And was it all for just one book, or was it spread out among all your titles?

I seen this thread when it first went up and I keep coming back to check it. Sure hoping you get some responses because I'm new to this, and really curious to see what someone who is
even moderately successful gets. I published my first book last month and my best is 467 which is basically nothing...most days I'm at 300 or less.

I've been averaging around 4K per day spread over 15 books for the last 6 months or so.

I write historical romance, WW2 period and I think my readers seem to find one and go on to read the rest. The more books I publish, the more pages read I get.

Sales, on the other hand, are nowhere near as good.

My best ever was 60K back in November but right now I'm averaging about 3,000 each day. I have five titles in historical romance.

Historical romance seems popular with Amazon prime readers. I keep trying other genres, but always come back to this one if I want to earn some extra money.

Back in the day when I had most of one pen name's titles (erotica shorts and bundles of shorts) in Kay Yu, my baseline was between 10-12K per day. Each title has a relatively short shelf life, so the Kay Yu reads were driven mostly by new releases. Those books are all wide now. I don't really miss the Kay Yu crumbs, because the royalties from actual sales elsewhere are worth far more.

However, I wouldn't consider myself even moderately successful; I still have a day job and probably will for a while.

1500 is the most I've had. My average is probably half that.

Just over 3200 was my best day, all for the same book. I had four books in KDP at the time.

The best single day I can glean from my notes was from 9/9/16 to 9/10/16, with 124,342 pages in a day, for 8 titles. 70% of that was probably for a new series book #6, released near the start of that September. I don't come close to that level now. I finished that September with just below 2.5 million pages read. I finished April 2017 with 114,377 total for the month. A new series book is nearly ready, but my readership is fading as the series ages, so I may never repeat that previous best month. Hope springs eternal. :-)

Good luck,
Steve Bennett

My very, very brief (7 days) entry on the KENP graph recorded a high of just 851 for one day, it has been zeros since, (10 days). Alas, my hopes were raised and dashed in such a short period!

26,000 spread over nine titles. Have seen shot periods where daily average was in excess of 10,000. Then comes a period where I slack off on publishing and everything dropzs--- sales, ranking and reads.

After seeing the quoted figures by various authors, I plead the fifth. But I'm always happy when a reader reads my entire book in two hours or less. I usually know because I know the number of KENP pages.

My highest total for a single day has been 300 spread over four short stories. I've seen this total, probably half a dozen times. Always 300 exactly. Not sure what that means.

27695 for one title on 5 July 2015, for my first novel launched a month earlier.
The days before and after during that month were between 26k and 15k per day, but it tailed off and neither that nor the highly rated squel has achieved anything like that since.
These days the original novel gats around 1000-3500 per day, and the sequel gets between 4000-8500. The KDP version of the book pays more than a paid ebook, and 'sells' more too.
Hope that helps?
