If you mean the Flex4 book, you know the answer. If you're thinking of writing another book to go with it, make sure you do something different than what you already have done.

Most of my books sell a copy every month, some as many as one hundred copies, but some don't sell any -- and the ones that don't sell are different every month. So my guess would be anywhere from none to a hundred.

(Don't trust KDP to publish a print edition. Don't trust CreateSpace to publish an ebook. Each does one thing well and the other thing poorly.)

Good luck! -- NJ
