Maybe those downloads will lead to sales later on. I had lots of downloads on a book in Jan (not from a BB) that didn't translates into sales until this month. I feel your pain, though. Onward is right!
Yeah, I had one of those BB fails during Christmas 2013 that shone like a star for a day or two and then splut. Left me wondering what I did wrong. I parked that somewhere quiet at the back of my mind but it's still there.
I have quite a few books (especially from kboarders now) in my kindle and I can only read them one at a time. However if I see something that looks interesting, say an intriguing blurb or a concept that sounds unique, I'll download it especially if it's free or in KU. Then slowly I work my way through the virtual stack. If I find something that I really enjoyed then I'll read that author's backlist pretty much all at once. When I found one of my favorite sci-fi author's I read all 8 books in a row.
I think you may see a bump later on as people get to your backlist.
