Flank Hawk Sales Data: First Year

For those who are interested or curious, I have the last quarter of 2009 and the first three quarters of 2010 for sales sales of Flank Hawk.

A few observations:
Print Sales = 84%
Ebook Sales = 16%

Although there is an apparent trend: The 3rd Quarter of 2010, Print Sales = 48% and Ebook Sales = 52%, the vast majority being through Amazon Kindle. Sales through Smashwords and the Nook have been minor in comparison. In any case, ebook sales began to climb in the spring of 2010.

Sales through Barnes & Noble and Brick & Mortar bookstores outpaced sales of print through in the 2010, a slight reverse of the trend from the first quarter of 2009.

I don't know what this says, if anything. But in the end, I hope all routes do well. A sale is a sale, because it means someone else gave Flank Hawk a try.


  1. Very interesting stats. I'm glad you're having steady sales.

  2. Thanks, Angie. Hope they continue through the next year!

  3. Terry, sounds great!

  4. Thanks, Cher. Certainly not a best seller, but respectable.
