July 2011 Sales Numbers

Here's the first post with monthly sales numbers. I plan to post these once every month. I'll list all the eBooks I have for sale and the amounts they sold during the month, even if the number is zero. I've also updated the  Sales Numbers page with the total current sales numbers as of July 31, 2011.

Paid Sales for the month of July 2011 are:

I have also changed the pricing scheme for my eBooks. I did this based off of this post: The Real Problem With $.99 Ebooks. The structure sounded good, and I like that the price can help identify the length of the work. While I know it's impossible, I hope other indie authors adopt this same structure. I feel if they do, it can stabilize the prices of eBooks consumers search for, and help them to make better decisions on what to buy. As you know, the current landscape of indie author eBook pricing fluctuates so much, that you never really know what you are going to get. This may not be the solution to the problem, but it could help it!

Here is my new pricing structure. The below pricing structure is no longer in effect. Of course, I'm the only author who is also giving you the exchange rate pricing in Tacos:



  • $0.99 (1 Taco) - Books less 10,000 words

  • $1.99 (2 Tacos) - Books 10,001 to 20,000 words

  • $2.99 (3 Tacos) - Books 20,001 to 50,000 words

  • $3.99 (4 Tacos) - Books 50,001 to 75,000 words

  • $4.99 (5 Tacos) - Books 75,001 to 100,000 words

  • $5.99 (6 Tacos) - Books 100,001 words to ???


See you next month with the latest numbers. Just remember that by purchasing one or more of my eBooks, you could have an effect on next month's sales report!

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…
