Ever since mid-January my sales have done nothing but nose-dive, in particular are the sales of Town Secrets. Even though it is permafree, it was moving between 30 and 50 copies a day, and in turn the other books in the series were selling because of that. Sales dropped to 12 one day, and then up to 18, then down to 9 and up to 15, so I started investigating my keywords.
I invested in Kindle Samaurai first, and even thought it brought me quite a few ideas, none of them have helped at all. I tried that for about a week, then I bought Kindle Spy. I tried those for a couple of days and the same thing happened.
Next up is to try another cover, I guess. That means I have to come up with something, but I don’t want to change it until after my Bookbub promotion in February. That will give me a good sales boost, but we’ll see what happens after that. If they don’t stay up, Ill change the cover and see if that helps.
The gold rush of self-publishing is definitely over.
