I'm not sure if this post will be of interest to readers, or if some new authors will appreciate it, but I'm going to share my sales results with you.
The Water Witch has been out for just over a week and I've been really happy with my results. it's not huge numbers, being a new, unknown, author that's not a big surprise. But in case you are interested how the world of self publishing works, here are my figures for 21 - 30 September 2019
The Water Witch has sold 31 copies
I had read through on Kindle Unlimited of 1,052 pages (about 8 copies of the book)
Wait for it.... $95!
Yup, being a writer is only a high paying job if you are selling the big numbers, but that's cool, this is only one week of a first release and it's a damn good start.
If you want to help out, you don't have to buy the book (although I'd love it if you did!) but sharing social media posts or leaving a review goes a long way to helping me become more visible on the internet, which makes it easier for me to be seen by potential readers.
Hope this was interesting for you and gave you a little insight into the life of a self published author.
