..a lotta little makes a lot… same with book sales…

…hiding yer light under a bushel is okay if yeez are into deflected interior decorating illumination… but for quill-scrapers, that serves little or no purpose… make no mistake, I am fervently anti-spamming… however, it behoves every scribbler showing any of their wee masterpieces out there in the public domain, gently, gently, to let the WURLD know of their presence… faint heart in promotion never won fair downloads… it seems that the onset of the Christmas Season has tempted loadsa trumpeting of books on the internet with the Great God Amazon bulging with literary goodies… I have no objection to any of that, but my thoughts are that p’raps an overcrowded marketplace is hardly the best venue to attempt to get yer sales figures up… my preferred methodology, Mabel, is merely to continue to mention my stuff periodically … as per usual… NUTHIN out of the norm… business as, etc… with past Noel book-flogging opportunities, this ol’ Jurassic has noticed no appreciable deviation in the off-take… neither spiking nor troughing… indeed for the past month, I’m gratified to record a regular modest daily sales charting… as with anything, a lotta little makes a lot… same with book sales… of course, if Mister Claus and his elves suddenly conjured up a tsunami of buyers for my WURK, I wouldn’t turn my Scottish snout up at it… but realistically, let me continue to see the pace as it currently is and I shall be a happy chappie… I’m never averse to allowing my covers to speak for me on these blogs, with the requisite buying links, and these are dutifully listed below… purchase if yeez please… or not equally if yeez so please… I’ll still LUV yeez!… in the event that the Internet gets taken out by North Korea over the remnants of this festive-tide, let me wish all of yeez in advance, of whatever denomination or creed,  a safe and healthy end of year, a Happy Christmas to those who celebrate it, and a prosperous 2015… and to all my Author buddies … go sell gazillions!… see yeez later… LUV YEEZ!

  1. I tend to back off promoting just before Christmas. People are busy. There is always a flurry of buyers just after Christmas when people are using their new devices. My best Ereader News Today promo thus far has been in January.

  2. Wise advice Seumas. Just think of all those lovely gift certificates given by family and friends clutched in the hands of book lovers. Also, people may take back gifts they can’t use and buy books with the refund. There are all kinds of possibilities. Sales may be better after Christmas:) Happy Holidays to you also! 🙂
