When I last reported on my 4-day FREE sale of A Reason to Live, I was sitting pretty at #23 on the Mystery & Thriller list, just across the aisle from my good buddy Stephen King. Of course, he was on the paid list and I was on the free, but that’s still pretty wonderful company to be keeping.
What I didn’t tell you was that, to reach #23, I had given away about 2,100 copies. That was less than I’d hoped for, but the ranking was nice and when thousands of people download my book, I still get a thrill.
That’s when I made my appeal to you all to tell your friends and family about the sale. Well, over the next twenty-four hours I gave away 10,000 more copies for a grand total of 12,551. This took me up to a scintillating top ten ranking (#9) and I couldn’t be happier (well, I could: you can’t help but think “if those had just been sales instead of giveaways…“).
Post free bump sales are chugging along at less than 1% of my giveaways, but are still more than I’ve sold in a day by a long shot. If this is a hint of the future, I’m ready for it!
Thank you for all your support along the way!
