I have updated the new SALES page. I have received a few questions about the Wiggly Graph. The basic idea is that I am tracking the average sales across time. The line for a press starts when I have data for at least 5 books by at least 3 different authors. It continues based on all of the data I have for books currently available for sale and reported on within the last 365 days (a 365-day running average). The reason I am doing this is to track whether sales in general and for specific presses are increasing or decreasing over time. I hope that isn't too confusing. So far other than a gradual tendency for overall sales to drift upwards I am not picking up much. But my resolution is pretty low for most presses (send lawyers, guns and data). I have incomplete data sets for Aspen Mountain, Dark Castle Lords, New Concepts and Whiskey Creek. For any others not on the graph I have no data at all. (venglory at
