With the help of the wonderful crew at https://www.draft2digital.com/book/ I have achieved the next target I set. Not only did they break the curse of 7 sales but last night at http://www.barnesandnoble.com/s/alan-place?store=nookstore&keyword=alan+place the sale of "Forgestriker" enabled me to sell my TENTH book of the month.
While I don't expect the sales to continue at this rate -- it would be nice if they did -- here is a comparison to consider. On Amazon it took me all month to sell six copies and in the short space of three days on D2D I have sold three books. Now, you see the advantage of being on a book site opposed to a retail giant, so, if they refuse to put books from D2D on their shelves with the advantage of Apple and B&N I lose nothing.
Thank you Kris and the crew at D2D and B&N from a happy writer.
