1, 100, 1000, 2500? more?
So a couple of questions I get often are: how many books have you sold? and how many books sold would be considered successful?
Well, success is in the eye of the beholder. When I started, I thought I’d be happy if I sold 100 books. I’ve been fortunate to sell many more than that which for me this was success as I believe most books don’t sell that amount.
My goal is to sell 1000 copies of The Time Cavern. I’m not there yet, but I can see that it is possible.
A friend indicated to me that success is to sell at least 2500 books whether self published or traditionally published.
