Update on book sales thus far, which is also update on fundraising for Cancer
Well, history will tell if the book fundraising idea will be effective. I will never know of donations given by readers, only about book sales. They are dismal so far.
Of course, I knew that sales could not be vast due to my limited time for roadwork. I'm a single parent and so must be home, not out doing book marketing tours and readings.
I had counted on my contacts via email to spread the word, but that didn't come to much. In fact, my friends have not even bought books, except for three that I do greatly appreciate. Online sales are not happening too because people are reluctant to put their personal information into the Internet.
Locally, I have sold about 10 copies and given away an dozen or so. It is my hope that the resulting donations will happen after they read the story.
Offering the FREE download didn't make much difference, but about 15 are out there now.
If you are reading this and haven't downloaded, why not. You get a PDF file to view on screen. It really is a good story.
Post a Comment new!
