Sales Tracker April – July 2013

** Update 8/2014 – Proceeds have been donated, and I am in the process of making the e-book free, and the paper back as cheap as I’m allowed. See my donation post here: Donation of my Proceeds to The Lifeline **

As most of you probably know, I’m donating all the proceeds of the sale of my book to The National Suicide Prevention Lifeline. My original goal was to make a donation once I made $100 of sales. I haven’t gotten there yet, but felt I should let anyone who is interested know of my progress. I may never get to that point, lol.  😉

Just so you know how I’m paid, there are two different formats available, a regular print book and a Kindle book.  The paper back sells for $9.89 on Amazon, and for each sale, I get $2.29.  The Kindle sells for $2.99, and for each sale I get around $2.04. There are some slight differences based on what country it’s sold in and whether it’s borrowed from the Kindle Lender’s library or purchased.

I’ve just recently found that I love audio books.  I figured they were for the hearing impaired or for workers with long commutes.  My commute is only about 15 minutes to work.  However, when working to produce the audio book for The Curse of Europa, I figured I should listen to an audio book or two.  Now I’m hooked!!  Even though my commute is only 15 minutes, that is still a good 30 minutes a day.  If I go to lunch I may listen again in my car, or take headphones and listen while I eat.  It’s great because it’s hard to find time to read and it is easy now to plug reading into time that is otherwise “wasted”, such as driving a car.

On our trip to Florida (driving from Michigan), it was great.  It kept me awake better than the radio.  Even laying in the sun.  Sure, you can…
