Maybe not to free next time!

I gave away about 750 free Kindle copies of A Murder in Mount Moriah during my Christmas promotion. That was nowhere near the 1300+ that I gave away during the first promo in October, but about what I was expecting, considering my promo ran on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. However, my belief that the free promo would improve my ranking proved unfounded. I was hovering around 60,000 before the promo. Now I’m at 320,000! Bawh?? I’m still hopeful that it will increase my audience and result in a few word-of-mouth sales. In better news, I’m up to 200 entries in my Goodreads giveaway and almost 100 people have added it to their “to read” lists. Onwards and upwards!

  1. I’ve had 4 sales in the last 2 days after the promo, which is not bad. (Overall, I’ve been averaging 1 sale/day). My ranking improved accordingly. Was it due to the free book promo? No idea.
