Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

I hope everyone out there is wearing their green today, I know I am!  This past week, life has been handing me one tough blow, one right after the other. I’m still standing but holding on for dear life. I’ve been slacking on my writing duties but I need a little bit of a break here and there to fix other things going on!

Today on Amazon, The Last Dawn is once again FREE for its Kindle version. It’s starting off at #8,230 overall and #62 in its genre, let’s see how far up the rankings we can get it today!!! My Leap Day promo was a huge success in my book and I’m looking to top it!

Spring Break

It seems like Spring Break came a lot earlier this year than I remember from previous years! Although it has felt like Spring here in Texas for a few weeks now, it still seems too early. This year is already flying by!

I’ve been away for awhile as I take care of some personal business and work on some assignments. I have been way too distracted lately and I need to refocus on what I need to do.

My blog tour starts in 8 days! I’m super excited and still putting together the final touches. March 20th – Keep that date in mind!

Upcoming Interview

Today I finished questions for an upcoming interview with Nandini Deka, so be on the lookout for that when it goes live. I’ve just been keeping busy writing, like always. I already have tons of outlining finished for my next project along with some things here and there for other ones. I was out of commission Saturday when my computer DIED! I don’t know how it happened but all of the power supply inside and out fried :/ Thankfully, the night before I backed up all my work!!! And, I just backed up my back up so I should be set for a little while. I had a friend take out the hard drive and he’s going to see what he can rescue (if anything). I had tons of music and pictures on there that I’m really hoping he can recover. But, we will see…

Thinking about running another free promotion for The Last Dawn on St. Patrick’s Day. The promo on Leap Day really boosted its rankings and it is still doing fairly decent but I’m going to try to make it better!

Just about 2 weeks until my blog tour kicks off! As a reminder, here are the hosts who are going to make it all possible:

  • March 20th – Green Bayou Novels
  • March 22nd- Wren’s Writing Nest
  • March 26th- A Bit of Dash
  • March 28th- Mandy Anderson
  • March 30th- Kate Policani

I’m excited to get this thing going with some wonderful ladies!

Yesterday Was Exciting, Today, Not As Much

I do have to say that yesterday’s free promotion on Amazon for The Last Dawn was pretty successful. My goal for the promo was simply to get my book out there to as many readers as possible. Before going to bed last night, I tallied up the numbers and here were the results:

  • #691 out of all Kindle books
  • #15 in the Fantasy/Futuristic genre
  • 332 copies downloaded worldwide

I’m sure those numbers ended a little differently at midnight but I was too tired to stay up that long. With those kinds of numbers, I really wish I was getting paid royalties! Today, my numbers are back where they were before but that was to be expected.

Last night I began outlining my next novel. It is currently untitled and at the very beginning stages. I will share more details about this project at a later date but I’m super excited!

Enrolling in KDP Select Was a Great Idea

It has been a week since I first enrolled The Last Dawn in KDP Select and it seems to be paying off! Throughout February, I kept seeing my ranking slip further and further into oblivion. As of Monday, my book sat at the #447,073; pretty depressing. I logged on to check my stats this morning and my book is currently sitting at the #6,034 spot! Now, today I do have The Last Dawn advertised as FREE for a Leap Day Special so I’m sure that has something to do with its ranking. Since midnight, 69 copies have been downloaded!!

Needless to say, I’m pretty stoked 🙂
