Excerpt from 30 Second Interview with….J. Carson Black
When Maggie wrote The Shop, her agent, Debora Schneider shopped it to every publisher available. Two and a half years later and each one had declined.Read the rest of the interview at:
In 2010, Maggie decided enough was enough and with the blessing of her agent, decided to self publish. Darkness On The Edge Of Town was listed in June – and sold only one book. The following month, two books were purchased. It took eight months to hit sales of 100; with 137 in February 2011.
Then things began to change. In March sales hit 1,280, and in April, she sold a staggering 10,000 books. If this wasn’t enough to make her scream with joy, in May sales hit more than 70,000 books. She was selling at a rate of 2,000 books a day.
To date (November 2011), J. Carson Black has sold over 300,000+ copies.
For her book "Darkness on the Edge of Town" it took a while to build momentum.
June 2010: 1 book sold
July 2010: 2
Feb 2011: 137
March 2011: 1,280
