Rite of Passage has been available as an ebook for a little over a month now at numerous online retailers. You can find a complete list of where it’s sold on my Published Work page.
It has sold, so far:
1 copy via Amazon,
7 downloads via Smashwords (3 of which were free samples)
and… nada via deviantArt. I might want to re-upload it as an HTML or a PDF or something…. Maybe with some text for a proper preview of the story.
It has made, so far:
70 cents via Amazon,
and nada via the other two. For that reason, I suspect most of those 7 downloads on Smashwords were me, loading it onto my Kindle to preview it every time I fixed something.
And technically, I haven’t even made the 70 cents. If I recall, there’s a certain threshold I’m supposed to meet before I actually get any money.
I need to do more research on marketing.
Not to mention keep working on my other stories; it’s not like I could make a living off of one short story, now is it? 😉
