Bloated Goat Sales - 7 Months

Well, here are my current sales numbers for Bloated Goat after roughly 7 months. This includes Kindle, Nook, and Smashwords. I'm very happy to have passed 350 sales, but as you can see, my sales have really dropped off from the holiday rush of December/January. I think I have a few negatives going for me:

1. Until a week ago, I only had one book for sale. The second being a short story collaboration called Twelve Worlds. This limits my exposure, and makes it easy for Bloated Goat to fall off the rankings.
2. Bloated Goat is a children's book, which I have found doesn't sell as well as other fiction in the e-book world.
3. My book cover isn't professionally done. It was created by my wonderful daughter and I love it. It justs seems raw and cute and perfect for the story. But, I'm sure some readers would look at that and pass it over.

  1. On point #3, I'll say I've seen plenty of "professionally done" art. Content, Context, Intent...
    (or, it looks just as good, if not better, than many of the so-called "professional" works....)
