I am hoping this stays up so most people read and understand what i mean. It is so annoying when you see people brag or bragplain and they talk about how they've sold so many books yet they never post a link or talk about the price. There is a giant differnce between those who actually sell books for 2.99 and the silly 99 cent folks. So please people if you are going to brag leave all the details so you are not wasting everyones time
Me thinks Chad does not believe some of the numbers posted here.
That's ok, I have my doubts too sometimes. I am more apt to believe the numbers now than I was when I'd only sold about 50 books myself. Now I know that you have to consider how long one has been selling books, how many they have published, at what price, and what those numbers actually mean.
I do not lie when I say I have given over 35,000 books away free. What does that actually mean? It means I'm out of my wits...or it could mean I'm on to something. You all get to guess which. :o)
Its mostly just common sense. Yes i have doubts about peoples numbers but also if someone is selling well i'd like to see their book maybe even buy it myself. I mean honestly very few people here use thrir real names and i dont want to have to hunt them down
I have posted screenshots of my KDP reports and still was accused of lying, and people demanded to know the titles and my pen name. No thanks to all the one star reviews from authors I would get. A small percentage seems to enjoy ambushing other writers for some reason. It is understandable that an author would want to share some good news with other authors here. Writing can be a lonely endeavor.
