Hi, all my faithful followers.

Whew! Last week was so busy, both at work, at home, and on-line. My publisher, "Limitless Publishing," got "More Than Words Promotions" to host what they called a blog tour for my book "Bridgetown High." Unfortunately, I wasn't able to follow it, but I have been able since then. My novel received some good coverage, but I'm a bit concerned that few of the blog sites supposed to participate in the tour were interested in my genre. Most seemed interested in writing and publishing romance/erotica. Not particularly what I think of as what I like to be associated with. Still, I got some good comments on my Amazon and Goodreads sites. I hope you'll all go and see them for yourself. While you are there, if you've read Bridgetown High, I hope you'll write a review. You will be helping in the marketing effort.

In case you haven't read it yet, I promise you it will be well worth the read. All my reviewers so far have given the book high praise, most 5 out of 5 stars. Barnes & Noble has recently began carrying my book, but there are no reviews there yet, but they are a bit cheaper. I wonder if there is a way to copy the reviews from Amazon and paste them onto Barnes & Noble?

I also have gotten some great feedback from Alumni of John Swett High School in Crockett, California. In case you are unaware, that is where most of the story takes place.

The biggest concern now, is that I have no idea how well the book is selling, or not. I can't find the sales figures anywhere, Amazon or Limitless. I just hope it's doing well enough to make a few dollars, LOL.

  1. Unfortunately, sales figures reside with your publisher. You will not be able to know all those digits until you start receiving royalty statements. Which is on a schedule set by your publisher. Usually every quarter. You could ask them to share maybe?

  2. That's what I'm learning. I asked my publisher when when they will have the royalty statements. They said December 31. However, since I was published in October, I wouldn't get any royalties or a statement until March 31. So, I still don't know if my marketing efforts have had any success, or do I need to do something more.

    Thanks for your response.
