Summit Success, The First Week

[originally posted 09-18-2014]

Bottom Line? I have had the best "organic" sales ever for a new book release. By "organic" I mean not using under the table tactics and techniques to artificially inflate sales statistics in the hope of attracting new buyers or getting a feather in my cap to wave in the air for marketing purposes.

It was an awesome and amazing first week for my new book Summit Success: Training for Hiking, Mountaineering, and Peak Bagging CLICK HERE FOR MORE. In my recent article Amazon Author Stats CLICK HERE I showed how popular my book was in two key categories on Amazon. Part of the Kindle stats came from pre-orders.

Summit Success Progress Report

[originally blogged 14 Oct 2014] So it's been about a month now and it's been really great. I've sold way more than I expected and it's been a ton of fun answering questions and chatting with people on Facebook about this book. I finally got an awesome 5-star review and just today got a bump in Kindle sales that skyrocketed me into the #1870 position in authors for the Health/Fitness Genre. That's amazing for not having run a free promo. Summit Success Kindle Stats from 10/13/2014 I'm expecting a slew of more reviews to be coming in as more people finish this book.
