March 2022 was the worst month in terms of sales since my book Entreprenerd was released. I only sold 9 copies. Adding the 4 sales in the first 9 days of April, I have now sold 411 copies in total.
So far, I've sold 224 eBooks, 89 paperbacks and 98 hardcovers.
Amazon is now responsible for 48.2% of all my sales (versus 47.5% last month). That percentage doesn't include the hardcover version which is distributed through the Global Retail Network. The actual percentage may even be higher.
The royalty per book per channel per month doesn't vary that much anymore.
The monthly royalty revenue dropped from 109€ to 50€. I already made about 25€ in the first 9 days of April, but I am really looking forward to a bigger deal in May.
Although Amazon is responsible for 48.2% of my sales expressed in numbers of copies, it only accounts for 41.2% of my revenue in royalties.
My total royalty revenue for Entreprenerd is now at about 2,610 euro, of which I've already been paid about 2,310 euro. I use the word about because I get reports in different currencies (euro, American and Canadian dollar, rupee...) but I convert that revenue using a factor that is constant (while the exchange rate changes from day to day).
Now that the sales of my book have dropped that dramatically, I am considering increasing the prices so that I get a higher royalty for each book. I will introduce this change in a couple of weeks. If you still want a copy at the current price, you will have to hurry.
