Every month I have to do a spreadsheet for the blessed Inland Revenue or whatever they're called these days. I also keep a running total of all my book sales. At the end of this month I cracked 20,000 Kindles. As my books are also taken out as library loans from Amazon I've also had the equivalent of another 10,000 Kindle sales (rough figure as it's an estimate from pages read) and a measly 400 paperbacks. These figures may not be earth shattering compared to some 'bestselling' authors but last year 'Jacaranda' was an Amazon best seller in the 'travel adventure' category so I can claim to be one anyway. So to all my readers - thank you. (next novel in about two months).
