It was with a great deal of trepidation that I put the first book I’m charging for on line. If I’m honest, I didnt expect anyone to be willing to part with money for my ramblings. But, I put it on for pre-order and hoped for the best.
Amazingly, I got 29 pre-orders. At first I thought it was a speck of dust on my glasses but I cleaned them and confirmed that, yes, 29 people had parted with their hardearned cash for my story.
Needless to say, I was over joyed with this result.
Well, the book was finally released on wednesday. It’s now been five days and today I officially hit 101 sales.
Yup, 101 people have handed out money for a story written by lil’ old me.
I have no delutions that I will sell many more, After the initial influx of customers, I’ve now dropped down to a few sales a day. And I fully acknowledge that 101 sales is merely a drop in the ocean in the grand scheme of things.
However, to me 101 sales is brilliant. As I happy dance around my room, trying my hardest not to trip over the dog, I can’t help but be overjoyed at the result.
People have paid for a book I wrote. I am an Author!!
