Title: Excited! freebie promo going well
Post by: Jessica R on August 15, 2014, 02:31:04 pm
I released my book (The Obituary Society) three weeks ago, so I could send my freebie promo dates to blogs and hopefully get a few reviews going.  I had BK nights do a promo and got around 130 sales/KU downloads in the 3 weeks.  I set BK up to do a promotion for my free days as well.  Yesterday I went camping (the funny part of the story if you know me).  Today was the first free day, and I came home anxious to see where I was at.  I'm over 2000 downloads now, #454 in free books.  So excited!

Yay! I didn't realize it was out until I saw it in one of the emails today, then I snatched it right up! I've been looking forward to it since you posted the cover here. Good luck!

Ranking #47 in free kindle now.  Can't believe it.  A little nervous cause after this comes the part where I (hopefully) get a few more reviews and find out if people like what I wrote.  I got a two star review just before this, so of course I was convinced I should have never put pen to paper.  This biz is a roller coaster.

Congratulations. That's fantastic. I grabbed a copy, too. I can't wait to read it.

I thought you were onto a winner with that blurb. It's gold!
