The 5-day free book promotion in Amazon Kindle’s store on THE LOVE OF A COWBOY is over. It garnered a huuuge number of downloads. Or at least, I thought it was huge. If I were earning Amazon’s standard rate for each download, today I would be an exceedingly happy woman.
I’m happy anyway to have had so many download the book and get the Anna Jeffrey brand out there to the reading public. Getting the book out there was something at which my print publisher did a very poor job. When the Anna Jeffrey books were all in print, I wish I had a nickel for every time someone said to me, “I’d love to read your book, but I can’t find it anywhere.”
Now I have to try to figure out what it all means. The number of downloads was 3 times as large as the number for THE LOVE OF A STRANGER. Was that because the word “cowboy” is in the title? Was it because it had a lot of 5-star reader reviews on Amazon? Was it because of the cover? ….. If you have an opinion, please let me know.
Apparently I’m still not on top of the formatting. A couple of readers made negative comment on Amazon about the formatting and proofreading. I thought I had all of that under control, but perhaps I do not. Either that, or something weird happens between the Word document and the upload to Amazon.
Eventually, I’ll promote something else, but at the moment, I’m trying to get THE TYCOON finished so I can publish it. That has taken me a whole lot longer than I intended for it to. Just not enough hours in the day.
So that’s the report. With far more downloads than I ever expected, I’m calling the promotion on the COWBOY book successful.
Would love to hear your comments.
