I just want to thank everyone that helped out in the beginning of April when I put book 3 out. The push of people picking it up in a short span of time may have been one of the keys to this month blowing away all of my prior sales records as well as any reasonable expectation I could have ever had for a “good” month of sales. That’s all, just wanted to say thanks to everyone for an amazing month of sales.
Now, if I can just boost sales a little more and someday get it into the “right” hands I can get to see After the Storm the movie… wouldn’t that be a kick in the head? 🙂
P.S. I would LOVE to see that someday! LOVELOVELOVE!
Have a great week all,
So I finally finished 200 pages of the second book last night. earlier that day I had also sold 200 of the first book in under fifteen days. Now this may not sound like a huge amount to some of you but I’m pretty happy with it. I will by no means be retiring to my own private island anytime soon but it will hopefully help pay the bills.
I was happier by far surpassing the 200 page mark than I was with the sales. The last book came in around 360 pages total when I was done so I’m guessing I’m about half way done with the second book if my estimations are correct. I really would like to wrap it up and have it edited and up for sale by the end May or early June. I’m not sure if these goals are attainable but I like having a deadline. It gives me a purpose, a reason to write.
I got stuck for a couple days in this second story, I had finished one major section and knew where the next major section started but I was having trouble bridging the gap. I’m sure it’s not an uncommon problem for writers but since I’m so new to this game and know no other writers personally I have to just assume that any difficulty I may come across has already been come upon and overcome by many and much better than myself already.
Off to see if I can get some actual work done, enjoy the day.
So as I have sometimes posted in my other blog Thursday is usually grocery day. I often come home from grocery day very angry and think that the world needs a culling. As usual I think it again this thursday even though there was no particularly bad thing that happened, I just think the world is far too overpopulated when a grocery store parking lot is jammed packed at 2PM on a thursday.
Anyway, I spent all day yesterday trying to get websites linked and all that crap so today I will work on getting some more pages of book 2 done. The first book had just about doubled last month sales and has already broken 300 for the month of march. It may not be a huge number but I’m very pleased that it sold half that many.
Book 2 is nicely taking shape, the story is filling out nicely and hopefully people will enjoy seeing my characters back in action. I’d say I’m almost halfway through with writing it and hopefully will have it up on Amazon sometime in late May or June.
off to write some more pages!
