A year in retrospect

Well it’s not been a bad year overall. I've had two novels published, Fangtooth and the second book in the Prosper Snow series, Killers. My short story collection, Voyeurs of Death was republished with the added bonus of extra stories and I also had a couple of short stories published, one in Holiday of the Dead and another in 13: Tales of Dark Fiction. On top of that I was promoted at work.

As far as sales are concerned they are not as impressive as some peoples, but they are probably better than others. For the year across the whole of my books I sold 1726 copies via Amazon, 326 copies via Smashwords and just over 500 sales from other retailers, such as Barnes and Kobo (this doesn’t include those sold by Dark Regions Press as I haven’t had a sales report from them yet) for a grand total of around 2552 sales for the year.

I’m now working on a new novella, which I hope to finish the first draft of in another week or so. Then I’ll start work on another novella that I had put aside for a while, which will keep me busy into the start of the New Year.

Now I want to say a big thank you to those who have read my work over the year. And an even bigger thank you if you reviewed it, regardless of whether the review was favourable or not. There have also been a number of people who have helped me promote my work this year, and they get an even bigger thank you.

Now I’m all thanked out, so I hope everyone has a fantastic Christmas and an even better New Year.
