Thanks to Rachel Aaron and Travis Bach for creating KDP Plus to consolidate Amazon numbers, though, or I might never have gone through the headache of doing so quite yet. If you’re a self-publisher using Amazon, their graph-generator is absolutely fantastic.
So! Some quick stats for Persinette‘s first three months on Amazon. I should also say, for its debut, I had enrolled it in Kindle Unlimited v.1.
Books sold from April to June: 51
Of those, 10 were from KU1/KOLL, 5 during pre-order
Books given away for May’s free-promotion week: 135
I’ll let you in on a secret, though. July goose-egged! I was expecting a drop-off with the summer slump and the 3-month end, but not to fall all the way to zero. Craziness. ETA: Oops! Misread my reports, haha. The confusion happened because I put a stop on my payments when I moved. Handy feature!
Otherwise, Goodreads has 3 reviews and 7 ratings (avg rating of 4.86) currently. That’s fantastic for such a niche, little book.
Overall, I’m very happy with how thing are going, (especially since numbers picked back up in August even though I wasn’t doing any sort of promotion, haha). I’m working on my next translations and projects, but in the meantime, numbers to grin at. Not a shabby start at all.
ETA: I forgot a fun stat! Countries represented in the above? Australia, Brazil, Canada, Germany, Japan, USA, and the UK.
Hi readers! 😀
