Like other authors, I listed some crazy goals when I self-published my first novel three years ago. One of them was selling 10,000 books in a year.
So all I can say is thanks to the thousands of readers (and customers) who have purchased, and hopefully enjoyed, the Lance “Preacher” Priest books. Thanks also to Amazon for providing an excellent channel for independent authors. Thanks to smashwords for providing a means to distribute digital content to multiple channels.
Number 10,000 for year 2014 was purchased this week.
Like other authors, I didn’t go into this looking to become a self-publisher and take on all the fun and excitement and work required well after the books are done. But when you reach crazy goals like this, it makes it all worth it and then some.
So, you know what’s next don’t you? — 100,000 books in a year! Gotta have goals.
And thanks again to all who have purchased, read, reviewed and shared my books. Thanks every one of you.
