2000 Copies of The Anne Boleyn Collection Sold in Less than 5 Weeks!

Monday, March 19th, 2012

I’m spending my life celebrating at the moment because it seems that we keep keep hitting targets and reaching milestones!

On the 8th March, three weeks after publication, I was reporting hitting the 1000 sales mark and now, on the 19th March, four and a half weeks after publication, we’ve hit 2000! Today, at 11.44am Central European time, The Anne Boleyn Collection had sold 2006 copies! It’s also still No. 1 on one of the Amazon Best Sellers Charts.

I can’t quite believe it and am so grateful for the support and the way that people have spread the message – Thank you!

More bubbly for me today, I think!

Just to let you know that I am happy to sign paperbacks and Kindle copies of The Anne Boleyn Collection and can do so in the following ways:-

  • Signed bookplates – I’ve had some lovely Anne Boleyn themed bookplates printed so that I can sign them and send them out to people who own the paperback. Go to Signed Books for more details.

The rollercoaster ride continues! It’s only been just over a week since I posted that The Anne Boleyn Collection book had sold its 1000th copy and things are crazier than ever!

Today marks the one month anniversary since The Anne Boleyn Collection went live for sale on Amazon.com and at 8 o’clock this morning it had sold 1706 copies in total.

It’s still at No. 1 in the Biographies & Memoirs/Historical section of Amazon UK’s Kindle store:-

I’m obviously thrilled to bits by its success, but what makes me even happier is that there are that many people out there reading about Anne Boleyn right now! Hurrah!

1000 Copies Sold in 3 Weeks!

Thursday, March 8th, 2012

What a rollercoaster ride it has been! On the 23rd February 2012, one week after publication of The Anne Boleyn Collection, I reported the progress of the book. I had reached a high of 2,582 in the Amazon Sales Rankings and was No.6 on the Kindle Store for History>Europe>England. Well, here is a screen capture from the 7th March:-


As you can see, I got to 1,598 in the rankings and to No. 4 in the History>Europe>England bestseller list for Kindle books. I was also No.1 in Hot New Releases in that category and No. 2 in Top Rated. The book also now has sixteen 5 star reviews, which is wonderful – thank you to all those who’ve left reviews!

As it is exactly three weeks today since the Kindle version went live on the Amazon website (16th February), I wanted to share with you the sales figures. I looked at 10.30 this morning (Spain time) and the total for Kindle and paperback sales was 1024 copies sold! Over 1000 copies in three weeks! I was stunned and thrilled.

The response to The Anne Boleyn Collection has been overwhelming and I’ve received so many lovely comments and emails from happy readers, which is what every author wants at the end of the day. So, a big thank you to those who have bought the book, those who have spread the message and those Tudor history bloggers who’ve been a part of the virtual book tour I’m doing at the moment – Thank you!

The Anne Boleyn Collection Virtual Book Tour March 2012

Monday, March 5th, 2012

The Anne Boleyn CollectionToday marks the start of my virtual book tour as I hop from Tudor blog to Tudor blog (or Facebook page) doing giveaways, guest articles, interviews and Q&As. I only wish that I could do it in the real world as it would be very exciting travelling from Spain to the USA, Canada, Australia and Slovenia!

I thought this was the perfect way to spread the message about “The Anne Boleyn Collection” and also thank the Tudor history community for all their support and encouragement over the past three years. I love interacting with other websites, blogs and Facebook pages and I hope you enjoy this tour. Perhaps you’ll discover a blog you didn’t know about and make some friends on the way!

Today I’m visiting Barb and followers at the Tudor Tutor – click here. I’m off there now so do pop in!
