I remember when I first saw that sign touted by McD's. I was amazed. How could 1 million burgers be served? That's a lot of food. That's a lot of people. That's a lot of money!

Now, of course, that 1 million served is nothing.

Well, now I urge you to take a look at the million seller club on Kindle. There are a few indie authors in that. Right now, it's a big deal. For each author in the club, at least one million copies of their books, spread out over several titles, have been bought and paid for by paying customers. Mostly satisfied readers who come back for more. One million sales.

Can you imagine?

Thing is, regardless of what the naysayers say, such as Russell Blake and others (sorry if you're a fan of his), that one million sales mark will one day be no big deal. It'll be "normal" for any author that's been out for any length of time and has several titles out to hit that one million sales mark on Kindle.

I predict that, despite some saying the heyday for Kindle indies is over, it's just beginning. Sure, maybe Amazon changed it's algorithms. So what. So we have to adjust our Method Of Operation and figure out how to crack the great Amazon again. So we have to adjust our status quo once again. Such is the nature of business. Such is the nature of life.

Wouldn't it be worth that to make it into the million seller club?

I don't know. Maybe you don't have any desire to make it into the million seller club. Maybe you just want to sell to family and friends and then you'd be content. Personally, that's not enough for me. I want to make enough regular sales to have a cover artist and editor on retainer. Or at least give them enough business where they can substantially supplement their regular income by working for me. Well, the editor would have to work full time for me. That's all there is to it, lol. Then I'd have to have a lawyer on retainer to keep myself out of legal trouble, haha.

What would you do to make it into the million seller club? Would that club be worth it for you to spend that much energy and effort? Even at 35 cents a pop...multiply that by one million...do you realize that's $350,000? You can earn, cash in your pocket or electronic figures in the bank, $350,000 dollars to spend of your own free will by selling one million copies of your work at .99. Is that appealing to you?

And if you manage to sell one million copies at 2.99, that's barely over $2,000,000 when you figure that you'll make slightly over $2 per copy sold.

Personally, I'd take either of those amounts. But that's just me. And I'm greedy.
 
Well, I could imageine that if Michelle Bachman gets the oval office, she may turn society as know it, on its head.

Would that be good or bad? 

Well, obviously for some it would be very, very bad.

For others, the normal citizens like you and I, it should be very, very good.

See, I don't know about you, but for me, "the good ole days" means when the economy was trucking along, when people trusted each other more, and when people weren't afraid to be friends.

When I could walk down to my neighbors house, knock on their door, and ask for their daughter to come out and play. There was no fear. Well, ok, there was fear, on MY part because I was asking this beautiful female to come out and play with me. But, I sucked it up and did it . . . most days.

See, our doors weren't locked, but we had respect for each other. They didn't come up and walk into our home uninvited and we didn't intrude in theirs either. Yet, their daughter and myself could joyfully go out into her front yard or behind their house and romp in the feild, or explore their trees, or find hidden treasures in what our parents called junk. In those days, junk was the rusting cars sitting around, or the little trinkets that moms had in their old jewelry boxes that they no longer wore or used.

My neighbor and I would sit down, side by side, talk quietly, laugh joyfully, and dream in wonder of what awesome adventures these vehicles had been through and what the little trinkets had seen in their lifetime. We could spend an entire day exploring these treasures.

The wonder of the good ole days. You know, when gas was less than $1/gallon, sodas were a quarter, and going into town was an advernture.

Well, some of that could be brought back. Bachman has promised $2 or less for a gallon of gas. Would be wonderful. Now, if she could just bring back the wonder of our childhood, but that's not government's place. However, Troy could very well help trigger those memories for you when he takes over the world's financial system.
