On Monday I did a promotion in which I gave the book away for free for 24 hours (since extended by one day). So far, the book is doing quite well. As of this moment it has been downloaded 2200 times. It is #5 in Romantic Suspense, and #2 in “Spy Stories and Tales of Intrigue”. It is also #119 on the Amazon free store.
I think, just based on this, that my experiment into self-publishing AT ANY COST has been a success because with absolutely no publicity, I thought I’d be lucky to see 50 units downloaded. My only promotion was to excerpt a few pages on my blog, then announce the sale on Twitter.
My only intention was to get it in readers’ hands, and hopefully some of the 2200 who have downloaded it will read it and review it so that sales will continue after the promotion has ended.
I love this book, and I think it really does deserve to find an audience that loves it too.
