Publicity from Goodreads giveaway

My Goodreads giveaway closes out on January 15th, so enter today!  https://www.goodreads.com/giveaway/show/75303-a-murder-in-mount-moriah. So far, about 500 people have entered to win. The vast majority of those have added A Murder in Mount Moriah to their to-read lists, which, if those people also have the automated Goodreads feeds to Twitter or Facebook, could mean a whole lot of eyeballs looking at my book cover. I’m really curious to see how many of those will translate to sales. Presumably, people don’t buy the book during the giveaway period, in case they end up winning. I guess I have to hope that the “losers” will stumble across it on their shelves in a few weeks’ time, see the positive reviews, and buy a copy. In other news, I had a nice sales bounce last week when my fellow Little Spot for Stories author Nicole Loughan‘s series became a Kindle bestseller. It looks like a few dozen people checking out the Little Spot website picked up my book as well as hers. I think I also picked up some sales from my recent New River Valley Voices reading, the recording of which has been in heavy rotation on the local public access station.
