GM Games June Sales Report

Here is my monthly sales report.  No new releases this month.  I've been working on getting issue #7 of The Manor completed.  I've had several requests for folks wanting to get into the zine which has been fantastic.  It's also got me to thinking if I continue to get inquires to have some sort of guidelines.  But guidelines in a very loose way.  I want people to bring what gets them excited to the zine even if it doesn't fit within the parameters of the guidelines.  I guess that will be a different post.

Interesting Numbers
  • Manor #6 has become my best selling issue in the first two months of sales.  Manor #1 sold 93 copies.  Manor #6 sold 105 copies.  
  • A total of 1112 copies of the first six Manors have been sold.  When I added the number I was floored.  I had no idea.  Manor #1 accounts for 355 sales alone.  Can't wait to get the next issue out.
Here is the break down in sales last month.
I had 45 sales.  All the print sales came from 3 bundle orders at the beginning of the month.  PDF sales trickled in throughout the month.  The PDF bundle of the Manors was the major selling point also.  It makes sense, when I bundle stuff together these is usually a cheaper price attached than buying them individually. 

Thanks to everyone for the support.  I'm hoping July will go well.  It'll be tough to get through all the 5th edition D&D noise.  And I know I'll be distracted by checking it out.

  2. Thanks for releasing this info I am fascinated by the idea of home publishing some of my ideas and it's great to see how your creations are faring. I am one of the PDF bundle purchasers that you counted last month after buying and loving issue#6. I have to say the bundle option being available for 1-5 made my impulse to purchase of #6 in may a lot more attractive.

    1. Jason, I hope to see you put your stuff out there. I put out my numbers to show others what I am doing and how I am doing. And hopefully what works for me and what didn't. Thanks for grabbing the bundle. The bundle idea came from other folks who were smarter than me. Good luck with your future projects.

  3. Congratulations on your continued success! I agree with Jason - as someone who is considering publishing some stuff from home, it's nice to follow and see what others are doing.

    1. Thanks. I'm always curious to hear how others are doing and take a peek behind the scenes. I just try to be as open as I can about my business. If it gets someone to do their own thing than I consider that a success on a different level.
