My mailchimp is set to go off at 6pm this evening EST.  I staggered it for later per Patty's suggestion.  I have just over 1k on my list, about 100 organic the rest from the FKG, one bronze and one platinum.  They usually seem to like good deals :)

I submitted a link to the promo on voat.co (like reddit) under the subverse: indiebooks.  https://www.voat.co/v/indiebooks If you can please upvoat.  FYI: I'm the moderator of that subverse.

I sent out my newsletter with an announcement to 3,018 subscribers, started Tweeting last night, and posted an announcement on my Facebook page:

I also bought a bunch of those books because...Geez, look at those prices! :)

Facebooked, tweeted, Google plussed, tumblred and I'm about to instagram it. No sales bump for me, but this book was always going to be a difficult sell in a SFF promo with its non-SFF cover.

Arrgh, too bad. My 99 cent promo ended December 3.

When is the next promo?

A new trilogy is on the way, and it's something of a satire.

Shared on Facebook, across a couple of twitter accounts, and I've put a post up on the Genre Reader website. I'm quite low on the page, but I've definitely seen a few extra sales because of this, so thanks!

I've tweeted twice and will do another time or two, Facebooked twice and will again. No mailing list to speak of (perhaps for a future one).

My sales have been declining each day after my big pre-Thanksgiving promo, but I just reached yesterday's total as of 3:53 PM PT, so I'll declare anything for the rest of the day to be upside.

I don't really Tweet ... but I'm trying to at least like everyone Twitter's post. Even if you don't have a professional FB page you can still like and share FB posts with your family and friends.

Since my last consolidation post here: http://www.kboards.com/index.php/topic,225495.msg3170571.html#msg3170571

We've added:

I tried to like everyone's Facebook posts. I didn't share them all, too spammy! But liking them will help give them more visibility.

I don't have facebook under this name, but liked everyone else's under a different name. To spread things out, I planned my  newsletter (1,100 subscribers) and blog post for tomorrow morning. Hoping it helps keep the momentum rising!

Got a few fresh sales today.  (I also have an ad running at "Readers In The Know")

My apologies for being a digital hermit: no FB, no twitter for me.  I have the promo on my nearly barren website, where it's garnered at least 3 views (4 if you go there now).  So take this as my thank you and IOU for future payback to all the good SF/F peeps at KB, especially Patty, whose book I just bought. 

Also, if any of you want my book for free, just PM me. 

Best luck to everyone!  I'll be hawking your books old-school style.  (Telling my mom about them)
Thanks,
Q

Is there a prize for most increase in rank? 750,000 to 52,000. I sold one of this book last month. Of course, if 9 books in 2 days gets me that kind of lift, then today must be a lousy sales day.
