Amazon KDP now showing all-time “historical” sales in the dashboard!

Is it just me? I logged into my KDP dashboard last night and noticed a new feature – “historical” sales. This is something authors have been crying out for so it’s brilliant that Amazon have listened. It’s also great for me because I was able to count up my all-time sales from back in 2013 and realised I’d sold a thousand more books than I’d calculated previously!

Up until now I’ve been adding up my monthly sales with a calculator and keeping track that way, or, latterly, using a service like Book Tracker or Book Report, neither of which worked that well for me personally. So to be able to have this information directly on my KDP dashboard is great.

Well done Amazon!

Check it out indie authors and let us know what you think in the comments section!

Kindle All-Stars award

Just had an email from Amazon KDP to tell me I’m one of their Kindle All-Stars for November! Apparently I was one of the top 20 authors in the UK for that month in terms of sales and borrows from their Kindle library.

I’m really pleased and quite humbled. Lost for words actually!

Thank you to everyone that bought one of the books in November, I hope you enjoyed them. 🙂

I’m working hard on the next Robin book, Rise of the Wolf,  so stay tuned for more news on that in the New Year. Hopefully people enjoy it as much as the first two….
