The Strachan Anomaly


There is an anomaly with the Strachan series that I always find a little surprising.  I have sold more copies of Dark Legacies, the fourth book in the series, than I have either Dark Illumination or Dark Resurrections.  It’s like people read Dark Cotillion and then decide to just skip to the end.

The sales are enough to be considered statistically significant.  I have sold 1.25 times as many copies of Dark Legacies as Dark Illumination and 1.33 as Dark Resurrections.  The breakdown:

5,689 copies of Dark Illumination

5,231 copies of Dark Resurrections

6,301 copies of Dark Legacies

For the record, this is my worst selling series.  There have only been around 20,000 downloads of Dark Cotillion.  In contrast, my mid-seller, The Dysfunctional Chronicles, has had 43,000 copies of The Dysfunctional Affair downloaded.  The Dreams & Reality series went over 150,000 for Tortured Dreams this year and with Elysium Dreams free, I’ve seen a huge increase in sales for the others in the series (which might prove that Elysium Dreams is the superior of the two books). Oddly, Cannibal Dreams is the worst selling book in that series.  I’ve had more downloads of Butchered – Belladonna than I have Cannibal (Mutilated Dreams is still too new to have accurate data)…

And now you know that I’m anal enough to keep track of all this.  I also sell better on iBooks than I do Nook.  iBooks actually accounts for nearly 1/4 of all my sales while Nook only accounts for about 1/8 (yes, that does mean I sell twice as many books on iBooks than on Nook and 4 times as more books on Amazon than I do iBooks).
