We’re already a third of the way into June, how did that happen?! I’ve been getting back into the grove of writing the past week or so, after a month or more of barely writing anything and flittering around between different projects. I did get a lot of planning and notes down on a few… Continue reading Project update
I hit a small milestone yesterday. 1000 sales! It only took me 3 books and 3 and a bit years. Hah. Here’s hoping the next thousand doesn’t take quite so long…
Pretty safe to say that April was my best month in a long, long, long time. Official figures came out the other day. Across the board I made 49 sales and had 21,639 pages read. Combined, that equals about 116 sales/full reads 🙂 Happy with that! Triple figures! Woooo! The new book had a total… Continue reading April Numbers
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.… Continue reading First week (new pen name, new book)
So, my new book went fully live about 24 hours ago. So far, I’ve been really happy with it! This is the first book of a new pen name, that I have not promoted in the slightest and haven’t even told anyone about, so none of them are pity buys from friends/family! Nice feeling! Haha.… Continue reading First 24 hours live
Well, it’s done. It’s uploaded. Is it any good? I don’t know. But, my third book is about to be released into the wild. I’m not sure what I expect from this book. Probably safest not to expect anything at all. I’m starting a new pen name, and not telling any real life people about… Continue reading Book #3
You know if I’m silent, I haven’t written much. Week #11 was only 1478 words. Week #12 was only 1655 Week #13 was only 1610 words. Not. Good. Enough! Why so slow? I can easily write that much in a day (I did, today) and yet I have weeks on end of that being my… Continue reading Week #13 check-in (tip-toeing along)
Alrighty. It’s mid-month. That time that indie authors clammer for (or maybe it’s just me?), where Amazon releases our official sales figures for the previous month and you find out just how much you’re going to get paid for your Kindle Unlimited page reads. For the month of February, I earned a grand total of: Amazon.com:… Continue reading February sales numbers are in!
Writing is definitely my passion, and what I want to do with the rest of my life for a living, but obviously I’m not there yet (just have a squizz at the Show Me the Money tab above!). Not even close to there. Well, not unless I move to somewhere with an extremely low cost of… Continue reading One day of relief teaching = 120 sales.
Well, we’re only ten days into March and I’ve already almost written as much as I did in Feb! Yay!
