According to this we've sold a total of 86 copies not accounting for the 5 sold at WP (they still owe us) and the likely chance of clerical error in terms of forest selling books without noting it here on the thred I reckon there is a semi-decent chance that we have sold about 96 - 100 books.

96 at £6 per book is £576.
Not quite what we spent but getting up there. (if i could remember the budget - think it was about £900 but i'd have to double check).

Anyway, not bad by forest standards and the GHB is likely to keep selling so long as we keep doing the events and keep promoting the book with massiveness.

just did a rough count. Looks like we've counted the sales of 110 copies.

This = aprox £770 accounting for the fact that some were sold for less than £7 and assuming a handful have been sold without us knowing / tracking them.

The total cost of the project was £1,150.

In other words, a year on we've made more than half the money back and we only need to sell 54 more books to break even. Which is a VERY good thing. Please try to hype the book up in the summer months as tourists will be coming through etc.
