But then the waiting begins!  I'm heading into day 9, I think.

I think I'm on day 10 of waiting now. I didn't actually think they'd take the full two weeks to tell me lol

Got the top three nominated, good luck guys.

Been a full week since my campaign ended. All this waiting is really starting to get to me

Congrats Rita! I knew your book would be chosen!

Got the top three nomimated. Waiting to hear about my book is killing me!

Dumb question: t what time on the last day does your campaign stop? They seem to start first thing in the morning, so can I assume they stop first thing in the morning too? My campaign ends on March 12 which would be the 31st day, so I'm assuming it cuts off at 5am that morning or something? Does anyone know?

From what I can tell, new books come on and old books leave at 9pm PST, so midnight EST. Book stats update at some ungodly hour of the morning for some reason

Thank you!! I have you nominated as well! Good luck to us both, huh ;) wow, this month went fast, didn't it?

Thanks so much! Haha yeah it really did, I can't believe it's about to be over.

Well, that's really good to know about headtalker. I was going to try it, but no one really seemed to think it gave them that much traffic, so I don't feel like I missed out on much. Of course with only 3 days left it's far too late to start one lol. Maybe I'll try it out next time.

Added the top three to my nominations:)

My book only has 11 days left. I can't believe how fast this month has been going by. I feel like I just submitted it.

Interesting. How does Amazon even know if the person reviewing knows you personally?

Lincoln's book references a 50/50 mix, but I think it depends on the number of total page view/votes you get. I know of one book that had 6000 page views -- I can't imagine having 3000 external people vote for it. My first book had a ratio of 61%/39% (it wasn't picked) and my current one is on day 3 with a ratio of 77%/23% on day 3 with 373 page views. (Though, I haven't told my friends and family yet. Saving that for the sagging middle.)

Okay cool thanks for the info. When does it normally start to sag? i've yet to advertise to friends and family either and I wasn't really sure when I should start.

Do a web search for 'Snowflake Method'. That's what I used to do when I outlined: you basically start with a one sentence description of the story, and expand it layer by layer until you get bored and start writing.

Just want to chime in and say this is how I started too

Do most people usually have a lot more external views at the end of their campaign compared to kindle scout views? I'm just wondering what I should be looking for. Mine is pretty even right about now.
