Well, after Monday's huge, earth shattering premiere of my new kindle-only novelette I learned several things rather quickly.
* That "if you build it, they will come" thing might be true for baseball fields, but if it happens for ebooks it might take a bit longer than two days.
* Speaking of slow, my book description had a small typo, I quickly updated it and 48 hours later it still hasn't changed. Weird.
* I bought and read the story again. It's weird, what I put up was way more awesome than what I read. I think Amazon monkeyed with my file to make it more lame. It's the only explanation I could think of.
* That single sale, from myself, put me up to around #100,000 on the kindle sales chart. which could only mean there were nearly a million other books that sold nothing that day.
* I can't one hundred percent confirm this, but I'm pretty sure that Cindy Borgne was my first sale (Edit - as Mike pointed out in the comments below, he did purchase a copy as well, it is possible that he was the first person to purchase. It's only fair that I thank you both). Thanks Cindy, for throwing me that bone.
* I spent about 4 hours staring at my stats page, hitting refresh every 15 seconds or so. I could have cared less before I put the thing up, now, each hour that passes that I don't have a sale I take it personal. I need to just get over that. It was an unexpected feeling from me. I'm not used to feeling entitled to stuff.
* I'm glad I've got that under my belt. But I do have other commitments. I suppose I need to get to work on those.
Um, that's about it I suppose. I hope everyone is having a good week.
