Since I finished the draft of Questioner’s Shadow, I’ve been working on some software to track my book sales. The problem, of course, is that I’m selling my books in multiple places, but each place has its own format for reporting sales, and it’s quite frustrating to try to load them into a single spreadsheet to try to get any idea of what’s going on.
Thus, I wrote TrackerBox, and I’ve released it so that others suffering the same problems I am can have a solution to their problems.
TrackerBox imports data from Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Smashwords, CreateSpace and ARe. As soon as I get sample spreadsheets from other vendors, I will add them and put out an update.
TrackerBox handles multiple authors and pen names. Other solutions I’ve seen don’t.
TrackerBox can sort and group data by any column, and has easy to understand charts that give you an idea of what’s happening without having to look at lots of numbers.
And, just like with StoryBox, I will update TrackerBox as fast as humanly possible if problems are found. Some of you know that I’ve turned around StoryBox issues in less than a day.
TrackerBox is available at StoryBoxSoftware.com and has a 45 day free trial. It requires Windows XP SP3, Vista, or Windows 7, and the Microsoft .Net 4.0 Framework (a download link to the framework is on the TrackerBox download page).
