11 copies and counting!

Post  z on Sun Mar 20, 2011 11:16 am


Sold 11 copies of The Crystal Warrior in the first week. Very Happy
Haven't done much advertising yet....

Getting my short story collection ready to go.
Should be up in a day or two. It is all short stories (about 12 of them) that I have written
over the years. Strange stuff.

Already had the cover done from years ago, so I don't need a killer cover from Steve this time....

The cover is one of the settings in the title story (Shiprock in New Mexico)

Yeah Sandy did a real nice review. She was one of my test readers too. She lives in Texas these days.
No hurry on reviewing. It's going well.

I KNOW your artwork is attracting readers!

They say "Don't judge a book by it's cover" (unless Star4mation did it) LOL Smile

I'm so pleased it's selling for you Z. I'll keep spreading the word Smile

I've written a short 5* review for you on Amazon, Z.
Hope it helps to shift a few more copies Smile

Thanks Steve! Reviews do help!

I changed the price to 99 cents too just to get more copies out there.
Will probably leave it that price for a month and then put it back at 2.99.

Smart move Z! Get a bigger following and they will all want to buy the sequal (at $3.99) Smile

Nigel left me a nice review for Goblins and Galaxies on Amazon.co.uk and I've uploaded the inner and back cover art too.

Yeah, that's how a lot of these Authors are getting an amazing number of sales.
They publish the first book at 99 cents and then write more at a higher price.

Once you get the readers hooked on your series, you just have to keep writing more... Cool

Luckily I already have a great idea for the next book (it starts where the first one left off).
And I could easily write a prequel that starts 500 years before the first book.

I am hoping to have book 2 done by the end of November.
Maybe sooner if I write every night (unlikely).

I Read the review -- PERFECT!

Great news on Goblins and Galaxies! It's really a great album, and the art work fantastic!

Prequel after the first trilogy usually works well Smile
I was begining to think RouteNote (Distribution company I used) had forgot to actually distribute Goblins and galaxies to all the popular download sites. Funny how i-tunes charge £2 more than Amazon for the same CD! (although i-tunes seems to be aimed more at the "i-pod generation" and they're easy to rip off!)
