Sixth Monthiversary Sales

These are the sale figures for my polyamorous fantasy romance novel, A Rational Arrangement. (Buy it here! Amazon ~ Kobo ~ Nook ~ iBooks ~ Print).

Sales Graph from June 24, 2015 through December 30, 2015.

(This graph is only Amazon sales, because only Amazon breaks out sales by day. I generated it in Google Sheets, though, since Amazon will only generate a graph for the last three months or less.)

Total Sales:

Pre-launch: 36
1st Month: 507
2nd Month: 292
3rd Month: 146
4th Month: 68
5th Month: 75
6th Month: 37
Total through 12/28: 1161

Average unit sales:
1st Month: 16.9
2nd Month: 9.4
3rd Month: 4.9
4th Month: 2.3
5th Month: 2.4
6th Month: 1.2

After holding steady for a month, unit sales are falling again. It will be really interesting to see how the trend for this book compares to the trend for the next book I release!

The $4.99 sale ended on 12/14, which I suspect is partly responsible for the resumed decline. I put the book back on sale on 12/26, in the hopes of catching some of the "I got a gift card for Amazon!" crowd. I hadn't planned to make $4.99 the permanent price until the serial wrapped up in March, but it's tempting to take that route now. I think I'll put it to $5.99 at the end of next week, just to see how that price point works out.

Also curious if I'll get a sales bump on A Rational Arrangement when I release Further Arrangements (planned for February, at this point). I plan to time a sale on RA at the same time FA comes out.
