Hey thanks, Dana. If I've handled Crimespace "masterfully" from a marketing standpoint I'm sure it's only because I've been a member of the site since its inception and genuinely am part of the community. To some extent it's not marketing at all: I'm simply excited about this new avenue open to authors and want to share my experiences. This is one heck of an opportunity, ebooks, and I was lucky enough to get in on the ground floor.

 

It's such an opportunity I'm seeing self-pubbed authors throwing up crap as fast as they can now. I think it'll only hurt them in the end. I don't think it'll hurt self-pubbed ebooks in general, though, as the filters already in place are too efficient, and they'll get better with time. Quality is still the key.

Sweet. You might be my role model. I like the understated way you've promoted this book. You've been active in discussions, and never beat us over the head about it. I don't know what you've done elsewhere as far as promotion goes, but, to me, you handled Crimespace masterfully. (Said one of the 15,000, with your book on the TBR pile. Hmm, can we still say TBR "pile" for a Kindle book?)

Thanks, Benjamin. Details, sure. I've self-pubbed three thrillers, but one, Frame-Up, was taken down at the request of our agent after selling 1,200 copies when my coauthor and I decided to market it to major publishers. The Prophet Motive has only recently started to sell after garnering its first review on Amazon. It's at about 300 in sales. My big seller is Crack-Up, which has sold about 13,500. February was another milestone in that total monthly earnings surpassed four figures for the first time.

Congratulations, Eric!

 

Were they self-published? Which one sold the most? Details, man!
