My human has finally tallied up the book sales for the month of December to see how much gets donated to PurrEver Ranch. As you probably remember, my human and I pledged to give a dollar for each book sold through December. Because Amazon’s Authors Central now has Bookscan data, we were able to get weekly sales figures for my books, and they actually sold very well! Since the figures were weekly, not by month, my human guestimated that in December, I sold somewhere between 288 and 299 books! Because it was so close, she added a few dollars to make it an even $300!
Of course, that is not a real check — it’s one of those giant-sized checks you see being handed out in awards ceremonies (except it is scaled to be the cat version of giant-sized). We actually sent the money over via PayPal. Of course, book sales have dropped precipitously since the holidays, so if you haven’t gotten your copy of either of my books, now is a great time to buy them!
