Sales Track Stats

Today marks two weeks since I submitted a query on The Shunammite Woman.  I have revised my novel The Vanishing Shed and now it numbers 84,400 words, not much reduced from 85,000 words.  After another read through I'll decide where I'll submit it.  I have given away two more copies of my religious publication which I did via CreateSpace to two folks in our congregation.  Its title is In Remembrance Of Me.  I only paid a bit under four bucks for each print copy of that and am selling it for five dollars.  I wanted to show you the stats of my novels/anthology below.  I don't have the figures on the actual sales via the publisher, only my own efforts at selling them.
The Silver Dart                                      seven copies
In Remembrance of Me                        four copies
2014 Summer Anthology                       three copies
A Change of Heart                                twenty-one copies
Actually, I do have records of some of the sales beyond the above numbers.  Some kind folks downloaded the ebook version of A Change of Heart.
My mother, Stella Hammersley, passed away almost eleven years ago and I have her book on which she worked fifteen years gathering information and photos for it.  Its title is White River Memories.  It has gone through numerous printings via a copying shop in nearby Bloomington, Indiana.  She sold it down through the years and now I'm selling it.  This is a non fiction book about Williams, Indiana.  It covers the local school at Williams which I attended grades two through twelve.  The school burned down and was rebuilt in 1944.  The school's first graduating class was 1911 and the last class was 1963, my sister-in-law, Brenda graduating that year.  My wife graduated in 1957 and I graduated in 1956.  The book contains all the available class photos and information about the small town of Williams where I grew up.  It is available from me and the local museum in Bedford, Indiana.  I have copies if anyone is interested.
