I will continue to chronicle the fascinating journey of a book hammered by a goodreads giveaway here! LOL. Anyhow, I witnessed the danger of the giveaway again today... I pulled back advertising this week, to avoid sending FB more money, and then today as rankings slid, Amazon must've done a promo... jumped like 16k ranks overall... and Wham! Some ridiculous book shows up as my #1 also-bought. No relation whatsoever to fantasy/sci-fi after working so hard to correct at least the top of the also boughts. But then, I scrolled through. Not as bad my heart attack suggested. Eve of Snows gained F/SF books in the also boughts, with some changes. About 35 F/SF titles now. Still got some whacky nonfiction in there, and some thrillers and mystery and whatnot. But, getting better. EoS also got it's 10th review, 4.9 average... gratitude goes out to all them folks! as it allows me to start hitting more promos. In between, I'll still be toying with FB ads. NEXT UP: The Fussy Librarian Promo on the 26th of October. This will be interesting as heck, curious to see performance here, both in sales and also boughts. This will be the 2 month anniversary of the ebooks release. Fussy Librarian note: I love how they confirmed slotting EoS into their schedule: Fast. No drama, LOL. In the batter's box: Bookbarbarian (waiting for confirmation) on the 28th of September. After that, I'll be shooting for a bookbub in early November for EoS and (hopefully) book 1.5, a bridge novella between books 1 & 2. I will update here to give folks an idea of the horrors of screwed also boughts and their repair, as well as any marketing insights.
