Sword and Chant Update

To date, I can claim about 40 reported sales--which is about 30 more than I expected.  Those 30 sales are in all likelihood due to the wonderful review sartoris gave the novel at BookView Cafe and Goodreads, and the support of my VPXV classmates.  (Where would I be without you guys? :)  The majority of sales came through Amazon, though it also sold through Apple, Kobo, BN and iTunes.  Readers made their purchases in the U.S., Canada, UK and India.  This pleases me.

I don't expect much more in the way of sales until two things happen.  First, I must have more material published.  Second, strangers must like the book enough to review it.  The first I can control, and the second I cannot.  That's why my expectations were, and continue to be, low at this time.  Late summer is my target timeframe for having more fiction available, and thus the time during which I'll seek out non-annoying marketing options.  I did put some feelers out for one option, and should hear back in a couple to three weeks on it. 

Late next week, I'll be back on the fiction-writing wagon.  This weekend, I'm planning to finish the first draft of a short wellness text on how to find quality supplements when the market is saturated with substandard products, artificial ingredients, and contaminated materials.  Then I must make forward progress on the stress book as well because I now have an actual deadline: I'm teaching a workshop on the topic, and participants want the book, too!
