It is so amazing to me that my books are being sold internationally. This month I have sold 44 physical books, my biggest figure thus far, and the month isn't done. The top three sellers are all of my romance novel Hollywood Dreams: 17 dyslexic font copies, 15 hardcover, 9 large print, and then all different titles and formats. Geographic distribution: 6 in Australia, 15 France, 10 Germany, 3 Poland, 5 Canada. Some figures still haven't been processed and this is what's showing up on the IngramSpark dashboard. This is especially heartening because this book was traditionally published as a digital first and barely sold, then sat in my drawer for 8 years. And now here we are-I have readers and sales. It just goes to show that you never know how things will go in this publishing world and to never give up. Just keep swimming, little fish. I am loving this indie world and being a small press. So much freedom and opportunity.
