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!
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 🙂
