The Lost Centurion: Bookbub–Day Three

This is the last Bookbub-related post for this week. I might come back next week with more data if the numbers change, but so far, the post promo isn’t looking  anything to write back home.

Amazon Best Sellers Rank: #75 Free in Kindle Store (See Top 100 Free in Kindle Store)

  • #1 in Kindle Store > Kindle eBooks > Romance > Paranormal > Ghosts
  • #1 in Kindle Store > Kindle eBooks > Romance > Paranormal > Demons & Devils

This is it, in a few hours, The Lost Centurion will be out of the Top 100, and it will become invisible again.

Amazon Downloads: 671

Amazon Sales: $48.43

Smashwords Downloads: 91 Nook, 3 Smashwords, but the data is incomplete.

D2D  Sales: $116.43 – $105.74= $10.69

Reviews: 0

Conclusions: After three days, I’m still losing money on this promo. The Lost Centurion will be out of permafree as soon as the downloads dwindle, and it will get back to $3.99 like the rest of the novels in the series. It’s time to find another strategy to promote my books. Permafree gets stale after a while and it isn’t sustainable in the long run. Back to the drawing board.

The Lost Centurion: Bookbub–First Day Results

Here is the data at the end of the first day of The Lost Centurion’s Bookbub promo:

Amazon Best Sellers Rank: #14 Free in Kindle Store (See Top 100 Free in Kindle Store)

  • #1 in Kindle Store > Kindle eBooks > Romance > Paranormal > Psychics
  • #1 in Kindle Store > Kindle eBooks > Romance > New Adult & College

So it went from #130 up to #14, not the podium, but at least in the first 20 free bestsellers page.

Amazon downloads: 8,417

Amazon sales: 33 books (mainly in the Immortals series) = $79.17 earned on April 25th.

Wide downloads: I’m waiting for D2D’s results.

Wide sales: I’m waiting for D2D’s results, but as of yesterday, the whole month’s earnings totaled $95.39.

Reviews: 1 review off the bat: 4*, lucky number 210 (It’s probably from the Freebooksy promo)

Conclusions so far: In the past, I made the Bookbub money back on the first day, but as I said in yesterday’s post, The Lost Centurion has been free for a while, and I’ve promoted it at least once every other month. Plus, it’s 2:01 am in the US as I write, and there are already 419 downloads on Amazon. I’ll report later in the day with more stats.
