My Kindle Sales Pick Up

Well good news and more good news has been the theme of my children’s books on Kindle in January. I was pleasantly surprised at how well Mattie Monster is NOT Tired has done both with its cheapy 99 cent price and initially as a free download, where it climbed to #1 for Free Books in Chidren’s Science Fiction and Fantasy.

Yes, take a realistic plot line and substitute a monster as the main character in place of a human child and voila…. you’ve written fantasy. So I took the snapshot below of Mattie’s moment of glory. And yes, I’ve started talking about Mattie as though he is real, which is good for my writing (he’ll be in a sequel) but not so good in terms of proving my sanity.

Meanwhile, The Day I Met Dr. Seuss has gotten reviews from unexpected sources, such as this one from Irene Taylor at My Book Blog: Ebook Reviews who wrote that

This ebook is a fun, quick read, that captures the rhyming cadences of Dr. Seuss. It would make a great read-aloud for any age or grade level. This story would be especially timely for teachers who are celebrating Read Across America Day on March 2 - a day that celebrates both reading and the birthday of Dr. Seuss.

Wow… compliments and new potential audiences for my book rolled into one review. How psyched am I? Pretty psyched.

I asked Irene how she happened to hear about The Day I Met Dr. Seuss and she said that it was highlighted on: The Kindle Buffet, so a quick shot-out to them. Thanks.

How they picked up my free day, I’ll never know, but I’m very happy they did.

Gotta run!

    Being on the #1 spot for top 100 free books is really awesome. I think you already got a large number of readers. It’s really a good strategy to have it first for free to test the number of readership.
