I'm confused. Before Liquid Silver outsold Cobblestone. Now it's reversed? Is there a date reference for this data?

Blog data is immediate, current as of yesterday. Website data is updated less frequently.

I would also note that as shown by the standard error, that is not a significant difference.

This is interesting- according to your first month vs first year, first month sales at EC are a very strong indicator of total sales per book, whereas with other epubs (I'm specifically looking at Samhain, Loose-ID and Torquere) half their sales happen in the first month, and the other half accumulates as the year progresses.

Erm... generally speaking, of course.

I seem to recall asking about the Liquid Silver data myself a month or two ago. In that, the first month sales were higher than the overall sales for one year. Which made no sense to me. But Emily explained that she doesn't have as much statistical data for the longer sales periods with Liquid Silver, thus the discrepancy once you see the "first year" sales data.

Did I get that right, Emily?
