Last week I submitted Saving Grace (Katie and Annalise Series) into Amazon’s promotional program, where you sign an ebook exclusive in return for giving your Kindle version away for up to five days in order to raise your visibility to readers. I’d been hanging on the every word of some of the indie authors I look up to and wanted to follow in their footsteps. All reported that in the wake of the promos, their sales increased A LOT, and generally remained high for a considerable period thereafter. Some of them had gotten in the top 100 and even as high as the top 5 on the Kindle Free Book Lists, which provides tons of exposure to the author and book, with visibility impacts that are lasting on the Amazon engine.
Well, knock me over with a feather, but Saving Grace (Katie and Annalise Series) shot up to NUMBER ONE (1st in contemporary fiction, 1st in mysteries, thrillers, & suspense, and 1st in fiction) with over 33,000 downloads, out of a field of 55,000 ebooks!!!!!!! For all of you that helped to get her there, thank you tons!! I hope you got to download a free copy, and, yes, I hope you read it, love it, leave a review on Amazon, and buy 17 as presents for friends. Some people already have 🙂
So this is it . . .launch week for Saving Grace (Katie and Annalise Series), and the most important week of all for the easy-peasy Monday Madness funness. Since the whole world got a prize last week, there were no additional MM prizes. Want to read about what this MM prize-winning is all about? Go back and read THIS. Want to participate in the first 4 weeks? Go HERE, HERE, HERE, and HERE.
Remember: the formula for helping an indie author is . . . Read. Recommend. Review.
I’ll run my normal “fun” post later in the week.
Without further ado, here’s this week’s favor, AND IT IS THE MOST IMPORTANT ONE YET, BY FAR:
Amazon tags, review “agrees,” likes, and lists. Go straight to the rafflecopter below, and get busy, y’all!
I cannot begin to convey how much you guys are helping me. Thank you from the bottom of my heart (and prize stash)!
This week there are some wonderfully informative new reviews online, and the reviewers would be so pleased if you took a moment to check out their hard work:
It humbles me that people take the time out of their lives to read my words, and even more so when they add a thoughtful personal review like these two women. I hope you’ll comment, share, and follow them.
p.s. Did you catch all the reviews, interviews, and guest posts last week? No? Well, check them out HERE.
