As many of you know, in an attempt to promote some of my shorter fantasy titles, I recently (June 22-26) held a six-day sale of three of my short stories: Sword of Kings, Assassin, and Seven Into the Bleak. I thought I’d give an analysis of what I was aiming for, what I achieved, and some of the lessons learned.
That’s what I have to say after seeing my fantasy short Assassin reach #1 in Historical Fantasy and #2 in Epic Fantasy on the Amazon “free” lists. With your help, I’ve reached some stratospheric levels after just under 2 days on my Amazon free sale.
Thanks again for everyone’s amazing support. Please avail yourself of this sale…it ends at midnight Pacific Standard Time. If you enjoy what you’ve read, please consider writing a review. This page will give you the direct links to some great websites to do so.
This has been a great ride and I can’t wait to see what the sale will bring tomorrow and the next on Seven Into the Bleak, the last and final story in the sale. Stay tuned!
Thank you to everyone who downloaded and reviewed (or will review) SoK…I am really overwhelmed right now and can’t tell you how much I appreciate the support!
The next two day sale–of my short story Assassin–has just started (12 midnight EST) and goes for two days as well. Details will be posted very soon!
I checked the lists (of course) around 7:30 a.m. EST and was tickled that SoK has made it to #1 on the Epic Fantasy list. My hope for the”cascading sale,” as you might have guessed, is to keep the first story buoyed up by this amazing support from readers…while my second and then third story bounce up as well.
It’s not out of the question to have all three in the Top 5 of Epic Fantasy at the same time if things fire in the right order. I’ll be writing an analysis next week of the experiment. Fingers crossed!
The following post began life as a how-to email I sent to a writers’ group I belong to, the Northern Virginia Writers Club, after several non-techy members expressed frustration over trying to get onto the web. It seems a bit redundant to post this bit about WordPress on a WordPress site…but of course any number of people could stumble across this blog via a simple browser search, with no knowledge of why my site is hosted on WP.
This is a very light, quick introduction into why I chose WP for my site and blogging needs. Feel free to ask questions in the Comments section to clarify anything I glossed over.
