My bodacious blogging buddy at 52booksorbust.com is featuring A Murder in Mount Moriah as part of the first Literary Blog Hop of 2014. This will be the tenth Literary Giveaway Blog Hop (there are 3 per year). So far, they have been a great success, with between 30 and 70 participating blogs every time. So, if you like free books (and who doesn’t?), hop along to the participating blogs between now and February 12th, 2014. The nice thing about these giveaways, as opposed to Goodreads, etc., is that they are “curated” by expert book review bloggers, who certify the quality of the books they are giving away. Good luck, and happy hopping!
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!
