Thank You

A BIG THANK YOU to everyone who helped make my KDP Select promo for HIGH a success. Because of you, HIGH made it to #2 on the Women’s Fiction list and #4 on the Contemporary Fiction list. Also, I finally made it into the Amazon Best Sellers Rank (Top FREE 100) and made it to #57!

I’ve recently heard that doing a KDP Select 2-3 day promo is better than doing a 1-day promo. Partly because you’re giving readers time to spread the word about your free book. Makes sense, right?

Below are the results from three of my KDP Select experiments. The first two were for 1-day promos.
February 20, 2013
Total FREE downloads: 740

February 23, 2013
Total FREE downloads: 1,644

3-day KDP Select Promo:
August 2-4, 2013  (Friday-Sunday)
Total FREE downloads: 4,969

Yikes. You just gave away 4,969 FREE eBooks! You’re right. I did. But that’s okay. The whole point of the promo is to get my book into as many hands as possible and hopefully, create a buzz. Besides, I was thrilled to see HIGH climb the charts. 🙂

So what happens next? Well, hopefully more reviews and more sales.
