Kindle Dierct Publishing Results 4.0

So, I decided to do another free promo period through the Amazon Kindle Direct Program for my young adult novel, Girl Band.  It’d previously been free several months ago and did all right, with my main advertising being through my friends Facebook.    Because it’d already been through the promo period once before, I had no real intentions of getting a big boost out of another one, or of generating any sales for my other books.  Instead, I planned to use this promo period to do a multi-stage advertising process, to gauge where the sales were coming from.  Of course, any results I got would obviously be tempered by the fact that Girl Band was already free once before and so a number of potential buyers would already be out.  On the other hand, there were lessons to still be learned, and I was not afraid to learn them.

Another New Cover

Well, three of four covers are complete, the newest is at left for my novel While You Were Here.

It’s hard to summarize what the book is about but basically it’s about a couple in an already-bad marriage that is made worse when tragedy strikes.  The book follows their lives for 25 yeas after the tragedy, showing how each deals with it and how there are two ways you can go when presented with death: you can either give in and let it be a weight on you that drags you down, or you can realize life is fragile and use your time wisely.  On the one hand, I know the book sounds depressing, but on the other, I know it’s really not.

Anyway, you can get it on Amazon here for the Kindle or in paperback, but if you’re going to get it in paperback, buy it through Createspace, because I make more money from those, even though they are the exact same book.  In any event, don’t be afraid to get th ebook, it’s less than a $1, which isn’t all bad.

Also, I promise that a real post is forthcoming.

Hey, Buy This Book

Hey there, if any of you regular readers get tired of reading what I write without paying for it, don’t hesitate jumping over here and choosing from a selection of my books.  They’re all available for purchase, including my brand new novel, Fish Out Of Water, available in both paperback and ebook form.

BTW, how about this post being my 100th on this site and it being for shameless self-promotion.  I’m wondering what 200 can be.
