My old friend Glob reading his tales
The £0.99p offer on my fantasy anthology Globular Van Der Graff’s Goblin Tales ended at midnight Wednesday. The number of books sold was just seven. Four of them were bought in America for the full price, where the offer was never in place.
What does this say about the sale of books today? Every published writer knows that it makes no difference how successful we may have been in the past regarding book sales. These days every single one of us is in the same boat. The public are simply not reading anything longer than a Tweet! Believe me when I tell you that low numbers of books bought has unfortunately become the norm.
I’ll give it another month and try the £0.99p deal again with one more of my books. In the meantime I look forward to seeing how many of the seven people who bought a copy actually read it. Thanks to KENP I’ll know how many pages are read. Unless Amazon change the rules yet again!
America, do please pay attention! When I offer any book of mine at £0.99 pence its is only because KDP only allow me to do so here in the UK. The last time I checked your national currency is the dollar not the pound. This is not to say that I am not grateful for the sales of four copies at full price.
