Sales and Sadness

I’ve decided that March isn’t a very good month for me. Dad died March 1st and my daughter, Megan, died on March 28, 1997. It’s hard to believe that 15 years have gone by. As my grieving process still continues, I do find joy in writing. I believe God used Megan’s death in turning me into a writer. As bad as my personal life seems right now, there is some good news.

March sales held strong!! So far I’ve sold 264 books and have had 60 borrows. I had another free promotion on St. Patrick’s Day and had 650 downloads. Although excited about the strong sales, I have noticed the sales trickling down, and I’ve fallen from Amazon’s top 100 for the first time since January.  It’s been a great 3 month ride and I’m praying that it’s not over yet. I need to start finding some ways to promote more. With all the personal issues, I’ve let that slip a little.

I’m working on edits for my next Christian, contemporary romance “Unforgiving Ghosts.” Hopefully it will be ready buy May. I’m also researching and working on an outline for a sequel to “Unwilling Bride”. Not positive of a title yet but I’m thinking “The Unwanted Bride.”  It’ll be the Un series!! Just hope I don’t undo all my hard work and make some of the same mistakes I’ve made with “Unwilling Bride.”

Isn’t it funny that my sales are still good even with the blunders I’ve made. Kind of wonder how many more books I would have sold had I not accidentally uploaded that unedited version during the 3 day free promo. Guess I’ll wait and see how the Lord uses that!! One thing I know, God always uses things for good even mistakes and sadness.
