Well, the sale is rolling along nicely. Way better than the last two sales because I actually advertised this time. And by the end of the day yesterday, I cleared the cost of the ad. Yay.
But it's actually kind of sad when making more than $15 on a sale is a Yay moment. I mean, you have to celebrate the little victories. But when you have to woohoo the small stuff because there are no big victories, it's sad.
Anyway, this morning's marketing copy for FB is all about reaching #48 in Hard-boiled Mystery. Breaking the Top 100 in any genre is cause for a bit of Woohoo. This is the image I made using the cover art and a screen capture of this morning's Amazon rankings:
We'll see if I sell any books today. I did get a couple page reads last night, so there's that to look forward to.
I made a new little graph in my sales spreadsheet to show month by month sales. It's pretty.
Next month is still up in the air. Whittling out enough money for advertising should be fun. We'll see how that goes. I'd like to lay some bigger money down so I can get bigger sales. I dream of being able to afford advertising at one of the big venues. Someday.
Meanwhile, this is good.
