Amazon really seems to be on a roll and just opened yet another new Kindle store in Canada. This really would appear to be a no-brainer, but apparently not. At any rate, Canadian readers can now buy all Pegasus Pulp e-books at Amazon Canada. Links will be added to the individual book pages once I get around to it. And yes, I know I keep saying that, but Amazon is opening stores faster than I can edit the book pages. Never mind the problem of updating the prices of 29 different e-books to match those at Kobo before the price-matching bots strike.
What is more, another book of mine hit a bestseller list, this time at Amazon Spain, for Under the Knout is:
- n°5 en Tienda Kindle > eBooks Kindle > eBooks en idiomas extranjeros > eBooks en inglés > Literatura y ficción > Cuentos
- n°8 en Tienda Kindle > eBooks Kindle > eBooks en idiomas extranjeros > eBooks en inglés > Ficción histórica
- n°8 en Libros en idiomas extranjeros > Literatura y ficción > Cuentos
I’m directly under Philippa Gregory and Paul Auster respectively as well as next to Hugh Howey’s Wool, too, all of which is very good company to be in.
Meanwhile, I also realised that I neglected to publish my November sales figures. So here they are:
In November 2012 I sold 26 e-books across all platforms, making this our second best month ever. The detailed breakdown is as follows:
Amazon UK: 4
Amazon Germany: 6
The trends of the past couple of months continue. Amazon.com sales continue to grow, Amazon UK sales have recovered a little, but are still only half of what I sold at Amazon UK in summer. I strongly suspect that seasonal buying patterns are different in the UK than in the US and that British people tend to buy more books in the summer. It’s probably that whole vacation and beach reading thing.
Meanwhile, Amazon Germany is outpacing Amazon UK for me. My sales at Kobo are steady at 1 book per month, while OmniLit/AllRomance suddenly reappeared after several months without sales.
