The last few days have been pretty exciting around here in book land. Well, exciting in that teeny-tiny fish in the big huge ocean that is Kindle books on Amazon kind of way.
As you know from my previous post, I had been experimenting with using my free promotional days on Amazon, and it was going pretty well. Really well, actually. In the end, Dusk Gate: Seeds of Discovery made it all the way to being the #72 best-selling free book on Amazon.
The promotion expired at midnight last night, Pacific time, and my fun little book is now back among the ranks of paid Kindle books on Amazon. And I’m still having trouble staying in my chair today, because …
Well, let me start with a comparison. Last week, before the free promotion, Seeds of Discovery had been consistently ranking somewhere above #200,000 in the paid rankings on Amazon all of this month. And before today, the highest it’s ever hit has been somewhere in the high #20,000.
Today? Well … right this minute, it is number 2,270 overall.
It is also #41 in Contemporary Fantasy.
And #84 in Children’s Science Fiction and Fantasy … yes … 83 books below The Hunger Games.
We’re celebrating here tonight. It’s a small celebration, sure, but big for me!
And a huge, enormous, monumental, earth-shattering, THANK YOU to all of you who have supported me, and read the blog, and taken a chance on picking up the book. The success is really yours.
