Sales update

I haven't posted sales numbers in a while and that's because when things begin to take off you start to worry that they won't maintain and all of your energy starts to go that way.

Amazon is now where I get my most sales.  Maid for the Billionaire is still FREE and brings about 800 - 1,000 new readers to me everyday.

For Love or Legacy sells about 200/day in the US.  Sometimes slightly less.  Sometimes slightly more.  So, right now it's bringing in about $3,000 a week. My overall Kindle ranking is in the low 200s.  I don't know what they are making in the top 100....but I want to :)

I sell through iTunes via Smashwords.  My ranking is high there the romance top 10 usually....but I don't know what that means for sales. I'll tell you as soon as I know.

How long will this ride last?  I'm hoping to make a career out of this, but who knows.  I'm learning as much as I can about promotion as I go and might put up a website to tell others what I've done so far.

Either way, the money coming in is going to help this family (who lives paycheck to paycheck) put ourselves in a more stable financial place.  I don't want to get too excited, but small dreams (like being able to pay off our cars and maybe go on a family vacation) are looking possible again.

Thank you to all of those who took a risk on this new writer and have made this possible.  You've changed the life of this working mom in a wonderful way. 


  1. That is awesome for you. I'm one of those that got Maid for the Billionaire for free and have bought the rest. Thank you for taking the chance.

  2. Harlie, Thanks for the nice comment. I checked out your site and saw that you're submitting shorts. Good luck with it! :)

  3. I loved "Maid for Billionaire" and "For Love or Legacy!" I can't wait to read the last installment!

  4. OMG, I just read Maid for the Billionaire and LOVED it! I had no idea it was yours!! Congrats on your success!


  5. Thanks Victoria and Livia! I'm having so much fun in the world of billionaires :) Check out my FB fan page if you want to keep some of the fun going. People are writing scenes related to the book in my Notes and the one with the most "likes" at the end of the month wins a Kindle. It's actually really fun. I had no idea.

  6. I read Maid for Billionaire in one evening and bought your second book right away. Loved them both!!! Can't wait to read the 3rd book. Thank you for sharing!!!
