Happy Saturday!

Hey guys;

Just been looking at Amazon & Kindle sales ratings as of 10 am today.

Amazon currently has 36.6 million books on sale!

Kindle has 1.99 million books on sale.

Jack Ketch's Puppets showing in top 1.5% of all books, and all Kindle books...

Leicestershire Myth & Legend in top 2.5% of all books and all Kindle books...

It is a really satisfying feeling to realise that you are selling, I just want to say thank you to all of you who are making that possible!


  1. Really good to hear the books are selling well, congratulations Phil.

  2. Thank you Martin; I have enjoyed writing the book, and it has inspired me to plough on with number two in the series, which is coming along very nicely, and hopefully will be ready for first harsh edit in a month or so...

  3. Congratulations. I find the prospect of selling on Amazon at first very scary. But maybe it is not so bad. These are both your own books, correct?

    1. Hi Lacey; Yes, the first of a series. Once you get started it's great fun, but at the same time you'll get comments about the fact that self-publishing is not the same as traditional publishing. The fact of the matter is, if you are selling, someone is reading your books and hopefully will come back for more. Amazon is convenient and is so accessible worldwide! Good luck with yours. Are you using Createspace?


Those voices in my head...

The voices inside my head have finally started, once again. I have been struggling with how to adapt the work I have already under...
