I'm doing my Happy Can't Dance Dance this morning. I finally broke Amazon's top ten free list overnight after hovering between #12-15 for a few days. This is my last day of my free run and I'm at approx 30,000 downloads so far. I wish I knew the formula. One thought I had was the categories I picked. I chose what I feel is a very popular category (contemporary romance) and one that was a bit more obscure (coming of age). I quickly shot #1 to coming of age, so I'm thinking maybe the visibility on that list helped to boost downloads. Again, these results are a far cry from my paranormal romance I ran for free weekend before last that had a whopping 1000 downloads over 2 days. So I'm also thinking contemporary romance is just more popular than paranormal romance. Finally, I've received a lot of comments about my book cover for Off Sides and I think it's probably just more appealing than my other cover. At any rate, I have no clue why Off Sides did so well but I'm continuing to study it. I've been looking at my Google results to see who is talking about the book, and alot of free promo sites picked it up on their own, as well as book groups and book blogs. I'll post about what happens after I take it off the free run.
