The results of my marketing efforts.

My Kindle Nation Daily, ebook of the day sponsorship is over and I must say, it wasn’t as successful as I’d hoped. However, sales did increase and as I said before, I also got lots of exposure. So, I decided to buy two more sponsorships. One for DROP OUT and one for SILENT INVASION. Since KND now allows you to pick your dates I figured I can’t lose. This last sponsorship was on a Thursday, but the new ones I have booked are for Friday June 16th, which I figure will be the very beginning of summer break for a lot of kids so they’ll be looking for books. I also booked for June 29th which is the Friday before Fourth of July weekend. Those dates were open so I snatched them up as quickly as I could. I do recommend KND mainly for the exposure, but still, the best promotional effort so far has been the free book giveaway on Kindle Direct Publishing. It has resulted in many more paid sales mainly because I figure readers like the book and want to read another one written by me. Whatever the reason, months of daily promotion is starting to pay off. My royalties are high enough this month that I need to get a tax ID number. My total downloads for the month of January and up until February 14th (both free and sold copies) is 3,425. I’m pretty psyched about that. Since October, I’ve been selling about thirty percent more books each month. Next, on KDP I’m putting out my paperback DEGENERATES. That will bring to six the number of my books now available through KDP. I hope to add FROSTPROOF and PULP by spring. Even though both of those books are available now on Kindle, iuniverse charges way too much for copies. I’ll give readers the option of buying it direct for $1.25. Strangely enough, DROP OUT is my second best selling book behind AFTER. I guess the inspirational theme is really affecting people.

My next novel, IMAGINATION is coming along nicely and I should have a good first draft completed by early spring.
