I’m pleased to announce that my contribution to A K Michaels’ A Wolf’s Hunger world is live. Writing Ax and Aimee’s story was a nice change of pace and a a much-needed break from my other series. I’ve had lots of fun creating a Wolf Pack living in Washington State, and I’m planning to write more stories set in the same universe.

Ax: A Wolf’s Hunger Alpha Shifter Romance

A Wolf’s Hunger: It can’t be stopped
Axelrod McKenzie left the Seattle’s Wolf Pack ten years ago, swearing never to return. The sudden death of his adoptive father and alpha of the pack forces Ax to go back on his word.
Suddenly plagued by a gnawing hunger that consumes him from within, Ax must confront his inner demons and his half-brother, Kendall; a brother Ax resents because by pack laws Kendall will inherit the alpha seat vacated by their father.
Little does Ax know that his life is going to get way worse before it gets any better. But the moment he has a glimpse of Aimee, Kendall’s fiancée, Ax’s life is forever changed by the revelation that the she-wolf is his fated soulmate.
Passions run high as the three of them must come to terms with their fates. Will love triumph over a family feud that has lasted for decades?

The Lost Centurion: The Day After the Bookbub

Let’s start today’s post by saying that I am not impressed by the data I collected at the end of the first day post-Bookbub. The day’s earnings were lukewarm at best, something I’ve achieved by myself on a good day without any promo.

At the moment, ranking for The Lost Centurion have disappeared from its Amazon page, but the last time I checked, it was lingering at #40. I will add the latest ranking as soon as I have it.

Amazon Downloads: 1,865

Amazon sales: $38,11

I’ve realized only now that The Lost Centurion is still available through Smashwords and not D2D, while the rest of the Immortals series is sold wide through D2D.

Smashwords Downloads, data from the last three days: iTunes 1,575, Nook 1,032, Kobo 35. Frankly, those numbers have pleasantly surprised me. I didn’t expect the promo to be so successful wide. This is definitely uplifting and mitigate what I said a few sentences ago, at the beginning of this post.

D2D Sales: 105.74 – 95.39= $10.4

Reviews received on the day after the Bookbub: 3 – ranging from 5* to 1*, bringing the total number of reviews to 213, with an average of 4.2 out of 5.

I’ll post again tomorrow with a final report about this promo.

PS

Amazon ranks reappeared:

Amazon Best Sellers Rank: #36 Free in Kindle Store (See Top 100 Free in Kindle Store)

  • #1 in Kindle Store > Kindle eBooks > Romance > Paranormal > Vampires
  • #1 in Kindle Store > Kindle eBooks > Romance > Paranormal > Angels
  • #1 in Kindle Store > Kindle eBooks > Romance > Paranormal > Ghosts
The Lost Centurion: The Day After the Bookbub

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.

The Lost Centurion’s Last Hurrah

61Gc7i5E7ZLIn the indie authors’ world, smart minds have been wondering  for a while if the era of the permafree has passed its prime. At the moment, I can’t remember when I first put The Lost Centurion for free, but it’s definitely longer than a year, probably two. The number of free downloads per day has dramatically decreased, which translates in fewer sales for the rest of the series. When I was accepted for a Bookbub for today, I decided it was time to put The Lost Centurion back to paid as soon as the promotion ends. Because Bookbub accepted me just before I was about to leave for two weeks, I only had two days to look for additional advertising venues, and only Freebooksy was available. Bookgorilla was all taken for the month, and Robin Reads rejected me. So, I stacked a Freebooksy yesterday, April the 24th,  Bookbub today, April the 25th, and I’ll send my newsletter on the following day. I am in Europe as I write, and Bookbub will start in six hours. I’ll write back in a few days to report final numbers. Meanwhile, thanks to the 936 downloads brought by Freebooksy, The Lost Centurion starts at #146 in the Amazon Free chart, and it’s #1 in a few categories: angels, psychics, demons and devils. I don’t expect spectacular results with Bookbub because this is the third time this title is promoted by them (the first time it was by itself, and the second as part of a boxed set), but it’s a good way to end a permafree nonetheless. Talk to you soon.

The Fifth Moon’s Wolf: Cover Reveal

In the last twenty-five days, I’ve been working nonstop on my newest project, The Fifth Moon’s Wolf, a brand new paranormal series set on a distant planet, several hundreds years from now. It has been an exhilarating month of February, and I’m barely breathing now, but I was able to finish the book, and create the covers and several banners. The house has yet to recover from it, but Spring is here, so I can look outside at the pretty cherry blossoms and forget that I should be cleaning the mess that has accumulated all around me. So, what do you think?
