It’s August first, my friends, and that means a couple of things. First, it means I’m going back to work so soon it almost makes me want to weep. Second, it means my birthday is in a mere 24 days (I am accepting Amazon.com gift cards). And third, it means the monthly Kindle sales for Other People’s Heroes have once again been tallied up.
As you may remember, the June sales more than tripled the May sales. I wasn’t expecting a performance quite that good in July, and I was right, but July did continue to improve on June, increasing sales by a little more than 35 percent. Again, it’s not money that will make me rich, but it will definitely come in handy. My goal, for the time being at least, is for each month to improve on the previous month. If I can keep that going, I’ll be happy.
Hopefully, I’ll have a second novel to add to that tally very soon. My graphic designer (hi, Heather!) has gotten the software she needs to really cut loose, and as soon as she’s got a cover for The Beginner I’ll be tossing that your way as well. In the meantime, thanks to everyone who has supported Other People’s Heroes, and I hope you’ll be there for The Beginner, the upcoming Kindle Single The Restless Dead of Siegel City (the Halloween-themed follow-up short story to OPH) and the already-available A Long November and Other Tales of Christmas. By the end of the year, I intend to have at least those four products available in every eBook store.
And in 2012, even more.
