    Congrats and thanks for posting this. I'll be interested in your results. I always appreciate it when people, even small fish like me, share their promo data. But I don't think you're on the prawn team anymore. BookBub (is not equal to) prawn?

    Thanks, Trish! Well, I'm certainly still a prawn today, and I have a feeling I'll be a prawn for a while yet. If all goes well, this might be the turning of the tide, but still...

    And I'm very happy to contribute my bit to the data mines. :-)

    Great! I will be checking in to see your progress. I just did a thread like this for my International only Bookbub and even though it was more than two weeks ago I'm still in the "tail" with multiple sales per vendor daily and good sell through to books two and three.

    One thing I'll mention, DOUBLE CHECK ALL your channels are discounted correctly. Somehow Amazon Canada wasn't updated even though I had changed it manually in the system and I actually missed out on the email blast to the canada list costing me a good amount of sales (I still had great ROI thankfully).

    Yikes! Thanks for the tip! I will double check them all right now. Somehow I missed your BookBub stats thread! I will have to track it down. Glad it went well!

    Good luck and have a great day on Monday! I enjoyed my BB SO MUCH, and I'm sure you will too. We expect copious updates. ;D

    Thank you, Pauline! I plan to enjoy it as much as possible. I will, in all likelihood, buy myself some very fancy doughnuts (we have a gourmet doughnut shop in town) and later in the day I'll probably make use of the scotch. ;-)

    Thank you, Andrei!

    Good luck Virginia! :) (Resisting the urge to make some reference to Miracle on 34th Street here :) )

    Thank you and, Ha! BookBub could have led with that in their acceptance e-mail. "Yes, Virginia, their is a Santa Clause. And we know this because you have just been granted a BookBub featured deal. Clearly it's too far fetched a notion to be possible otherwise." I would not have been offended.

    Best of luck! Looking forward to the results!

    Thank you! :-)

    Sounds yummy! I shall have a wee dram myself, in your honour.  :D

    A fabulous notion! I encourage everyone to do the same if they are so inclined. :-D

    Thanks, Jan! Looking forward to supplying them. :-)

    And I just realized that they will actually start popping up around 7/8pm tonight (my time) because the Aussie BookBub will land 15 hours ahead of the US one. Yay time zones! The excitement starts tonight!

    This is exciting!  :D Thanks for sharing this with us & best of luck, Virginia!

    For what it's worth, I'll add your books to my Fantasy & Magic Books newsletters. It's no Bookbub, but hopefully they'll get you a few more clicks!   ;D
    I read, therefore I am.

    ...and then my brain kicked in and I realized that BookBub doesn't send out the Australian ones in the morning like they do with the North American ones and... nothing is starting until after midnight PST. So, scratch that part. See you all tomorrow morning for the first stats updates!
