Refunds in March? Not on my watch!

Here ye, here ye, here ye! I have no refunds. For those of you living in Rio Lindo, that means -zero- refunds on my books thus far in March. I have every one of my works on KDP Select.

I disdain social media and my sales grow everyday. What's the secret? I took the plunge for the borrows and I sure am happy! How about you fellow campers? Is your pot cooking, are your wagons circled, sentries posted, and money in the bank? Hmm?

That's a high number to be sure. The question begs, what do you attribute the refunds to? You must have a very good idea and I find it staggering that you don't articulate the issue. Standing by itself a number mimics the Stonehenge, perhaps sequential in some mysterious way under the stars but unknown across the compendium of time and space. So, fess up. The world waits.

Well...as a percentage of his sales it is quite low...but that's me answering for him. What is it Sax, like 9 books out now, each selling a bundle? I would wager that our most humble of writers sees several thousand books fly from the shelves each month.

I have a question for all you well established forum authors. If I had a refund in the uk would it show up on my amazon.com report, or only on the uk report?

We are up to 49 refunds for this month. It is lower than normal. We can't complain because we sell lots of books. Refunds are part of the business. We also get a lot of borrows. Loving Amazon and Select. Can't wait to get our sequel out.
