Before the Bookbub starts, and with the Freebooksy just ended, I’ll write down a few numbers to keep the data straight.
First of all, a few details about this promo. The Lost Centurion has been permafree for a while, and I’ve promoted this title several times. Recently, free downloads have dwindled to a handful a day, and a change of promotional strategy was called for. In the indie-publishing world, there’s no time to linger, we must study the market and make changes rapidly.
Monday, April 24th: my paid promo with Freebooksy totaled 923 downloads. Overall, a good result for a book that has been promoted several times already and it has been free for probably 2 years (I’ll have to find out when exactly I put The Lost Centurion for free the first time.)
Monday, April 25th: at 12:01 am, The Lost Centurion is #146 in the Free Amazon Best Seller List, #1 in demons & devils, psychic, and angels.
I paid $100 for the Freebooksy promo, and $226 for the Bookbub.
Money earned this month, before the Bookbub starts: $565.78 on Amazon, and $95.39 wide. So far, this has been a poor month for sales, and it’s the end of it.
Now, I wait for the Bookbub to start…
