Since being released on August 20th, my latest novel, The Menagerie, has been doing fairly well with sales of paperbacks on Amazon and Barnes & Noble as well as eBook sales on Amazon Kindle. Comments to me from some of those who have purchased my book have been extremely positive thus far! Now those of you sending those nice comments, please share them by posting them on a review on Amazon. Or, Barnes and Noble if that's where you got it!
There have been some positive comments on the purchase of the book in the beginning that have yet to show up on my sales listing for CreateSpace or Kindle Direct Publishing. I'm sure they will at some point, as it can take sometimes 30 to 90 days for sales to show up on my account from some sales outlets. I am still pleased with the positive comments left and glad that they are enjoying my book!
For those who have been following me and my blog for a while now, you know my self-published through CreateSpace, which was the publishing division of Amazon paperback books. This month I am no longer using CreateSpace as Amazon Combined CreateSpace and Kindle into one account location for both paperback and eBooks called Kindle Direct Publishing, or KDP for short. This should make it easier for authors to publish their works on both venues. I shall see! So far it seems to be working fine!
With The Menagerie finished and working its way up the sales ladder, it's now time to start thinking about my next novel. Looking at a custom book cover site, I recent saw a cover template that caught my eye so much, I decided to buy it for a future novel. Now I need to come up with a story to match a cover instead of a cover to match a story! I'll post the image here and perhaps you'll see why I love it. The image I almost used for The Menagerie, but decided not to. It does fit the time period though, so perhaps I'll find the story there! Here is the cover image.
Thank you to all who have purchased or have helped to promote my latest and past books! Hope you all have a nice start to the quickly arriving holiday season!
