Due to the Amazon promotion sale, Indie sales have been scarce this week.  But I finally ended up with 5 sales, which was very slow.

So how many sales did you finally end up with?

Monique,

Do you get a normal KDP book count on a free book?
Yes, the appear as units sold.

How I wish they were really sold!

In the last 4 days I've "sold" over 35K copies.

Gotta get that sequel out! There'll be 35 thousand more people dying to read it! (I already am)

You are so wonderful! :)

I'm working a patootie off to get it out. Still some work, but getting closer! I recently (before the freebie) put an excerpt in the back and that seems to be paying off.

A measly three books this week, and this with a brand new title out (which hasn't sold one copy so far)!  I think I'm just about to give up.  Very discouraging.

48 which is a slow week. Maybe the heatwave is having an affect.

I think I got about 15. On a more positive note, The Charitable Baron is performing better than expected at Barnes & Noble. *shrug*

Monique,

So how do you get Amazon to email a heads-up to those 35,000 people when the sequel debuts? I wonder if the "series" option in KDP has any effect.

I wish I knew! You might be right that series option has a link in the "people who purchased X might be interested in Y" sort of emails and promotions, but...

I'm releasing the sequel to The Last Pendragon (The Pendragon's Quest) in September and I uploaded a new version of TLP the other day mentioning that the sequel is coming.  Other than broadcasting on Twitter, FB, and my web page when the time comes, I don't really have any better ideas of how to let people know.
