I am so pleased to be named a “Rebel Ink Press Best of 2013” for the year. It is the first time I’ve enjoyed this honor.

I am fascinated by numbers and patterns. I don’t know that there is anything to be learned from the statistics but interesting to note.

Looking at 2013 sales reveals some interesting numbers.

If there is anything to be noticed as a take home message is that backlist is important. Keep writing. I suspect momentum is a key factor. It’s easier to push a train once it is moving.

Comment with your thoughts and observations. I’d like to hear what some of you math geeks have to say about this growth.
