Pegasus Pulp just passed the 100 sales threshold. This includes all books and all platforms.
For anyone who cares about a bit of statistics neepery, the platform breakdown is as follow:
Amazon.com: 64 percent
Amazon UK: 20 percent
Amazon Germany: 3 percent
OmniLit/AllRomance: 6 percent
XinXii: 4 percent
DriveThruFiction: 3 percent
So Amazon sales clearly dominate for me with 87 percent across all Amazons. But I’m still not doing KDP Select, because the other platforms are holding their own, even if they are only in the 3 to 6 percent range at the moment. Besides, non-Amazon platforms allow readers who need other file formats, readers from surcharge countries, readers from countries where Amazon does not operate at all to purchase the books. For example, today’s 100th sale was an epub sale at OmniLit/AllRomance.
As for the books themselves, here is the sales ranking:
- Outlaw Love with almost a third of the total sales
- The Kiss of the Executioner’s Blade
- Hostage to Passion
- Rites of Passage
- The Other Side of the Curtain
- El Carnicero
- Countdown to Death and Flying Bombs (tie)
- The Spiked Death
- Letters from the Dark Side and “He has come back to me…” (tie)
- The Apocalypse Protocol, Shape No. 8 and Whaler (tie)
What do we learn from this? Historical fiction sells a lot better, at least for me, than other genres. Readers really like lesbian westerns. Readers like pirates, whether historical or fantasy, as well. The Silencer stories sell in similar numbers. Unfortunately, those numbers are low.
