FTF Kindle Report Card: An update
I posted a few months ago this Kindle report card for FTF
. At the time I was amazed at October’s figures, but this update is just to show how November and December totally kicked October’s butt. (And January 2011 has so far kicked December’s.)
Fairy Tale Fail
isn’t a bestseller yet, not by Amazon’s standards. On any given day it can be ranked anywhere between #1,800 to #8,000 on their list. I’m thankful for the buzz that book bloggers and reading groups have given it, which likely help — along with Amazon’s recommendations feature — in keeping the book alive and thriving as it nears its anniversary on the Kindle store. I’m aware that book sales dip in the months after the initial launch and marketing push, but that’s not necessarily true now. At least, not for Fairy Tale Fail.
The point of this? Go finish that novel and publish it on the Kindle. Do it do it! And when you do, don’t be discouraged when the first few months are tough. It’ll get better.
