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.

Here is mine: https://www.facebook.com/CGockelWrites/photos/a.157057451155709.1073741828.153359038192217/438191089709009/?type=3&theater

Here is my Tumblr post that you can Like, Tweet, and Google if you don't have Tumblr (more artsy, less spammy, does better on Tumblr): http://cgockel.tumblr.com/post/134593667758/love-sci-fi-over-80-sci-fi-and-fantasy-ebooks-are

I have tweeted and facebooked (because it's a verb now) away and I'm preparing a blog post and newsletter blast (though blast is a strong word) at the moment. Thank you very much to Patty for organizing this and C. Gockel for collating our efforts :)

Here's my FB post: https://www.facebook.com/antoniouriasauthor/photos/a.1567405426815285.1073741829.1495619490660546/1567404786815349/?type=3&theater

And my tweet: https://twitter.com/Antonio_LUrias/status/673158896249348096

Cheers!

Sorry. I just woke up.

It's my birthday tomorrow but we had a celebration yesterday because my daughter works in a hospital in the country and she is here for the weekend.

It will take me a while to catch up on all this stuff.

Not part of the promo, but did share the post to my Facebook and Google+ pages to give y'all an admittedly tiny boost :-)

OK, it looks like I've so far sold about 15. I don't have any other promos running on this book. It is in Select, though, so many people will be borrowing it instead of buying. My page reads had dwindled badly enough for me to consider going wide again, but they're now back up.

I'm really annoyed that the affiliate reporting is not giving me the real-time count. I don't know what's going on there.

I did the social media round yesterday and added the promo as part of my rolling promo article and the slider at the top of my articles repository, but forgot to add it to the news banners on my publishing and author one page sites. Omission now corrected.

I've made two sales since the promo launched, but suspect the sale on the 1st was also due to the promo page being made live. That is a deluge of sales by my standard.I hope you lot are going to threaten my status as a crustacean gamete.
