I'm sure that I'm not the only author out there who keeps track of sales. Simply seeing more readers finding any of my books is worthwhile and rewarding. While I can't quit my day job, the people that find these works might be positively impacted, and for me that's more than enough reason to keep writing.
I admit I have slacked since my arrival in Italy. Between the living environment and just being in the right frame of mind, nothing has been written since last spring. I hope to change this at the dawn of the New Year. There are notes jotted down, pasted to my walls. I'm reading Luza and Riley in route to the States with the plan to get book three and four underway shortly. Actually book three is four chapters in, but I want to see if I really want the series to go in that direction.
Shifting back to the reason for this update, Luza has overtaken Running With Vince in total sales. As of this morning Luza has two more copies sold then RWV. Of course book sales are relative, but as both are so close to the 2000 copy mark, it's a good way to begin this holiday season and be thankful.
If you haven't read either book you should. For those that have, there are follow-up books in both series.
