First Time Out releases on August 12th (available for preorder if anyone is interested lol) and before then I need to have all of the books I’ve already published updated. Meaning, they need to have their back matter, the information at the end of the book, updated to include links to my newest two books. While updating the back matter, it makes sense also to upload the new covers I’ve made.
I’ve got three series, so far I’ve managed to get all the files updated, I just need to upload them to all outlets. The series that’s currently only on Amazon has been updated, so that’s something. Most of the work is finished; I just have to get the files on the websites.
I’m not sure what happened, but when I updated that first series all of a sudden my sales disappeared. The last few months, I’ve seen an increase each month by $10. It’s kind of crazy since I haven’t published in two years, but it had my monthly income back over $100. I realize that’s not a lot for some people, but even at my peak I hadn’t yet reached the four figures, though, I was close a couple of months. So $100 is nice. I’ve had to step back from looking at my earnings because seeing the sales completely dry up was a hit to my confidence.
In other non-book related news, our water heater broke! So much fun. Since we’re currently living in an apartment we didn’t have to pay for a replacement, which was nice, but the way they had it set up all water went through the water heater and when we had to turn the water off it meant we had no water. No running water sucks, but after two days we’re finally back up and flowing.
I’ve been watching the newest season of Veronica Mars, so far really enjoying it. Haven’t been reading much, just too tired right now, and I’m alternating between Minecraft and The Sims 4.
