…an important list for Authors…yer back list…

’time’ gets blamed with, and credited for many things… the lack of it can be exasperating… deadlines not met can create havoc and angst galore… meeting train, plane and bus schedules still has the ability to confound this ol’ quill-scraper occasionally… running out of travel time to airports, train stations… yeez all know the thing… as a spotty youth in exam rooms at school, the clock hands seemed sum’times to spin around quicker than a Scotsman accepting a free drink… on the flip side of all of that, however, there’s sum’thing called ‘longevity’… the passive art of just continuing to breathe for year after year… living as I currently do in the Middle East, I took possession of my free Camel Pass a while ago, so the wrinkles of age are kinda showing themselves these days… the benefits of having lasted thus far can be found… I’m an admitted Jurassic-come-lately-to-self-publishing, but still, I’ve now clocked up a few years at this scribbling gig… nuthin approaching ol’ Charlie Dickens or Billy Shakespeare yeez understand, but I do have more than one masterpiece title to my name gracing the pages of the Great God Amazon… for the first time yesterday, I checked the mix of the Amazon Kindle sales over the last 30 days, then over the last 90 days… the new wee squiggly charts are an eye-opener for that… and, behold and lo, it dawns on me, at last, that having a back list of my Jack Calder crime thriller series is now paying off… the sales for the first two titles, The Violin Man’s Legacy and Vengeance Wears Black each are almost on par with those for the latest offering, Savage Payback… it underlines for me, at least, that part of the continuing duty of promotional activity that I think all we scribes are recommended to do, is to put as much emphasis on the back list as on the current babies… I hope that helps more of yeez Lads and Lassies of Blog Land, pals all… see yeez later… LUV YEEZ!… the babies:
