Last Sunday I thought the slide had finally stopped, but alas no. The week just finished was my worst since October 2010, getting on to two years ago, when I had many fewer books available.

The shortfall is in part made up by reasonably good sales on Createspace, the UK store, and Barnes & Noble, and also of course by loans on Kindle Select which aren't yet factored into the week's royalties.

I think however I will pull out of the Select program and hope that B&N sales make up for that. It will also get rid of the annoying price: 0.00 which people see even if they aren't Prime members.

Later: done!

I too saw an upswing in the third week and then a drop off for the fourth. I have no answers.

You don't mean you have your books in select and on other sites, do you? I didn't go with Select because I didn't want to confine my readers to Kindles. Turns out, it was the right decision for me.

Yeah, I'm not doing any more free giveaway. I think we're all just shooting ourselves in the collective foot.
