Kindle Update! By June Sproat

This past week has been a bit crazy for me. We lost power for four days due to the bad Illinois storms. I think we would have gotten power sooner if ComEd decided to come and fix the line that was pulled down by a tree, but I digress.

I wanted to update Acme readers to the status of my Kindle book Ordinary Me. I announced that I was putting the book on kindle last year and truly I am amazed at what has transpired.

In the past month alone, the sales of my ebook have more than doubled. Here is a screen shot.

What was more amazing was watching my book bounce around in the top 100 list! How cool is that. At one point it was #64! I'm at 86 this morning.

Yes, it is fun to make money, but what is way more exciting than that is the fact that hundreds of people are reading my book! That alone is total motivation to get the next one done.

Have a great week!

That is very impressive. Did you do any additional marketing or promoting that is raising your sales numbers?

Hi SBJones,
I simply followed the advice of our own Rob Walker. I asked people to tag the book on Amazon, but I didn't notice huge increase in the tags, yet the book has increased in sales.

I am not sure of the reason. I wonder if it has to do with ipad having the kindle app, but I am not sure.

Thanks for the comment.

Congrats, June! Those are impressive numbers. (Obviously word is spreading as to what a wonderful book it is...)

I know I for one am looking forward to you getting the next one out!

See you tonight?

June said...

Thanks Deb,
I'm working on it!
Yes, see you tonight.
