I just found out from my editor, Lisa, that The Piercing Bible was reprinted last month! She said,
"The fabulous news is that we reprinted the book last month. Not only does this mean that your royalty statements will be revving up, but also it’s good news for sales levels in general since it means we sold through the first print run in under a year."
Well, not only did we sell out the first print run in under a year, it was actually under half a year: The Piercing Bible came out in May, and it was reprinted in September! She also told me that less than 25% of those copies have sold through standard bookstores and over 75% of the sales came through alternative venues like online or specialty shops. She encouraged me:
"So all of your efforts are helping to contribute to the main piece of the sales—whatever you’re doing, keep doing it!"
I'm so delighted!!!
