Last year I realised that I was consistently making sales for paperback versions of my Free Rein books through Amazon. At that stage, only the first two paperback books were for sale although I had the next four available in paperbacks through Lulu, a print on demand company. I tend to release Kindle versions first, as an electronic version appears to be quicker to make available once I am happy with formatting – organising print copies and ensuring the covers work well is a longer process before releasing paperbacks for sale.
So I decided to get myself organised and distribute paperback versions of the books so that they were available on Amazon. Now the first seven books in the series (of which there are currently nine) are available for sale as paperback versions as well as Kindle.
In January I received a payment from Lulu (based on Lulu and Amazon sales) that was larger than anticipated – this was exciting! When I actually took the time to look at the numbers, I was amazed to find that just over 100 Free Rein books had been purchased over the month of December – whoo!
This feels like a wonderful achievement and I’m excited to think about the number of children that could be impacted through reading this series. Awesome 🙂
