Woot! Sold 30 already!  8)

My book went from 32k to 16k. It's in Select, so I got some sales but will have page reads forthcoming.

Interestingly, I woke up to find a sale on my box set (the first book of that is in this promo). I'm going to have to contribute that sale to this promo, because that box set hasn't had ANY sales before this.

Yup. That sale was reported.

Pretty much the same for me! Went from 30K to 18K.  There were 11 sales yesterday and 2 this morning. Most from the US. I've been tweeting it and posted to FB and tumblr.

I'll send out a mailing list email this afternoon!

I've got two sales so far.  That's pretty good (i think) for a person with a zero promotion budget and it's his first book.

Just sent out my newsletter. I've got six sales this morning, and my rank is less than half it was yesterday. Patty, I shared your post on my personal FB Timeline and will share it on my author's page sometime later today or tomorrow morning to "spread the love." Working on a Tumblr Post now.

Thanks for your work on this Patty.

I tweeted, facebooked, posted to G+ and blogged. I'll be posting to another blog shortly as well as to my mailing lists.

So I went to Twitter to do a bit of promo tweeting, and found my feed awash with that distinctive promo banner! So did some retweeting, instead. :D Have also blogged and sent a mailing list shot. Will post to Reddit this evening, if no one gets there before me. Already seen a few sales. This is fun!

I've Facebooked, Tweeted, GooglePlussed, and posted on my site and satellite blogs, and my newsletter is scheduled to go out at 3pm Pacific Time to a whopping 27 subscribers (one more than last time!!!) (we all have to start somewhere ::) )

I've already sold 1 copy, which is pretty awesome considering this is my slowest-selling book. Anything I can get out of this promo will be great.

I'm getting a ton of nice fan feedback from my newsletter. They tell me I have great taste (well of course hehe) and that they love all the book THAT I CHOSE (hahah) to offer to them :) Thanks Patty... you made me look good, and that's hard to do! I hope all 10k don't email me though. I always have to answer... gulp.

Not much movement yet, but I am still hopeful.

Thanks again for setting this up, Patty!

15 sales and counting ... not bad for a "free" promo at all!

People PLEASE post your Facebook posts so we can all share and like them. This is very important ... it allows us to mess up their Algos to our advantage.
