First Month Sales

My first book on Kindle, Anon X: Soldier, Spy, Hitman, Hero, went live a month ago and I'd like to report on the sales. So far, it has clocked some 40 sales, 25% of that from Amazon UK. Someone, please tell me that's a good start!

I have done very little promotion for the book except mention it here and on Twitter. And also feature it on No Trees Harmed's First Book drive. If anyone has pretty good ideas about how to get the book in front of more Kindle readers, please I'm all ears!

I experimented with both $.99 and $2.99 price points and strangely, there was barely any difference in sales. Amazon even discounted the book for a while before I took it down to the discounted price level. Anyway, I think I'm going to stick to the $2.99 price point for a longer while.

Thanks to everyone who bought a copy!

My next book, The Supernots, goes live in a few days and I hope it gets me more readers. Right now, I'm editing and can't wait to revisit Anon X.
