eBook Sales Numbers

I have a really bad habit. Every day, I have to check my eBook sales numbers. In fact, sometimes I get downright compulsive about it. A lot of Indie Authors have this issue, because even when the number jumps by one sale, we get excited.

Frankly, checking the sales number is a waste of time. At least at the frequency that I check them. So, I've decided to only check my numbers the first of each month, starting now. The only exception to this will be when I check my sales on Barnes & Noble because I extended Taco Week for the release of Awry and B&N got it up four days late.

Once I check my sales numbers, I will post them around the beginning of each month. Don't expect huge numbers though. Currently, my sell through is very low. But I hope that changes as time passes.

  1. Well, I certainly wish you the best. I am in the process of completing my first ebook and I have no clue what to expect once it's published and put up for sale. I can only imagine the thrill of having one out on the market and I can understand the bits of anxiety that prompt you to check your sales frequently. Any advice on how to self-publish? Best of luck!

How to Make a Face Mask

The United States' president and some governors are now recommending people wear a face mask to help prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus. They're also asking that the N95 masks be reserved for healthcare workers as they help those who are suffering from the virus.

In light of this, you might be wondering if you can make one yourself?

In the video below, my wife demonstrates how to make a reusable face mask for you and your family. Though this won't guarantee prevention of the spread of the virus, it is in line with what we're being asked. Every little bit can help!


Quaratined or Stuck at Home? Here are some free books.

The global crisis regarding the COVID-19 virus (or coronavirus) is affecting anyone and everyone. Whether you get the virus or not, in some way, our lives are being impacted. Schools are closed. Parties discouraged. Social distancing encouraged. Entire countries in lockdown. Toilet paper being bought up like it's gold. The list goes on and on.

Pretty stressful stuff for sure. Something out of a movie or book. Something none of us have ever experienced to the point that it might be surreal.

You probably find yourself stuck at home right now, looking for something to do. Netflix, Disney+, video games, books. Those are probably keeping everybody company.

I'd like to give you something to occupy your time while you wait this thing out. So, starting today until the end of the month (or possibly longer depending how all of this goes), you can read any of my books at no cost. This option is available through the Smashwords website using the coupon code listed below. (This coupon cod…
