Two months in, an update

I’ve been busy editing book two of Undead Love, but I wanted to take a moment to reflect on the past two months since I released book one.

As of today, I have sold 77 copies and have over 24,000 page reads in Kindle Unlimited.  I have spent maybe $30 on promos in this time, with $25 of that going towards a facebook party to help grow my mailing list.  The big shocker to me was that month two greatly outperformed my first month, even when you take away the kindle countdown deal.  In the past week, I have seen more steady sales than I did at the end of month one.  I have reworked my blurb to a point that I am finally happy with it and I think it is more engaging to the reader than ever.

Right now, the paperback version of Undead Love is going through review and should be available by the end of the week.  It will be awesome to actually hold a copy in my hands.  Originally, I wasn’t going to do print copies.  But it seems like money left on the table not to, and as a bonus, it makes the kindle version look like a better deal when you have that $10 price with a line through it.

I am up to 6 reviews on Amazon, with a 4.7 rating.  It seems people are actually enjoying what I have written.  Once I top 20 reviews, I’m going to try for a bookbub, but I would prefer to have 30-40 to solidify my case.

Time to get back to work on book 2.

He wanted to get to know her more, but her tough as nails group shut that down because, when supplies are…
