If the world is distracted, people don’t buy books!
And that’s understandable. When sales people evaluated trends and such and look at time of year, time of day, etc, that’s all well and good, but the factor of unexpected news or distracting world events, like the Olympics have to be added in to the mix.
The beginning of February was a very slow start for book sales, but just yesterday (one day after the Olympics ended), sales spiked again.
Just something to consider when you are planning your author-business.
Thought for the day…
Have a great one!
