eBook Sales Numbers

I have a really bad habit. Every day, I have to check my eBook sales numbers. In fact, sometimes I get downright compulsive about it. A lot of Indie Authors have this issue, because even when the number jumps by one sale, we get excited.

Frankly, checking the sales number is a waste of time. At least at the frequency that I check them. So, I've decided to only check my numbers the first of each month, starting now. The only exception to this will be when I check my sales on Barnes & Noble because I extended Taco Week for the release of Awry and B&N got it up four days late.

Once I check my sales numbers, I will post them around the beginning of each month. Don't expect huge numbers though. Currently, my sell through is very low. But I hope that changes as time passes.
