Oh my gawd, what a big freaking day it was on Hunger For Justice freebie day. I was like a proud mother as I watched the ranking soar through Amazon. I went to bed with the ranks at twenty something thousand and woke up to a message by the great and wonderful Jennifer all excited that it was soaring.
By mid morning (here) Hunger For Justice was #3 Teen Romance & #7 Romantic Suspense.
Can you imagine my celebration dance? Not pretty, but funny and exciting none the less.
So now its two days later and I have picked up some sales which by research will gradually build, but some asked if it is worth it.
Well I gave away 1650 copies in total and yes that's sales I lose in a way, but you have to look at the whole picture. HFJ is book#1 of a Trilogy. This means that an extra 1650 readers might pick up Heart for Justice which is book #2 and then maybe (hopefully) book #3 Blood of Justice.
I'm sure you've heard the saying you have spend money to make money, well it is similar only zero outlay. It was one of the best advertisements you can get.
So now I sit back and I plan for the next promo in time for Heart For Justice release and see if it pays off.
All in all, I'm happy that 1650 readers out in the world have a piece of my baby and if they like it they may share the news and BANG, I have a readership.
Right now, I need to keep writing and you need to keep reading ;)
Happy reading and writing,
