1.) Your first book will sell 5 copies in its first month. If you’re very lucky.

2.) Your first book will sell 50 copies in its first year, if you’re even luckier.

6.) More likely, you won’t see any sales increase until you get somewhere around book 10. If you ever see a sales increase at all.

7.) You will see sales when you run ads with certain popular ad sites (like Kindle Books & Tips and Ereader News Today).

8.) Unless all of those sites are Bookbub, the sales tail won’t last but a few…

Shameless Bragging

I’m amazed. My book, Dreams of Love, is currently #2 in free Love Poems in the Kindle store. And it’s in the top 5,000 of all free books in the Kindle store. I think that’s pretty cool and makes me feel pretty proud.

Do you have your copy yet?

But even more exciting is seeing Dreams of Love on one column and Love: Lost and Found in another area listed under Hot New Releases. How cool is that???

Remember, Dreams of Love is FREE through Saturday. And Love: Lost and Found is available for download on Kindle or in paperback
