First off, Damsel has sold twice this month so far: once on the Amazon UK Store and once on their US Store. Considering I’ve done nothing in the way of promotion except this blog, facebook, and a couple comments on some other writers’ blogs, it’s hard to find anything to complain about with those sales numbers. Considering my cash flow estimates assumes five sales for each short story each month, it looks like I’m on track. Except Falling hasn’t sold at all. But whatever, I’m not worried at all. The more stuff I throw up, the more sales that will happen. Theoretically anyway.
So it’s a good start.
As for updates, I got about 800 words written in Masters last night, and just under 2200 tonight. That brings the total word count to 44,363 so far. By Scrivener’s reckoning, that’s 138 paperback pages or 212 printed pages. I’m not sure how it differentiates between the two. Regardless, this is far and away the biggest thing I’ve ever written. And there’s quite a bit more to go. So maybe it’ll be a bit more than 50 to 60 thousand words I projected last week when it’s done. I don’t know. We’ll see how it goes.
I will say the chapter I finished tonight is pretty good, if I do say so myself.
Clearly the new plan my wife and I are executing is working well so far. Amazing what results come from just turning off the damned Boob Tube!
Well that does it for tonight. Until next time!
