The secret new book, under the secret new pen name has been out and about in the world for a week now!
It’s done much better than I was expecting. I haven’t told anyone about this book, apart from The Lovely Boyfriend (who has not bought it), so all of these sales have been organic.
With the handful from the other two books from my original pen name, that’s pushed me over the 100 line for the first time since April 2013, when I had a couple of pretty good months with my first novella. It’s a nice feeling, being back in the triple digits. I’ll have to wait until mid-May to find out if I’ve hit the $100 threshold in the US store to get paid, but I’m definitely close.
US Store: 32
Aus Store: 4
UK Store: 2
German Store: 1
Total: 39 sales
KU Pages read:
The book is/was 330/331 KENP, so those reads are the equivalent of 52 full reads.
Things are starting to slow down a bit now though. My highest rank was #12,893 on the second day after release, and it’s been floating around between #15k – #22k for most of the week, but it’s down to #30k today.
No reviews on Amazon yet, which might be hurting it, and also my Also-Boughts haven’t kicked in yet. Hopefully they do soon. I have had 5 ratings on Goodreads already, with an average rating of 4.25 which is pretty cool. Now I just hope I get some reviews on Amazon so I can actually advertise it, and that the first few aren’t 1* which would sink it pretty fast
