RE: KUF Ads - do they increase sales?

Is that list in any particular order, or am I just at the top because I have the nicest scent?

Do you have access to the Amazon associates sales figures Joo?

You are the mouthiest author Tongue Big GrinBig GrinBig Grin
I sorted the member list on number of posts.
Talli and Grace were just under a thousand posts, everyone else was over.

I have no idea what your second question means, so I'm going to go with "no" as the answer Big GrinBig GrinBig GrinBig Grin

As Linda so aptly put it some time ago, 'We're all taking in each other's washing.'
If someone's taken in my polka dot boxers, please can they kindly return them to me. Thanks!

Sorry. They were in such a state I donned the Marigolds and dropped them in the bin.

Hee hee - gobbiest I can handle.

I think Lou must get delivered stats on how many book sales result from clicks in threads. They'd be interesting stats to see, but I expect a magician won't reveal his secrets.

RE: KUF Ads - do they increase sales?

Well done, Joo! You're an example to us all.
The 'taking in each other's washing' comment may sound dismissive, but that wasn't intended. It's lovely to have such a supportive community.
I've read, and thoroughly enjoyed, the work of many of the author members of this forum.
The advantage of selling to other authors is that they are natural communicators. They talk about books they enjoy and may write about them, too. Many of us have blogs/websites and one of the things we post about is books.

RE: KUF Ads - do they increase sales?

Pardon me for asking a silly question, as I was distracted by Joo running off with Jonathan's striped boxers and dread to ask what he is wearing now. At least I presume it was Joo, as she is such an awesome consumer of all things KUF. (fair play)

Anyway, to get to my question: Ads, what ads? Perhaps I can't see them as I have Adblock Plus on my laptop, and never go through the home page of KUF, but is there someplace where people can see ads. (see i told you it was a silly question!) I've just disabled Adblock from KUF, so they might pop up sometime for me.
