I’ve set myself a number of goals so I get a sense of achievement in this writerly game. Things like:
- Receive royalty from Amazon (achieved last month!)
- Break-even on the cost of producing my books
- Get my Amazon marketing campaigns into positive ACOS (ie earn more than I spend 🙂 )
- Win an award for one of my books
Well, one of my goals was to sell over 500 books…and sometime since releasing Golden City I finally achieved that goal! That’s across all 3 books, in all formats (paperback or e-book) and all sales platforms.
Unfortunately I am a long way off achieving any of my profitability goals. So that is my focus this year: make more money than I spend (easier said than done when I make less than a dollar per e-book sale…)
