A few other items of note:
- Actual royalties amount to about two nice cases of California reserve, old-vine Zin. So the hope that springs eternal can be washed down with something more substantial.
- KW is all e-books, Amazon only. Print and other sales channels may react differently.
- Amazon does not announce a half-price sale in advance (even to the authors) so there’s no way to promote it until it happens.
- Second in series did not enjoy the popularity spike of the first book. I think that’s because the underlying Foreworld series itself is getting a little old.
Don’t know if this is of much help to anyone, but I do think it is indicative of sales patterns that most new authors can expect. And yes, there will be a third and final volume in the series. I’m really, really gonna need another case of Zin pretty soon.
