Thank You For Your Support for Ukraine and Yemen.



Thank you all for your support in my April 20 Bookbub International Featured Deal Promotion for The Billionaire Brotherhood III.  From your purchases, I was able to make the above donations:
 Ukraine - Cdn $90
Yemen    - Cdn $60

Here are the sales details:

Sales, April 20 and extended to May 19, 2022 - US $392.20
Proceeds, $392.20 (sales) - $152 (promo cost) = $240.20
My commitment, 50% of proceeds (my profit) to charity = $240.20/2 = US $120.10

Actual donations:
Cdn $90 to Ukraine (US $72) - Buys 2 large first aid kits with supplies and medicine for                                                       those wounded in the war.
Cdn $60 to Yemen (US $48)   - Feeds a family for a month.

Total donations                         - Cdn $150 (US $120)

Well done, team (my readers)!
Through your support (through your purchases), we did much better volumes with the June Bookbub promotion, with sales of 2,048 units/ $614.40 on promotion day (June 7).  However, please note that proceeds/ profits were US $614.40 - $966 =  - $351.60 (loss).  However, I will see if, even after promo day, some more sales come in.  If so, although the promo was for June 7 only, I will see if I can break even within this month of June.  If I do, and then make a profit, I would still be able to make a donation to EMPower Projects, even if smaller than I had hoped.

Tell your friends about the book and let's keep pushing to make a profit which can be shared with this worthy cause!

I'll give you an update at the end of the month.

The results are in!

Thank you all for your support in my first 'Pay It Forward' Promotion, where 'The Billionaire Brotherhood, 9 - 12' was promoted in the Bookbub International newsletter (outside of the USA) on April 20, 2022.  Because the numbers in the region (outside of the USA) are usually much smaller, instead of just the promotion day, I tracked the sales for 30 days - until May 19, 2022.  Here are the results:

Amazon -                     $202.40

Draft2Digital -               $85.55

Kobo -                            $63.71

TOTAL                        $353.62

Less promo cost          $152.00

Proceeds                      $201.62

50% to causes             $100.81

To Humaniti                 $50.41 (can feed family of 4 for 3 days)

To Unicef                     $50.41

Donation announcement June 30.

Note: Amazon pays authors 60 days 'in the back' (60 days after sales)


Next 'Pay It Forward' effort - June 7, 2022 Feature on Bookbub.  The Billionaire Brotherhood Books 1 - 8.

Let's blow this one out of the water!!
