The sales figure chart has been pretty stable for a while now. Currently it is:
First month: 181 copies
First year: 335 copies
Total to date: 415 copies
Total to date (after at least one year): 531 copies.
The leveling out is partly because the data set is getting larger and so new additions have less of an effect on the average. But I also think that increased demand is being matched by increased supply, so the performance of the "average" book has been fairly stable over the last six months or so. The major differences are seen in the relative performance of different presses.
While I am always interested in receiving anonymous sales data from authors (veinglory at gmail.com) I am going to start identifying a 'publisher of interest' that I am particularly interested in adding to the data set. My current publisher of interest, although I hesitate to lift the Tupperware lid on that particular can of worms, is Dark Castle Lords.
