…Authors, do your Readers (or Listeners) ‘hunt in packs’?

…I must ‘fess up, that generally, I am not a follower of the crowd… and yet, I reckon I’m certainly not an anti-social creature… much the opposite in fact… I rejoice in good company, excellent conversation, and mingling with kindred spirits, both in face-to-face meetings and on the Web… I s’pose it comes down to knowing what I like at this stage in my life, and what I don’t… it took about a thousand years after the first Star Wars movie came out for me to go and watch one… and when everyone else extols any television series, that’s usually my signal to ignore it completely… in fact the last TV series I watched (and thoroughly enjoyed) was Boston Legal, with the incomparable James Spader and the ageless Betty White… (how long ago was that, Mabel?)… but I have noticed in the past few months a remarkable phenomenon, and, not surprisingly, it has to do with my Auntie Amazon-listed books , the Jack Calder crime thriller series…. like most Kindle-present writers, I glance at my sales pages now and then… (well, okay, about five times a day sometimes!)… and what I’ve discovered is that there will be spells of a few days when absolutely NUTHIN gets downloaded… then a burst of days, often for two or three weeks at a time, when every single day produces downloads… if I knew what caused the cycles, of course, I’d start messing about with them, so prob’ly just as well I leave them alone and let my much appreciated readership carry on as they are… but I wonder if others have the same experience with their books and Audio books?… Authors, do your Readers (or Listeners) ‘hunt in packs’?… anyway, here are my links, as usual:

  1. I don’t get many sales but I have also noticed the same (in my case it tends to be related to the series. I have the first book in two of my series free, and usually, it seems that when somebody gets around to reading one of them, they tend to buy the others). I sell on other platforms and that seems to be true for locations too. Curious.

  2. Perhaps when someone reads and likes one of your books, Seumas they meet friends and tell them about it. I’ve been surprised how readers have gone back into some of my old, old posts and then commented. 🙂 — Suzanne

  3. You never know in what book club your books are analyzed…. one person mentions them and the entire club needs to buy them.
    And sometimes it just takes longer until the last person knows where the good stuff is. *grin*

  4. I spend hours wracking my brains as to why there are occasion spikes and quiet periods. Did someone mention me or my books on social media, did a few people check out my tweets, did I make a family friend or neighbour feel guilty? How the hell can you market when you have no idea what works?

  5. I keep a really close eye on all my marketing tools vs results. I check out all the combinations too but sometimes I get sales out of the blue…
