Releasing Entreprenerd

Last week, The Book Shelf fixed the last typos we found in the proof copies of my book Entreprenerd, and we also finalized the eBook version. I decided to do a soft release over the weekend. It usually takes some time for the different sales channels to publish the books, so I used a strict order.

Proof copy of the paperback version

I decided not to release my book Entreprenerd before I received proof copies of the hardcover and the paperback version. I'm still waiting for the hardcover, but I received a "Not for Resale" copy of the softcover today.

Entreprenerd Website: April 2021

Something changed, and I don't know exactly what. I know that it was unusual for a newly created website to have about 400 visitors on weekdays. I considered it a success, but I couldn't explain why the website had so many visitors from the start.

On Tuesday April 6 however, the number of visitors dropped with about 300 visitors a day.

Entreprenerd Website

I've been very busy creating and fine-tuning the Entreprenerd website and I'm quite happy with the first results. For two weeks now, the site succeeds in attracting about 400 visitors a day (on weekdays).

Promoting the book "Entreprenerd"

I've been discussing the details of the book layout for "Entreprenerd" last week, and once we have made a final decision for the fonts, typesetting can begin. I don't have an exact release date yet, because I don't know how long the proofreading round will take, but in any case: the release of the book is getting closer and closer.
