Open Our Eyes: One Week

Open Our Eyes: Seeing the Invisible People of HomelessnessLast week we launched Open Our Eyes to lots of rave reviews. It’s been a busy week and very exciting because all the profits go to homeless advocate Mark Horvath and his nonprofit InvisiblePeople.tv. It’s been fun to see so many people come together to support the book.

I know it didn’t mean anything, but it was especially cool to see the book climb to #7,864 on Amazon’s sales rank and #3,680 on their Kindle store.

In reality, we sold 44 print copies and 21 digital copies. That works out to something in the neighborhood of $220 for Mark Horvath! (I’ll have exact numbers later, but the Kindle royalty figures are current through Saturday, which missed a few sales)

Those numbers may sound small, but that’s quite a launch for a self-published book. My hope is that momentum will continue to build and books will continue to sell, raising more money for Mark.

A big thanks goes out to everyone who helped make this thing possible. Now we just have to keep pushing it and build on this success. So you if you haven’t bought a copy yet, do it today.
