I passed not one, but two, professional milestones last night.
- I got my first 5 star review on Amazon.
- My books are now officially making me more money than it costs to produce them.
You may or may not be aware, but I have been creating these books on an absolute shoestring budget. Doing as much work myself as I can and minimizing every single cost while still trying to produce something of quality. Yesterday I got my first true assurance that I have been successful.
I am not making a lot of money, really its barely enough for a dinner date right now, but MY BOOKS ARE SELLING! People are reading them. Enjoying them, even. And I can now comfortably turn the profit from these sales into the production of more books and stories.
To everyone who is following this blog and reading my books, thank you so much for your support. Especially if you are leaving ratings and reviews. Those go a long way to helping the books get noticed and sell, which is beyond encouraging.
I’m beginning now to reach out for beta readers. The Horned Mage has at least one more book to go, plus some side stories from PoV’s other than Caleb. If you’re interested in getting an early look at these works, helping me proof them, and offering creative feedback, please shoot me an email.
And again, thank you all for your support.
Book 5 is in progress!
