Hi there! When BURN FOR ME released, I pledged to donate 10% of my proceeds from release week and pre-order sales to the National Volunteer Fire Council. I don’t usually share specific sales figures but I will for this cause. BURN FOR ME sold 10,000 copies in its first week, including pre-orders. The novella was priced at 99 cents, so the total gross revenue the book generated is about $10,000. As an author working with a digital publisher and an agent on the book, I will see about $3500 of that in my royalties.
But 10% of $3500 — $350 — felt too small given the excitement of readers surrounding the book and the cause. So rather than donate 10% of my proceeds from the first week, I am donating 10% of the book’s entire first week gross sales — $1000 — to the National Volunteer Fire Council, which provides support for volunteer first responders.
