CHASING MY OWN 15 MINUTES OF FAME
Now, my book Thicker Than Water (Brands Crossing Series) has been listed on Amazon, Barnes and Noble and Smashwords since July and has really generated few sales.
Based on my friends’ experiences, I temporarily unpublished my book on Smashwords and signed up for KDP select on Janurary 1st. I also chose to participate in the 5 day promotion offering my book free during those days. According to the report today and 13 copies free copies have been “sold” and four paperback books have sold since I signed up. Not bad for the first day. And that is nothing compared to Diane’s and Eve’s experiences. See below:
Okay, folks — this is AMAZING, and I owe it all to Debra Eve (for the idea) and to all of you for the support! So here’s the amazing thing: Carly’s Conspiracy has been free on Amazon for 14 hours. It’s already #19 PAID in the Kindle store and #559 in the FREE store. Now, I don’t have a clue how many copies “sold” that actually is, but it’s very cool to see this after it’s been languishing there for 4 months! Woo Hooo! You guys are GREAT!!
For three days last week I was on four Amazon Kindle best seller lists. Over 900 people downloaded Later Bloomers: 35 Folks Over Age 35 Who Found Their Passion And Purpose.

So, folks, feel free to download a free book of Thicker Than Water (Brands Crossing Series) for the next 4 days. At the end of that time it will sell for $2.99 for the rest of January and February while my blog book tour is in progress.
After reading Eve’s and Diane’s stories, have any of you changed your mind about signing up for the 90 days with KDP select?
