Overseas Book Sales

Got my royalty statement from the publishers last week (this happens every six months) and it’s weird to see the number of  books that have been sold overseas.  As the publisher only distributes to New Zealand book shops, overseas sales are listed as “Export” as opposed to “Normal” sales.  I get hardly any royalties on these, but I wonder where they are all going and how people overseas know about my books so they can order them by contacting the publisher.  No marketing has been done, and apart from this blog, it must be word-of-mouth which is really amazing.  So thank you, to all of you who have read my book overseas.  It’s great to think my story has, somehow, reached you.

  1. Fascinating. Do you have any idea which countries these buyers are from?
