Previous Note from eBook Manager…

I found a previous note from my eBook Publisher about a program several of my children’s ebooks were included in, and thought I’d take a look at updated numbers.

The ebooks were part of a program donating children’s ebooks to teachers in underprivileged areas… This note was from 5 years ago, so I looked at the updated numbers today (even though I don’t think the program is still happening…).

The top ebooks shared most often, with updated numbers:

The Magic Word – 10,243, Manner-Man – 4607,  Gimme-Jimmy – 2512,

Peter and the Whimper-Whineys – 1336 and Santa’s Birthday Gift – 1472

Note received:  “Hi Sherrill.

No, you are not competing with yourself. Teachers get copies for the kids in their classes and Amazon donates Kindles for those kids. The large numbers mean that the teachers find your books to be written well enough to use in the classroom. If anything, I think it speaks to how good your books are. If you have an outlet for promoting your titles, you could use those large numbers to let people know well received your titles are in the program. I don’t know if you can use the …program name without permission, but you could say that x number of copies of your books have been donated to underprivileged school children around the world and are used in classroom settings. I think that would be OK to say without violating any copyrights. If you add up all the free give-a-way copies from the last year or so for all your titles, it should be a pretty high number.  Just a thought.”

 

Nice Review for Peter and the Whimper-Whineys Coloring Book

Nice Review from Linda Weaver Clarke

What I love about this coloring book is how your child can read a story and color. On the left side of the coloring book is the story. On the right side are the pictures to color. That makes it fun for your child. I gave this to my eleven year old who has Marfan’s Syndrome because he is going into the hospital for an operation. I know it will entertain him because he can read the story and color. The story is all in rhyme, so that makes it extra fun. —Review by Linda Weaver Clarke
