Hitting the magical 'best seller' number

In the world of niche books, as mine all are, the likelihood of a book written about Witchcraft selling millions of copies is slim, if non existent.

The general numbers for 'mainstream' book sales seem to vary, but I have seen a number of sites quoting:

"Most publishing studies reveal that a new book, on average, will sell around 250 copies and no more than 2000 copies in its lifetime."

If that is true, then I am incredibly humbled as most of mine are far above those numbers. Obviously we are not talking within the realms of well known fiction authors!

In the world of Pagan publishing, there does seem to be an unofficial 'magical' target of book sales to be able to call a book a 'best seller', that special number of sales is 5000.

I am very proud to say four of my books have already passed the 'best seller' threshold (in fact Pagan Portals Moon Magic has now sold well over 11,000 and Pagan Portals Kitchen Witchcraft isn't too far behind that number). The book sales figures I have also don't include those translated into other languages as I don't have those numbers.

Now I can add a fifth book to that list - Curative Magic has passed the special 5000 sales number and can be called a 'best seller'.

Huge thanks to everyone that has purchased my books and continues to do so, I cannot tell you how much it means to me.
