Year Two Week Eighteen

A much more satisfying week sales-wise, after a quiet period. (We have a theory that people holidaying in the northern-hemisphere summer probably prefer to take dead tree books on flights and beaches as they're less delicate than electronic equipment.)

Our leading seller this week was again RAVAGES, although the theory that 'no review is a bad review' has once more been proved correct by a revival of interest in STAGE WHISPERS.

Our average response time was steady, but not stellar, at 5 hours 52 minutes.

In addition we are delighted to say that one of the two books for 1 November publication has come back from the proof-reader and been corrected by the author and we are now in the middle of making up the e-book file. The other has also come back from proof-reading and is back with its author for last-minute revisions. We are well on course to being able to reveal details of both these books on 1 October.

And as if all this wasn't enough ... having our February 2012 books also nicely in hand, we now have two solid prospects for May 2012 (one by a returning author, the other by a new voice), and one more tentatively pencilled in for August 2012.

When we started this project we were looking at an initial trial period of two years, to see whether or not we could make a success of it. At this rate, it would probably be fair to say that we expect to be around for a little while after our second anniversary, too - fingers remaining firmly crossed!
