Yes, the publisher told me. This corresponds to a specific draw of 2 500.

So far: 5 000 + 3 000 + 3 000 + 3 000 + 2 500 ...

Phone exchange with my publisher. I took the opportunity to ask for the sales figures:

- sales bookstores (including FNAC, Amazon ...): 11 600 sales ["less than 10% of returns, it's very good!"]
- France-Loisirs took 4 000 (they manage separately, it's the model that was sold to them, it is they who shoot, broadcast, etc ...)
- I sold 1 000 directly

One more comment on Amazon ...

Just right for the photos - but it's not the same price! A choice ... If we disseminate photos, we must print everything on the best paper and especially with 4 machine passages, well set. It is therefore much more expensive.

I really like the "understand before acting" because it was exactly my intention: to explain rather than give recipes.

Ah Super....

It seems to me a very good sales figure right?
Especially for a book of this kind

She gave you comparisons to other books present or past in the same genre?

I have a little researched the subject: beyond 5000 it would be a best seller whatever the category, so in the garden you are a Phenomenon ... : Mrgreen:

Distribution of sales by sector

In terms of value and volume, the three main editorial categories that dominate the market are literature, with nearly a quarter of sales, followed by youth and practical books.



If not a small topo of the market "garden" in the broad sense (except literature)

sales, on average, for a first novel vary between 500 and 800 copies.

So this is a best seller :!:

I confirm. My editor told me: "You are one of the few authors who exceed the 10 000" ...

I know Louise Helmstetter by her book. She is a gypsy who married a Helmstetter very close to my home village, so probably a distant cousin, but I did not know. At the end of her life she lived in Barr, 15 km from here. A book about a life quite amazing! Character"...

Many solutions

- There are some who live on it ... and therefore who shoot everything that moves ...

- It can also be an opportunistic editor's command and the Chavanne in question is perhaps the nickname of a negro.

I will be curious to know if all the lunar calendars give the same dates and what differentiates them between them and that which changes in the accompaniment of the said calendar year after year
