I’m a prawn and have been publishing for a year. Prior to Christmas I was selling 40 to 50 books per month.
Then in January I sold 95, and I’ve already sold 57 for February. I haven’t changed covers or blurbs, or my marketing. Nor have I released a new book.
Just prior to Christmas I updated all my back matter, and instead of an ‘About the Author’ – which was I love family history and writing, I live here blah blah. I changed it to Author Notes, and I thanked the reader for reading my book. I explained that I was an Indie and how important their support was. I asked them to leave a rating on Amazon if they liked my book, or to consider one of my other titles.
I think this has really resonated with my readers and could be why my sales have nearly doubled.
Anyway, I just thought I’d share my experience. It might be of some help to you.
Have a great day amazing people
