FTF Kindle report card

October 29, 2010 - - 2 Comments


This graph represents Fairy Tale Fail‘s sales figures on the Amazon Kindle Store in its first six months. It’s not at all at the level of quitting my day job, but for an indie publishing experiment you can probably see why I’m excited. I don’t know what accounts for the spike, but my theories:

– Changing the price from $1.89 to $0.99
Tina at One More Page’s review
– Joining Goodreads and the Goodreads Filipino group
– Amazon reviews from Laura and Vicki Tyley
– Amazon UK’s Kindle Store opening in August (but based on figures, this isn’t significantly the cause)
– Releasing a more expensive paperback ($7.99) drove people to purchase the ebook
– Amazon’s recommendations algorithm

Maybe it’s a combination of all of the above, only Amazon really knows, but this makes me want to release that next book project now. There just might be a market for it after all!

BTW – for FTF’s early adopters who purchased at $1.89, you will be getting the next ebook project free from me. Working on it now. ๐Ÿ™‚
