This month marks a big milestone for me– my 15,000th book sold. That’s 15,000 books paid for. That’s not a huge number for some authors. In fact, a best-seller might achieve that many sales in a week or a day, but it’s big for me. In a time when entertainment dollars are pulled in all different directions, as readers/viewers have music, movies, TV, and games to choose from in addition to books, having people willing to spend their money on your work says a great deal. For those of you who have purchased one or more of my books, thank you.
Fifteen thousand books sold is a great number. On the other hand, my free books count for many times that number, His Robot Girlfriend is coming up on 450,000 downloads. I’m very proud of this number too. His Robot Girlfriend has done so much for me and brought me to the attention of so many; it’s very lucky that I wrote and published it when I did. Looking back, I couldn’t have made a better choice than to get it out there as a free book. For those of you who read it, thank you too.
