Fourth Monthiversary Sales for A Rational Arrangement!

I thought I'd do this on time this month, just for contrast with the third-month anniversary. These are the sale figures for my polyamorous fantasy romance novel, A Rational Arrangement. (Buy it here! Amazon ~ Kobo ~ Nook ~ iBooks ~ Print).

Sales Graph for the last three months.  I may stop including a graph on these posts, given that I can't give the Big Picture in one image any more. Also, I could just say "It's a line dropping by 40-55% per month" and that'd give the right general idea.



Total Sales:

Pre-launch: 36
1st Month: 507
2nd Month: 292
3rd Month: 146
4th Month: 68
Total through 9/28: 1049

Average unit sales:
1st Month: 16.9
2nd Month: 9.4
3rd Month: 4.9
4th Month: 2.33

The sales drop-off picked up a little speed, declining 54% over the last month. Non-Amazon sales dropped to zero this month (you're letting down the team, Kobo/B&N/iTunes). Amazon finally had a zero-sales day, on October 17th. Surprisingly, that remains the only zero-sales day, despite a string of days with one sale.

Still psyched that RA broke one thousand sales this month. \o/ I can't believe that many people have found and bought my book. Go, little book! Be read!

As mentioned earlier this month, RA will go on sale on November 6. I am curious to see if that will affect overall unit sales! haikujaguar's experience is that November/December/January is generally a good time of year for sales, but I don't know if that will impact me, given that I only have one book out. (Still plugging away at my next book!)

Tune in next month to see if the approximately 50% downward trend continues!
