Yesterday, Whiteley Press, LLC, sold its 100,000th book. Even though I’m still in shock, I’m also incredibly grateful to every person who decided to take a chance on one of my books.
“Now we are so happy, we do the dance of joy!”
When I first made the decision to self-publish, I admit it was out of necessity. A publisher told me that if I sold 1,000 copies of Charlotte Collins, they would consider publishing it. Even though this goal was met in a few short months, that publishing contract didn’t happen.
Instead, something better happened. That book sold 5,000 copies, and then 10,000 copies, etc. And when combined with my other titles, by June 2011, Whiteley Press, LLC, books had accumulated 50,000 total sales.
Now, sales have reached a milestone I never dreamed of: 100,000! And that’s not counting the French editions of the Personages of Pride & Prejudice Collection. (I have no idea how many have sold there.)
I’m grateful and overwhelmed.
Thank you all for making my dreams come true.
