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!
