Shauna, no, I didn't spend any money on marketing yet. All word of mouth, blogging (and not too many guest blogs), and social media. It really wasn't much at all due to not being sure what I should do at first and then having to make an international move.
Louisa, I agree! I'm hoping for a strong 2012 for all of us! Glad you found this informative.
Kathy, I'm glad you're seeing more sales with multiple books. That's what I'm working on now, getting them done, edited, and published. Whew! What a lot of work to do it all yourself! LOL! Thanks for the encouragement! 🙂
Thanks for sharing your numbers. I am noticing an increase with having multiple books up – looking forward to getting the next 2 books up there. But I appreciated your husband's comment – mine has told me something similar. We can fret about our numbers and wonder if it's worth it so it's nice to hear that perspective. Oprah said if you feel called to write, you write, whether you have 15 readers of 5 billion.
Publishing certainly can be a slow road. Let's hope for a strong showing in 2012! Informative column.
Thanks for sharing your numbers, Kitty.
You didn't mention any money spent on marketing. Did you rely totally on word of mouth to sell your book?
