Our world is becoming so very tied together now, it seems if we make a major blunder, basically everyone with a twitter or Facebook will know about it in less than five minutes. If readers don't like us, it will take no time to watch the fire of word of mouth spread. While the internet is an amazing thing...it's still word of mouth (fingers a typing) that drives it all. So that being said...once people found out I had a free book...man did they ever go hog wild on the downloads.
Suddenly I felt like my book was a Wonka Bar! About every 15 minutes another 100 copies was downloaded. All I kept thinking was..damn what if this was paid? This must be what it feels like to be J.A. Konrath, lol. Anyway before the end of the first day I found out...I had cracked the coveted Top 100! There was my name at #49! Not only had I got into the Top 100 I was in the Top 50!
For some this is like Kindle Lottery...it makes their books take off. My first time I didn't make it into the top 100. First time I only saw 1505 downloads. This time I was 73 shy of 7000 downloads. WOW.
I have to give the bulk of that credit to ENT. (Ereader News Today)
with their amazing 240k followers on FB, they really made a difference. I am hoping the sales will continue. I have to say even for the Free Store it sure does feel good to be one of the writers that got to experience that!
Thank you everyone who grabbed a copy, shared a link or retweeted me! Now most importantly...I hope you like the book!
