I think someone threw a cloak of invisibility over me when they rang in the new year.
I actually sold a copy of my novel at SW before selling any at Amazon. However then the rules of the universe reasserted themselves and now I have 4 times as many sales at Amazon than at SW.ChristopherDavidPetersen said:As for sales across the other channels, B&N, SW, Sony, etc., they're all up slightly, but nothing to write about... but wait, I'm writing about it (ok, that was an exceedingly bad joke - lol). Anyway, it looks like they're up about 50 percent or so. But that's not really saying much because typically I only sell a handful a month there.
If anyone has any suggestions on how to improve sales at Smashwords (and the others), I'm all ears
Yeah, a lot of people only got through The Autumn That Must Never Be Mentioned Again by convincing themselves that Black Friday, then mid-December, then post-Christmas, then early January, sales would be made of rainbows and glitter and win, despite any real evidence. But that's okay, prawns. There's always Valentine's!Dalya said:I feel bad for the people who were expecting a big post-Christmas bonanza.
I don't see why it affects Amazon's reporting either, but most of us know the system isn't reporting in real-time like Amazon claims.Quiss said:Sucky.
Had a decent two-day promo which now totally fell off the cliff.
I went from selling about 25 per day between the two sci-fi titles just last week to 3-4 each over the last few days. WTH? Ranks utterly annihilated.
Not a happy camper
I don't see how Amazon's sales reports would impact sales reporting. That would mean all of us will suddenly see a clump of sales when they're done crunching numbers? Didn't happen last month. Won't happen this month.
We're such an optimistic bunch, though. Since I started this late summer, every month there is a thread such as this, and every time there is some reason for low sales and an assurance that next month will be better. What have we got, if not hope
