I will be out of town for April so I decided to write April's blog in this month.
Are you selling your e-books? How's it going for you? Here's another way to find out: Using software programs to track the effects on your book sales. Did you offer your book for free? Did you initiate a blog tour or launch a publicity campaign? Then you need to know what difference it made in the sale of your books. Did it spike sales or stayed the same?
Here are some programs that will help you to know what's going on with your sales and allows you to spend more time writing your books.
Programs that are free:
