Confessions of an Introvert, Book Sales Update

Ok folks, I have been lax in my own self promotion, and yet there are several great things to report. - As well as a kick in the butt that I need to get myself moving even further.

I have sold quite a few books in the first month of availability. I am quite happy with that. Through a series of emails to my contact list, an adwords campaign, my postcard mailings and the posting on the BNI site and Amazon and Barnes and Noble, I have done pretty good.

I can also report that several other online stores, including several in Europe have also listed my book. I have an Internationally sold book!

No official results are in, I get those in another month for January. But all in all, a great start.

I have made the request to iUniverse to change a couple minor typos, so as soon as that updated version is available I will start sending to the retailers and see if I can get any movement there.

One thing to note is that the more people who go to amazon.com and search for Confessions of an Introvert, the better my ranking is. For those who just want to click in - go ahead by clicking here. That will help me out, even if you don't buy the book.

Also, on the www.meghanwier.com site, I will have a PDF library soon for downloads of excerpts from Confessions of an Introvert and other publicity information, and some article about business networking, search engine optimization (SEO) and other topics of interest.

Thanks to all who support me.
