This month is turning out really well so far. My book sales are much better than they have been for ages. I think there are a number of reason for this. I think we are getting closer to Christmas and it is likely that people are starting their shopping early as they may be worried that they may have less money available to them later in the year. I think for some people they have started spending money again after stopping for a few months because of all of the credit crunch warnings. i also think that there are less people selling the books now because the profit margins on them are so low, this means that I have less competition. It is probably a combination of all of these reasons and more, but whatever the reason, I am linking it!
I have also found a lot of extra writing work so far this month. I do find that there is more towards the end and beginning of the month which I think is due to it being nearer to pay day. I also think that the fact that I have extra time to concentrate on looking for work, due to the boys being in playgroup has helped me to find more opportunities. I just hope that it continues!
