Woah has someone been a complete slacker in the past few months. And by that I mean me. But I will focus. I will get back to writing. I will get back to posting. I have a lot of big plans for the future. So yeah.

I didn’t do any marketing at all last month and you can tell by my sales. I had a total of 2 sales all month, and I blame myself for that. Two more books for the little engine that could known as Twisted & Sinful Stories. I guess the saying is true. Sex really does sell. And there’s nothing wrong with that.

There will several posts this weekend as I get back into the swing of things. Hope all is well with everyone.

State of Sales April 2017

Welcome back to the State of Sales for April 2017. If you remember last month I had a big ol goose egg. Well the good news when that happens is I can only go up, right? And I did!

It does help that I did a free sale which got my name out there a little bit more. It’s a necessary evil to give away free books. Especially if it helps me get some sales in the long run.

The leader in book sales continues to be the Anthology that Morganna Williams, Jack Crosby, Jeremy Croston and I wrote called “Twisted & Sinful Stories”. That book has definitely proven that sex sells. With the exception of last month, there has been at least one sale a month since it’s release back in May of 2016. Has it really been that long? I’d say we need to do another one….

The Time Traveler’s Journal also had some sales this month as well. I know I’ve said it before, but of all my books that is the book I’m most proud of. Reviews have been excellent on that book too, which is good.

Stick with me because there’s some exciting news coming up in the very near future as far as this blog goes. It’s awesome when you’re able to partner with people you trust. So I’ll be able to announce that soon, I think.

In the mean time, have a good one (almost) everybody!

State Of Sales for March 2017

Welcome back. I started a trend last month where I’d give you some information about the sales for the previous month so we’re back for that!

February 2017 was probably my worst month as far as sales went. So I set a goal to increase sales. I started a new marketing campaign to hopefully draw some interest into my books. Guess what?

It didn’t work. How many sales did I have for all of March? That would be none. I got shut out for the month. Oh the thrills of being an independent author. It’s okay. There was a time that would have crushed me. Does it sting? Yes. Am I contemplating giving up the ghost and packing it in? To cue WWE’s Dean Ambrose.

It will always be a struggle as an independent author. I knew that going on. I was warned.

Maybe it’s because I don’t have a release date for any new book? I don’t know. Whatever the case I’m still working on the new book. And at least I’m once again getting my name out there. How?

Yes, I know today’s April Fool’s Day. My birthday is in a few days, so I wanted to give thanks to the readers. My two most successful books each have a three day window where they are free. Going on right now Paranormal Contact Vol. 3 is free. That’s good from today until Monday. Monday through Wednesday The Time Traveler’s Journal will be free as well.

Here’s a poster for the free books just to help!
