Shitty ebook sales, at least for me. Every April, I watch my ebook sales plummet. I run adverts and special sales, to no avail. On average, I sell only half the amount of ebooks in April that I sell in other months.
The publishing industry has always said that October is the worst month for book sales. Not mine. I can double and sometimes triple my sales in October with a little marketing. Which is why I’m aiming to get Innocent Dreams out that month. Releasing a book in October may do amazing things for my sales that month.
In contrast, releasing a book in March does nothing for my April sales. Next year, I’m going to release a book in April, maybe that will help the sad sales month. Of course, I’m still hoping to release a book a month in 2017, so…
However, if I start getting feedback that the quality of the books are suffering from this rapid publishing schedule, I will adjust and change it as need be. I’m not going to let my writing suffer because I took a challenge.
