Entreprenerd Book Sales

It's time for my monthly blog about the sales of my book, Entreprenerd. May wasn't a bad month, given that the book is now more than a year old. The most remarkable event of the past month are the extra 4-star reviews the book received on Goodreads. The book has 16 votes, with an average score of 4.38 stars (out of 5). That's a great score.

This is the same pie chart, now with more detail with respect to the sales channel:

Book Sales Entreprenerd: channels

The previous pie charts were drawn based on the number of books sold, but let's also take a look at the distribution of the revenue over these different channels:

Book Sales Entreprenerd: royalty distribution / channel

I have been experimenting with the pricing of the book. This is reflected in a chart that shows the average royalty revenue per month per channel. Currently, I get the highest royalty when people buy the paperback on Amazon. In the past, I received a higher royalty when people bought the hardcover, but unfortunately, Blurb increased the print cost of the book significantly.

The total royalty revenue is now 3,972.06 euro. As explained before, this is a result calculated using fixed exchange rates. I didn't take into account that I now get more euros for my dollars.

Note that part of the revenue I mention is "virtual". There is always a delay in payments (e.g. so that I don't get paid when someone returns the book). In some cases I only get paid if a certain minimum threshold is reached. The actual (and correct) revenue so far is €3,681.69.
