On June 1st, I uploaded my new book cover for FORBIDDEN. Apparently, I wasn’t the only one who liked the new look. My sales started creeping higher throughout the day. Day 2, same result. Day 3…do you see where I am going with this?
On June 3rd I told my husband I had this crazy idea. I was gonna dream big. I mean HUGE big.
I announced that for the month of June I wanted to attempt to double my previous months sales. (This felt like a ludicrous goal, but I was determined to see it through.)
It took about a week before I started noticing the real increase. My book began to hang out around the 15-17,000 range on Amazon. Out of a million + books, I was thrilled with that. But it didn’t stop there.
Soon I began dipping into the 12,000-14,000 and was remaining consistent.
Now here is where the fun really began. I began surpassing my daily goals. Some days it was only by 5, others as much as 20 or more. I began obsessively checking my numbers, figuring out my rankings.
And then it happened. I hit a top 100 list. And I began to pick up speed. Then a second top 100 list and the snowball started gaining.
I blew past my HUGE goal with barely a glance back. And it just kept going. I couldn’t believe it. So about a week ago I set another INSANE goal: to double my double. Could I really quadruple my previous month’s sales?
Surely that was beyond my reach. But I decided to dream big again.
And guess what? I came in at 107 book sales OVER that second goal!!!
How is this possible?
YOU! Each and everyone of you who have taken a chance on FORBIDDEN and shared the news with your friends and families. I am truly blessed!
Through your amazing support, I have been contacted by so many new people, dare I say fans, who have helped to make my life a little brighter. Other authors have contacted me and we have begun networking, sharing the news of our books. The online writing/reading community is truly awesome.
If you don’t dream big for yourself, who will?
