I’ve just been doing some analysis on that spreadsheet I’ve been putting together. I’ve managed to combine all the Amazon spreadsheets for the period from July 2012 to August 2014. I really wish I knew how to record macros that worked because I know there’s an easier way, but since I didn’t want to take the time to learn how to do it, I just plowed through copy and pasting all that data into one big sheet.
I still need to add Barnes and Noble, Smashwords, Createspace, and all the others, but since the vast majority of my sales come from Amazon, I wanted to run some preliminary analysis because I don’t plan to use any more time tonight adding the other data. I’ll do it another day.
Until I had the data split out by title, I had no idea how much money I’ve been passing up by rotating between my series so equally.
It’s actually kind of ridiculous. I can no longer justify taking so much time between the release of books in my best selling series to make time for books and stories in all my other series. I knew it, but I didn’t know it in a way I couldn’t deny. Now there’s no denying. Ouch.
Still, it shouldn’t be a hardship to spend more time on one series than another, since I love all my books. :D And it might make the next few months really interesting when it comes to income growth. I’d certainly like to see that!
