Five days of asking, begging, cajoling people into downloading The Priest for free have ended. Free promotion isn’t for the faints of heart, but my final numbers* are worth the 24/7 tour de force, which started with the planning of the promo and lasted for almost four weeks. Eventually, 4500 copies of my book were downloaded in five days. During those days, The Priest reached top 100 bestsellers and maintained that position for almost a day. It was first in Dystopian and second in Adventure, and stayed on the podium in both categories for the last three days of the promotion. It reached first position in Science Fiction/Adventure on Amazon.it, and second and third on Amazon.de and Amazon.ca. Four 5* reviews were left on Amazon, and Pax and Prince, currently $5.99, sold several copies. As suggested by my betters, The Priest will be temporarily $0.99 to ride the tail of the promotion, and I already saw the benefit of such strategy. Now, it’s back to writing and editing.
