August has been my best-selling month ever, with almost 70 published titles across Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and, most recently, Kobo. It's been an exciting experience watching my daily average of sales take off as I steadily write and publish.
It's truly an amazing time to be a writer. For the first time in history, I can sit down, write a story, and share it with the world in a matter of hours, using only my computer. Self publishing is a new industry and it's one that I hope will be here forever. It's just too convenient to ever go away unless some seriously disconnected legislation passes through in an effort to recover 'lost' tax revenues. That's a subject for another time. This post is a celebration.
I have crossed the first major goal I set for myself when I started back in November of 2011. It was an outlandish goal. One I never dreamed I could reach. But not only have I met my $200/day goal, I'm looking to obliterate it before the end of the month. Why $200/day? It was just some crazy number to grasp after.
Now that I've reached it, though...It just doesn't feel real. It's actually possible to make a living through the work I love. While I still plan on becoming a teacher, I'm never giving up my writing. It's too integral to my life...my thought process. Anyways, here's to the future.
