stories - The UF sold 3 copies at .99, and multi-genre sort of horror sold 14 copies at .99

Over $13, but divided over 2 accounts...so no check for this month

June definitely went in the right direction, so I'm happy. Would love to see it double again. :)

139 total. Which, coincidentally, is exactly what I sold last month. But this month, I sold a lot more in the UK than I ever have. Of course that means my US sales were down this month too.

June was not good for me.

Actually, it was soooo bad, I didn't even add up the totals, because I could do it on my fingers.

I'd like my Feb, Mar, or Apr numbers back, please.

How do you make a short story free on Amazon?  (I know how to do it via Smashwords.)

I have a 17k story I'd like to get out there for free... would be nice to hit the Amazon market though.

Hey, I actually have some to report. My first time with a self-pubbed ebook!

Amazon US: 3

I wasn't expecting any June sales at all since my official launch date for The Boyfriend Thief was actually today (July 1). But I uploaded the file last night so it could process and be ready for this morning. Three people found it up before midnight, so they counted for June.  ;D

The Truth About Dating sold about 1650.  Searching For Meredith Love was 327.
Sales are way down since Amazon switched around how it promotes, but I still can't complain.  My third book is about to come out.  It's a series, so I'm hoping it will sell.
