Things are slowing up a little as they often do on a Sunday evening, but it's been a good weekend. If there's any last juice you can squeeze out of the tank, then that would be great. Thanks to all involved in spreading word.

Renee, another great promo!  I hit #2 in two sub categories.  Extremely pleased with 1400+ downloads and 10 sales of others in the series! (And four sign ups through the link in my book, to boot.)  Appreciate the work that goes into these.  I'm a fan.

It was an awesome promo for me as well.

I ran other ads as well. My book made it to #39 overall on the free list and made #1 in two sub cats. The number of downloads was double that of a promo I ran in July for another book (with ads but no Renee promo). I reckon that pretty much speaks for itself. Many thanks to all of you and BIG thanks to Renee.  :-*

Glad to hear it went well for some of you. We had over 16k clicks to books. Not bad for a smaller promo.
We'll do 99 cent books September 16-17.
Thanks everyone!

Hoping to join this promo with a pen name (Aden Cabro) new release. It's post-apocalyptic, but I think it fits under the broad "thriller" umbrella. It's on preorder now, due to be released 9/9, so I guess I should hold off submitting it until then.

If you have the link, you can submit now. However, if it's categorized in sff categories only, and not in any mystery or thriller, I'll pass on it.

OK, thanks, that's good to know. "Thriller" is a very broad umbrella, more so than mystery or even suspense. For the preorder I selected the sci-fi/post-apocalyptic and dystopian (not sci-fi) categories, so in the Amazon taxonomy it's currently not under thriller. "Dystopian" can include things that are more thoughtful/literary than thriller, so I might change that one before it goes live, and could legitimately choose thriller/general. If I do that, I'll consider submitting it for this month's promo.

This looks great overall. I double-check to make sure that book 1 went through, it did without any problems. I manually put it to 99 cents USD, so it should be ready for the big days.

Thanks for all your hard work on this.

Disappointed, but apparently this promo is just not for me. I don't regret supporting it every month despite rarely having a book in it, but I need to water my own garden too. I wish the best to participating authors.
