That’s quite good, isn’t it? Sales are currently sitting at 2,323. That’s quite good too. This is making up for a spectacularly crappy day. ← In which I suggest blacking out Wikipedia doesn’t really change much → “Long-term there’s no future in printed books” 5 replies on “I’m a chart-topper, baby” Still no idea what a techno thriller is. Us it like a really good rave? Anyhow, why’s today so bad? It’d take far too long to explain. A catalogue of bastardy and cock-ups. Does this success mean that you’ll be shunning us and putting up your prices? :) Did you have any targets you’d hoped to meet? And are you meeting them? 2500 is great. I imagine that now it’s appearing at the top of the (admittedly niche) charts it’ll begin to create its own momentum. Well, you’d like to think so, anyway. I’m a couple of days shy of the 2500 mark, but it’s more than I thought I’d do. I figured that if I sold 1,000 copies I’d be delighted, which I was, and I still am. You’re right, there’s definitely momentum once you get into any of the charts. That and the “people also bought” boxes are enormously powerful. I think it’s why the book barely sold on other platforms: it didn’t generate the same momentum. It’s definitely much easier on Kindle.
