200th Copy Sold

This morning when I checked my CreateSpace account I was excited to see that I just sold my 200th copy of 5 Acres & A Dream The Book. In the larger context of books and book selling, I realize that may not seem like a lot. For a self-published author, that’s a milestone because the average sales for self-published books are less than 200 copies over the course of the book’s life.

Good reviews are coming in on Amazon.com, also Amazon.co.uk. I’m currently working on a “What readers are saying” page for Kikobian.com. And I’m starting to look ahead at my next book, possibly Critter Tales from 5 Acres & A Dream.

Also upcoming will be an online radio interview next Friday! More on that soon.

    WOW! Congratulations on 200+! Fantastic job!

    And you;re spot on about self-pub books. I’m stalled out at 100. 🙂

    (just a quick note, The font you’re using on this blog makes me feel like I need to put on glasses, even when I’m already wearing them! 🙂 )

    Congratulations, and best of luck on the radio!!!

      Garrett, thanks!

      And thanks for the feedback about the blog. Do you mean the size of the font? It looks like a standard sans serif to me, but I know monitors can interpret things differently. I have to admit wordpress isn’t as intuitive as blogger, in terms of finding and changing things.

        No, it’s actually the headings, with the shadow behind it… But it’s easy enough to get through. 🙂

          You know, I’m not finding wordpress to be as versatile and intuitive as blogger, but wordpress seems to be more available as blogging software to be added to a website.

          I confess I barely noticed the shadows, but appreciate the feedback! Who knows, there might even be something I can do about it. 🙂
