November 2011 Sales

The numbers weren’t so bad this month. I had hoped to have Kiss My Axe out in November, but it was delayed. I have the final in hand, but I’m waiting for the proof copy of the print edition before I release it. Unlike Sword Noir, I want to release the PDF and print editions of Kiss My Axe simultaneously, especially since so many people request print.

Gifts of the Elder Gods was meant to be SEP’s last planned release, and was scheduled for the first quarter of 2012, but with KMA delayed, I wanted to put something out in November to keep SEP’s visibility relatively high. It may not worked out as well as I would have liked, but we’ve had good numbers for the last week in November, so it might be doing its job.

December should be interesting, with the release of Kiss My Axe. I hope it will perform as well as (or even better than) Sword Noir, but I honestly have my doubts. Since its release in April of this year, Sword Noir as earned $958 against a budget of $1350. That sounds great, except the numbers are down lower than expected (I had hoped for at least 10 sales per month). If we continue forward with only 4 sales per month, it’ll take another two years to get into the black. I had projected two years total, so that would be one third longer than anticipated to make a profit. Not good.
