I’m a Paid Author Now

On Sunday my first novel Walk of Shame was released.  If you have been following my Writer to Author Diary you will know that I have uploaded my books to Amazon, iBooks and Kobo.  I also tried to upload to Barnes & Noble but because I live in Australia, they did not want my business 🙁

So since Sunday I have been too scared to check my stats, because I don’t expect much and by checking the figures it reinforces my low expectations.  When I finally got up the nerve to check for sales, I only checked iBooks, and sadly, no sales.  I have had downloads of my free short story, but no paid downloads of my novel.

Tonight I decided to check Kobo and Amazon.  Kobo has had some free downloads of my short story, but no paid sales.  But Amazon!  I have sold SIX books on Amazon! Do you know what that means?  It means I am officially a PAID AUTHOR!

Now I know that selling six books is does not a career make, but heck!  I’ve sold six books!  So yeah, I’m going to celebrate that and it encourages me to keep going, keep working, keep writing.
