More Sales Info

I did a post last month detailing my top five sellers for the month on Kindle U.S. and Kindle UK. Figured I'd do the same this month. Why not?

*****

Amazon U.S. -- March
1. THREE'S A CROWD -- Strange Bedfellows Book 2
2. LOVE'S SPELL
3. MISS LUCY PARKER AND OTHER SHORT STORIES
4. STRANGE BEDFELLOWS 
5. WAITING

A few things to take from this. (Do check out my earlier post for further observations.) This list is pretty much the same as it was last month. Some place numbers changed and "The Girl Prince and Her Princess" dropped out (it would be tied for #6), but pretty much the same, yep. It's good to see what I am calling a "reverse effect" propelling some sales of "Strange Bedfellows." That is, books later in a series driving sales of earlier books in a series. I wonder if "Victoria's Very Awkward Love Story" (Strange Bedfellows Book 3) will have the same effect.

Two other observations of books not in this top 5. "Third" was named a Lammy finalist, and its sales have more than doubled across all platforms. I also did a price drop on my novel "Switch" ($6.99 to $2.99 for "Read an Ebook Week"), and sales on "Switch" soared (across all platforms also). I'm heartened enough to keep it at $2.99 for the time being. It's making way more money at $2.99 than it was at $6.99.

Amazon U.K. -- March 
1. THE OLD WOMAN AND OTHER LESBIAN STORIES (by a large margin)
2. WAITING
3. (tie) LOVE'S SPELL
3. (tie) THREE'S A CROWD -- Strange Bedfellows Book 2
3. (tie) MISS LUCY PARKER AND OTHER SHORT STORIES

Not much to say here except that the months-long freebie effect "The Old Woman" had is still reaping benefits. (See earlier post for details.)
