Today is the start of my first KDP Select promotion. As this is my first one it’s new territory and I’ve no idea how it will pan out. How many downloads do I hope I get? Well, loads please. I’m hoping to reach four figures, so if I can top 1000 downloads I’ll be happy. Since last week I’ve been submitting The Butterfly Storm to various promotional sites in the US and the UK but there’s no guarantee that any of them will actually feature my book over the next few days. Fingers crossed a handful of them do. I did opt to pay a couple of sites for guaranteed promotion, so we’ll see how it goes.
The Butterfly Storm went free at approximately 9am and so far there have been 9 downloads in the US, 27 in the UK and 1 in India! I’m just starting to tweet about it, add it to my facebook page and I’m now going to post about it on various forums and free book facebook pages.
I know many of you have already bought and read The Butterfly Storm – thank you so much! – but if you haven’t and would like a FREE read then you can download it on amazon.com and amazon.co.uk between now and Sunday 11th. I’ll leave you with a couple of quotes from some of the very lovely reviews I’ve received over the past few weeks.
‘This was one of those rare books that when you get to the last page, you feel a loss – a loss of friendship and kinship with the characters that were written in such a rounded manner and in such detail that you lived the story with them.’ 5* review
‘I would recommend this book to anyone who has been in love, been or dreamt of going to Greece and anyone who has ever thought about changing their life. The descriptions throughout mean that you feel that you are with the characters, I could not put this book down and right till the last page I could not predict the ending, it was excellent.’ 5* review
‘The characterisation and scenes are brilliantly portrayed and you can easily find yourself drawn into the story, I found it to be very addictive, I couldn’t put the book down and needed to keep reading to find out what would happen next, it kept me guessing right up to the end as to what Sophie’s final decision would be.’ 5* review
