My book, a true story, Wrong Place Wrong Time has been published since June 2012 and as I am new to this would like some comparisons of book sales. Up and till today, 11th Aug, 13.34pm, sale of 945 for last two days of July and 3168 for Aug..Just wondering is this good or not......Thanks.

Is this your book?

http://www.amazon.com/Wrong-Place-Time-ebook/dp/B008955FG2/ref=la_B0089Y9DW0_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1344689134&sr=1-1

If so, with a sales rank of 40,000 your figures are way off. Are you including free books promotion? A 40,000 sales rank is 5 sales a day, maximum. Nothing like a 100 a day as you suggest for August.

Fingers crossed for you!

regards

Congratulations, Dave! This is absolutely fantastic. Not many indie's sell like that! I have a gut feeling - I see a film coming.

I am so happy for you.

Hey Syana,

Thank you so much for your comments. The figure has reached just 70 short of 4,000 for August, its the 15th, it has taken me by surprise. Also your not the first one who has metioned a film. Anyway, until that happens, I'd be doing my day job and hoping for the best.

Thanks again,

Best wishes

Dave....

I think my book would sell more if I one didn't have to do a search for it.
Fly Away Free Part I and II are Kindle exclusive but they don't show unless you do a search for the title is there another way to get it out there?
I've only sold six since May. It's a thriller.

Nellie,

Just checked your book on UK and USA, I gave you your first like on each one. You need to market your book, do you have a facebook page and a twitter account.

My book has only been published since mid June, my first book, but unless you work at marketing your book then who will ever know of it. I spend many hours a day promoting my book, either on my blog, other blogs, facebook, twitter, it has to be done.

Anyway, let me know if you need any help!

Those are really impressive numbers for first time selling.

how did your numbers start out? I'm also a first time author and got 12 sales in 2 days on my book...

just trying to find out how numbers average for newbies to publishing.

Hi,

First month in June was slow as expected, then a free promotion, 13,000 downloads, then took off in July with 1,000 copies sold, and now nearly 5,500 in August.

The think is you must do a lot marketing, twitter, facebook, other blogs as well as your own.

What is your book called?
