Track Your Book Sales Numbers

It's important that self-published writers keep an accurate total of their book sales. One aspect of this is the number of books sold and the money made.

I've created a Google spreadsheet for just that. This is a public document, so feel free to copy it for your own use.

Using this document, you enter the following each month:

  • Total Income

  • Total Sales

As you enter these, you will automatically see the statistics for the following:

  • Yearly Income

  • Yearly Sales

  • Per Month Income

  • Per Month Sales

  • Per Sale Income

You can access this file here: Book Sales Statistics Spreadsheet

Currently, I have spaces in there for sales during 2012 and 2013. I kept these on the same page of the document for quick and easy comparison.

If you have any suggestions for improving this form, let me know in the comments.
