    there's no way to tell what actual sales are. All the publisher knows is that it has 50,000 copies out to distributors. How many get sold to consumers is impossible to tell and is the reason things like Bookscan exist -- to try and give some general idea. But no one has been able to do so.

    Even things like the NY Times Best Seller list don't include actual sales numbers.

      Your book is making tracks, and that's all that's important right now.  

      Once in a while you get shown the light in the strangest of places if you look at it right
