Also sold more of the other titles today than I did all of last week, which pays for the BookBub ad.
Also seeing an increase of visits to my web site and a few mail list sign ups.
I'm happy with this.
HOLY CARAMBA! That's got to be a record.Nathaniel Burns said:Pride and Honour - The Battle for Saxony was free 11/22 - 11/25 and got 45,671 downloads
No. I certainly don't. I would say that Bookbub is one of the few places where it is worthwhile to shell out cash. It isn't cheap, but for the results it is well worthwhile.belindaf said:Interesting results. Does the thread feel BB does better for FREE books than those on sale for say, 99 cents? I've considered BB, but I think the cost is just too high. Like others, I haven't had great luck with paid ads and I am reluctant to shell out that kind of cash.
Whoa.BBGriffith said:Here's the Bookbub lineup I just got in the mail today:
Paricia Wrede (NYT Bestseller)
Anthony Summers (NYT Bestseller)
Michael Wallace (KB Stud/WSJ Bestseller)
Carl Hiassen (NYT Bestseller)
I think the traditional publishers are fully on the Bookbub train now. Pretty impressive. I think it's going to get more and more competitive to get listed.
I was accepted twice, Jan '13 and December '12. Since then, I've gotten rejected twice ... for one of the same books, more than seven months apart. So I don't know. Qualifications have changed I guess.Grace Elliot said:Do you need luck or persistence to be accepted by Bookbub?
I've applied twice and been rejected twice.
I'm wondering how they decide which books to choose.
I hear you there! Just got a 2-star review for 'too many difficult names and places to remember' Uff-da.Quiss said:And, ahem, congratulate me: I just received my very first one-star review by someone who objects to having the book start with action (all of my books do).
That's always the danger of doing freebie runs, I guess, and the main reason I'm worried about trying a permafree title.
