Sales Dashboard Use the dashboard to view a summary of units ordered and royalties earned for your titles.
Sales & Royalties This report is part of the Sales Dashboard page. You can generate and download a detailed report to view sales and royalties from any marketplace and timeframe within the past 90 days.
Prior Months’ Royalties These reports show summaries of previous months’ royalties earned, for the last 12 months. Reports are generated near the 15th day of each month and include sales that occurred within the prior month.
Promotions This report includes the performance of your Kindle Countdown Deals promotions.
Payments This report includes the payment amounts, tax withholding, payment type, and other information in a view that you can sort by sales period, marketplace, and status.
Month-to-Date Unit Sales Use this report to get a quick snapshot of your unit sales and transactions for the current month’s sales.
Pre-order Report Use this report to see how many pre-orders (and cancellations) you’ve received on each day, as well as the total for each book in each marketplace.
Prior Six Weeks’ Royalties* This report shows transactions and royalties you’ve earned over the six weeks prior to the current week.

These reports give a good guide on which of your books are selling (most popular)

I find Month-to-Date Unit Sales easiest, btw (by the way)

 

Hope this “info” may be helpful to you on the writing and publishing journey

Happy publishing

Dropped out in Godzone

18 Nov

Books by Ray Carruthers ("RC")

OUR TWO, THREE, FOUR, FIVE YEARS DOWN UNDER IN NEW

ZEALAND (KIWILAND)…AND I’M STILL DAMN WELL HERE TEN YEARS LATER!

… and LOVING it even more.

A South African’s and “exile Kiwi’s” light-hearted look at life in laid-back, provincial New Zealand. Eventually life in “Sleepy Hollow” became so quiet that we decided to write a book about it… although there were one or two adventures from time to time.

A new immigrant family’s view of rural ‘Godzone’ and culture shock after arriving from a large city in South Africa to start a new lifestyle … with a rather drastic change of pace on the other side of the world. Now six years later, no, now twenty-five, I take it all for granted…

and appreciate it even more.

Nothing much happens…

The Place of e-Books and the Future of Electronic Publishing

20 Aug

Creative Kiwis: "Write, Create, Innovate"

THE PLACE OF E-BOOKS AND THE FUTURE OF ELECTRONIC PUBLISHING
“The next information revolution is well under way…It is not a revolution in technology, machinery, techniques, software, or speed. It is a revolution in CONCEPTS.
(Drucker, 1998)

“Money is what fueled the industrial society. But in the informational society, the fuel, the power, is knowledge. One has now come to see a new class structure divided by those who have information and those who must function out of ignorance. This new class has its power not from money, not from land, but from knowledge.”
– John Kenneth Galbraith
