End of year Kindle eBook Sales
I have mentioned that I have a few non-fiction books for sale for the Kindle, but since these books are not part of my experiment here, I won’t go into details. But I will say this month is the first time I’ll earn over $1000 USD just from the US Amazon Kindle store.
Just a few months ago, I could expect maybe $200-300 tops. It was good, reliable money, but recent weeks even before Christmas have been very good. And Christmas was very, very good.
Tanaka and the Yakuza’s Daughter is still selling at .99. The past two days have only had maybe one sale, but up until then, I’ve had several sales a day. I’m still hoping to make that short story free when the novel is released.
I regret not having the Tanaka novel ready by now, but it and, hopefully, Book two will be on sale this time next year.
So, non-fiction educational ebooks sell well but I don’t see huge spikes in popularity. Sales are steady and constant. I’m hoping–and this is the purpose of this blog–to really see some action with fiction in 2012. Of course, I’l chronicle it all here.
Here’s to a great 2012!
