Status Update - January 2012

As I said earlier this month, I saw a spike in sales right around Thanksgiving and another spike over the Yule/Christmas-/Hannukah/Kwanzaa/New Year holidays. Other than that, December was a dead month (probably because all of you were at the mall, shopping).

On the plus side, I FINALLY got Zombie Wedding uploaded on December 30th.

Anyway, here's the sales numbers for December:

Creating a Business Plan for the Indie Writer - 3
Blood Magick - 3
Seasons of Magick: Spring - 3
Seasons of Magick: Summer/Die for Me - 4
Zombie Love - 5
Zombie Wedding - 2

Total for December = 20

The year end totals for 2011:

Creating a Business Plan for the Indie Writer - 4 sales, 42 given away
Blood Magick - 37
Seasons of Magick: Spring - 82
Seasons of Magick: Summer/Die for Me - 24
Zombie Love - 32
Zombie Wedding - 2

Totals for 2011 = 181 sales, 42 give aways

These posts give you an idea of what to expect as far as first-year sales for an unknown writer with no previous traditional publishing experience and/or reputation. Of course, your mileage may vary.

Okay, my loyal readers, please let me know in comments if this statistical crap really interests you. Otherwise, I'll just start posting more cute beagle and Lady Gaga videos. . .
