Before I went to bed last night I checked the sales data for my novella, JABBERWOCKY, and saw that it had sold 13 copies in June. Not too bad considering I've been giving it away free on Smashwords.com for most of the month.
This morning when I logged in I thought I was in the wrong account. It listed my book at 935 sales for the month. I double checked the login and sure enough, the sales data was for JABBERWOCKY.
Here's some raw numbers for number nerds like myself:
at 7:30 I had 'sold' 935 and sat at #111 on the Free Kindle List
at 9:00 it was up to 1431 and had moved up to #93 (that's 5.5 books per minute)
by 9:10, at 1501 'sales' it was up to #52 on the Free Kindle Book List, and #3 overall Epic Fantasy
It climbed through the day, and is still climbing, but the latest numbers show the following:
at 4:50 3700 'sales', it is number #12 on the Free Kindle Book List and #2 overall Epic Fantasy.
With all due respect to Mr. Carroll, JABBERWOCKY is currently ranked above Alice's Adventures in Wonderland on Kindle's Free List.
Here's hoping it climbs to the top 10 overall, and #1 Epic Fantasy!
