March 2012 e-book sales figures and a couple of neat links

First of all, I’ve been interviewed by writer Jess C. Scott at her site.

What is more, a new month has begun, which means that it’s time for the monthly sales figures. In March, e-book sales picked up a little after a truly dismal February. They could still be a lot better though.

As a result, I sold 11 e-books across all platforms in March 2012. The detailed breakdown is as follows:

Amazon.com: 5
Amazon UK: 4
OmniLit/AllRomance e-books: 2

And now for some neat links:

SFF writer Richard Parks has a great post about the ever changing literary scene and how even reaching ones goals usually doesn’t take one exactly where you want to be.

Agent/writer Nathan Bransford takes on the question whether digital self-publishing is a bubble and answer no, it isn’t.

Meanwhile, the New York Times reports about some very young self-publishers, namely kids in their teens.
