Ep. 128: How Many Books Should You Expect to Sell

How many books should you expect to sell as an author?

Most self-published authors sell 250 books or less, regardless of how many different books they write. Traditionally published books sell around 3,000 copies on average, with only 250 of those sales in the first year. 

It’s rare that books sell over 100,000 copies and even rarer to sell more than a million.[1]

If this is the case, how should we measure success as Indie authors? Let’s discuss on this episode of The Authorpreneur Secret$ podcast.
