I know I don't sell as many books as a lot of people on this site, but I usually get two or three a day--sometimes four or five--but this week has been awful. I haven't sold a book in five days. Anybody else having the problem? Maybe Kindle is having a reporting problem, I hope, I hope.

Same here. This is my first month, so I wasn't sure what to expect.

I think I must have arrived at a bad time. Only sold one of my short stories since I've been here about two weeks. I hope things will take off soon. Better get cracking on a novel PDQ I suppose.

There's nothing more motivating than the Amazon.De BBoS! :D

Don't you clack at me. Just been listening to Mellisa venema playing Il silenzio with Andre Rieu. Does that count? I know they're Dutch. Certainly gets the old juices flowing anyway. Creative jiuces, that is. Good looks and talent too. Not talking about Andre:) I might just try and write my Amazon De bio but my German is a bit rusty.Ich Kennen schreiben sie:) I think that's right?

I used to go months without a download when I had things up for sale. Now that they're free, people download thousands per week, and some actually get read based on the occasional review. I know this isn't for everybody but it pleases me.

This has not been a good week - I'm just now restoring to sales levels from last month. Thank goodness those sunshine deal ads came down! I started the month looking for 20% growth, now it looks like I'll be lucky to match last month's sales!

Glad to see I'm not the only one suffering a significant dip. Well, not glad that our sales are dipping, but glad that it may be a general market-wide trend for newly published indies rather than anything I might have done directly. I've been toying with dropping my collection to free in preparation for my next release at the end of June, perhaps I should wait until the sale ends and see if there's any effect there.

I was about to email Amazon when I saw this. Serious lack in sales, not funny at all. Why does Amazon encourage Indies to the site, to then whip the carpet from under them all the time.. I am tiring of the fight, gone from over 100 a day around 3k a month, to 120 a week now nothing in 2 days.. Soul destroying! I was wondering if it was broken?

Probably because they can?
