    This will give you folks an idea of the numbers of sales that are possible through e-books. These writers are selling anywhere from 1000 to 168,481 copies per month!

    (no, I am not anywhere CLOSE to that sort of sales – but it is definitely something to aspire to!)

  3. I gave birth to three on the list. I am truly a proud mom.

  4. Are the sales that we report to be monthly or total sales. If so, then I’m really under-reporting!
