Spark Check


I think I’ve turned invisible.

January was a good month of sales. I made 1.5 sales a day which topped my goal of one sale a day. Amazon and Itunes were way up while All Romance was way down. I even sold 4 copies of Rapunzel: Stay at Home Mom which was a big surprise to me. In my experience, if a book isn’t part of a series, it goes no where.

But now it’s February. I’ve had one sale. The audience for my pen name blog has disappeared. Even on this blog, I had a resurgence of interest in January. My post about Little Women and Pride and Prejudice got a lot of attention. But again, everybody vanished this week.

Can you see this post? 😉

Anyway, I’m still writing. 5200 words so far for me this week. I’d actually like to make my goal of 15,000 for the first time this year. We’ll see Saturday what’s happened.

How’s your writing week going?

  1. Who said that?

    Argh, sorry about that. I blame February. Why? Because I hate the month and I think lots of others do to. Hope things improve.

    Busy week so far for me due to me finding a critical mistake in my timeline. I started attaching real dates to my chapter headings as I am working along a real historical timeline. Lo and behold I missed a day. Not too much needed to fix it surprisingly, but I am glad I found it. The missed day was an actual lull in the action so it kind of justified itself why I missed it in the first place.

    • LOL 😛
      Yeah, February always gets me too.
      Glad you found the missing day. When I’m doing my holiday stories I end up using a calendar. The romance happens within a month, so it’s important to track all the high’s and lows. She might break up with him on Friday and be back together on Sunday 😀

  2. I agree that February is weird. It’s this weird gray (and pink) gap between sparkling winter and the green of spring.

    BTW, I feel like I’ve made a critical mistake in my timeline in real life all the time.

    I can see your post, Melinda! I got the email and meant to answer right away that I could see it and then stuff happened (see the previous paragraph).

    I hope sales pick up. I’m sure they will. I think this is the time of year when everybody is paying for Christmas and they’re not spending much elsewhere, but it will pass.
