…the writer’s backlist… the gift that keeps on giving…

…I can speak only for this ol’ Scots Jurassic scribbler, but sense that hordes of my fellow-authors will agree, that selling even one copy of one title is a source of great satisfaction… to feel that even one single reader has taken time and invested money to indulge my work is such an immense pleasure… over the years since I was first absorbed into the mind-blowing vortex that is the world of writing books, the reading public has blessed and honoured me with more than 100,000 aggregate downloads and sales of my wee literary babies… like many of my contemporary successful writers, I pretend not to pay much attention to my author’s sales pages on Auntie Amazon Kindle, but that would be a blatant lie!… what marvellous repeated surges of excitement they create when sales keep ticking over…

…this week has witnessed a flurry of downloads across all my titles, which just continues to blow me away… the writer’s backlist… the gift that keeps on giving… equally splendid is that these sales are not restricted to one Amazon Kindle market, but are spread across the globe… the wonder of the Web’s international reach is phenomenal… furthermore, it drives home to me the efficacy of having a backlist… having more than one title accessible is the best advertisement for each individual novel, or non-fictional production… it’s a natural human trait to continue to reach for more books by a specific author if you like one of his or her works…

…I know that I certainly do that, and become even more immersed in that author’s output… and it answers neatly the question writers frequently ask when they finish writing their first tome, ‘What do I do now?’.. the inescapable response should always be, ‘Now go and write another one!!’… see yeez later.. LUV YEEZ!
