August 2011 Sales Numbers

Another month has passed, and another month of book sales has happened. This month looked bleak, especially when compared with last month. But, in the last week of the month, things picked up. I sold more in the last week this month than any week before. Needless to say, this made me very happy.

During the month, I had three releases. They were Unspoken Stories - Volume 1 (eBook Edition), Unspoken Stories - Volume 1 (Print Edition), and the last story in Book 1 of the Miscorrection series, Sundown, which I published during Hurricane Irene (pretty impressive, right?).

Another signficant number not listed below is the sales for Copy Bird. For about a month, I attempted to get Amazon to put the short story up for free, and they finally did! Current sales stand at almost 4,500. That number makes me very happy because it means I got some of the exposure I wanted from the sale. Had it gone free and I only sold say 400, I would have considered the marketing attempt a dud. If you haven't read Copy Bird, it's still free on Amazon, so pick it up before they start charging for it again.

I'd like to send a big THANK YOU to anyone who bought my books last month. Y0ur support of my writing brings a huge smile to my face, especially since you're letting me entertain you with my writing. If you did buy one of my books and read it, feel free to write a review on your own site, Amazon, Barnes & Noble, or Smashwords. Your doing so would be greatly appreciated!

Now the moment you've been waiting for. Here are my paid book sales numbers for August 2011:

Total Paid Sales For August: 22

This total is double what I sold in July. Now, if sales keep doubling each month, I'll be one happy guy!

  1. You'll probably see more or less steady sales at those numbers until you get about 30 titles up. That was my experience, any way.

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…
