I cannot express how thankful I am for anyone who clicks here on this blog, my other blog, my Twitter, my Facebook, or just happens to see my name or book on Amazon and goes for a copy.
This past weekend had been my personal best sales weekend ever in a single weekend. On a personal note, I needed it because this weekend saw so many changes that it was a little emotional for me.
I attribute the Select program for the boost but then again, without the readers (YOU!) clicking to buy, I’d have nothing to show for myself.
I will say this though… those who aren’t sure about Select, do your homework. It’s not guaranteed at all and it’s an exclusive contract with lots of things to read to ensure you don’t break that contract. We have TONS of books on Barnes & Noble that made a home for themselves and the Nook readers have been great. With If Errands Could Kill, we decided to run this series strictly through Amazon. We wanted to try something new, test the waters, and see what’s out there.
Part of this business is luck. Part of it is skill. Part of it is risk.
The trick is to find the perfect balance between the three.
Have I perfected that balance?
NOPE. But I feel I’m getting damn close.
