So, what's going on?

I continue to watch Penelope and The Movie Star statistics on Amazon. So far they have been dismal. It seems as if March shut down sales. On the hand, perhaps dead time is to be expected in this business. Many times I've seen on forums for Amazon, and Barnes and Noble postings, asking if anyone else has seen sales decline. I have no explanation why one week is good and another not.

On a positive note, I have had a "borrow". As part of KDP Select I will get a piece of pot. Yippee! Currently for March Amazon has $600,000 put aside. I've also reduced the book price to 99 cents for the month. That means if the payouts are what I have heard they've been in the past, chances are a good I'll make more money on a borrow than on a sale. Next month the price goes back to $2.99.

Also, next month I have a blog tour coming up, starting April 20. I'm excited to see how that turns out.  Coordinating the tour is Bewitching Book Tours.  I've hear a lot of good stuff about them. My daughter who has a book blog called Bittersweet Enchantment ran a promo last month. Check out her website!

Those are some new things going on in the world of Penelope Mysteries.

  1. Congrats on the borrow!

    Be interesting to see how the book tour goes and whether it really generates any sales or not. I have had conflicting opinions from different authors (all of whom were each using a different service, LOL!) so I am curious ;)

    good luck!
