I hadn’t really thought about it all that much, but a recent Kindleboards forum topic (a great resource for writers, by the way) brought up the idea of milestones in writing and publishing, so I had a look back over my ever-growing collection of spreadsheets, and realised that I had hit one of those milestones last weekend; at some point in the wee hours of Saturday morning (at least over on my side of the Atlantic anyway!), I passed 1,000 sales of The Tattered Banner.
With that in mind, I just wanted to say thanks! To everyone who has bought it and read it, thanks for taking a chance on it. I really hope you enjoyed it, and feel that your investment of time and money was worth it. Good, bad or indifferent, I’m always interested to hear what you think of it, so feel free to drop me a line to share your thoughts!
To the book bloggers that agreed to take a look at The Tattered Banner and take the time to write a review, thanks! I’m pretty sure I’ve thanked you all individually, but it bears repeating. Reviews are absolutely vital for any author. It’s common knowledge that most book bloggers that are open to indie authors get swamped with submissions. I’m sure that can get tedious, but you guys are vital for new authors, so I hope you keep giving the new guys a chance, and I really appreciate you taking the time to give me a chance!
Edited to add – I should have included a thank you to everyone who has left a review, not just the book bloggers! I really appreciate the extra time you’ve taken to leave one!
