October 2011 Sales Numbers

October was a steady month for books sales at Forever Young Publishing. Below are the numbers, and I couldn't be happier. While I would have liked to see an increase in sales as I have the previous months, remaining steady was good.


There is a positive sign to this months numbers. Last month, Copy Bird made up most of my 37 sales. This month, while it did have the largest amount of sales at 13, the numbers are a lot more diverse. I think I know why, too.


In September I released Miscorrection: Book 1 (Sunrise to Sundown). It's the complete collection of all the stories that make up Book 1 in the series. If you were to download the sample of the eBook for your Amazon Kindle or Barnes & Noble Nook, you could actually read the first story in the series, Sunrise, free. Since that was the case, I thought it would only be fair that I offer the standalone of Sunrise for free, too! This has resulted in sales of the other stories, which is great to see. I'm hoping it continues to move in that positive direction.


For November and December, you can expect two more eBook releases. In November, I plan to release a flash fiction collection. This will contain 40 stories for $0.99. This eBook will also be added into All My Fiction for those who own it. In December, and under the pen name Desmond Shepherd, I will be releasing my first novel, Fram Gage & The Infinite Ability. Since this is not written under B.C. Young, I will not included it in All My Fiction. However, I do plan to put the first two to three chapters in the book.


Speaking of Desmond Shepherd, you can now follow him on Facebook and Twitter. Tomorrow, there will be a new post that will give you the chance to help in the release of Fram Gage & The Infinite Ability. The post will contain three potential synopses for the book. You'll get to vote on which one you like best, and I'll use it for the eBooks listing on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and other locations. Don't miss out on it!


Until next month, happy reading!

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…
