It has been an interesting week.
I’m busy this weekend selling books at Hal-Con – a huge local scifi/fantasy convention, which has really been taking most of my time and energy – but I wanted to let you folks know how the big October promotion was doing so far.
On October 29th I sold 129 copies of TATTERDEMON on Kindle – which is pretty huge.
I’ve sold 205 copies of TATTERDEMON through Kindle alone this month with almost half of those copies selling on October 29th.
I’ve sold a total of 269 Kindle e-books in the month of October so far – and I’ve got a couple of mini-promos lined up for the first week of November.
Following this promotion I intend to bump TATTERDEMON and DEVIL TREE up to $3.99 – probably by November 7 – which I think I will leave as my steady novel rate.
I’ve sold 48 copies of TATTERDEMON on Kobo this month – making the book #13 in their top-selling horror books this month.
I haven’t sold any copies of TATTERDEMON in Nook or Apple this month – in spite of the fact that several of my promo sites promoted wide.
Kindle is still king – which really isn’t much news to anyone here at all – but Kobo is really beginning to show me their worth this month. I had really begun to doubt the wisdom of not going strictly Kindle Select – but thanks to Kobo’s new Beta promotion tab – which I will tell you folks all about later this week – I have experienced new life over at Kobo.
I am REALLY tired this morning and I have to go and get some breakfast before heading to man the book table all day today – so I apologize for the rough and ragged nature of this morning’s blog entry.
Lastly – this November I am AGAIN tackling Nanowrimo – so the full-tilt-boogie is going on all month.
Wish me luck.

Really interested to hear about that beta promotion tab. I need SOME reason not to go back to Kindle Select with the first novel, too. Kindle advertising has proven interesting — if not quite profitable yet — with the novel that’s currently in.
I hear you Sandra. Kobo’s new developments are very interesting to watch and have been very useful to me over October and November. I’m still flipping a coin between them and full-tilt-Kindle. I did well enough with Kobo over October – thanks to the 99 cent Kobo promotional day – but so far the other promotions I’ve been involved with through Kobo in November haven’t been nearly as profitable.
I’ve got a couple of more solid releases before the end of this year – and I am going to have to put some serious thought into the direction that I am going to take with them.
