Permafreed!

5 SF Permafree April 2014Yesterday, I contacted kdp’s support and reported that The Priest was free on iTunes and Barnes & Noble. A few moments later a representative answered, telling me they had already matched the price of the title to $0.00. At last, The Priest is officially free everywhere, and since yesterday downloads are trickling in. Below are the results I recorded as soon as the rank appeared. Hopefully, they won’t plateau as they have done on Smashwords, where there’s barely a download a day. Well aware I have a niche product, I am not expecting the thousands of downloads other titles experience, but I’m hoping this is the first step in the right direction to have the series noticed by readers who might be interested in my flare of dystopian.

I should have written down the time of day the changes in the rank happened, but I’m in writing mode and only had time to copy paste from the Amazon page.

TLDR:  At the moment, 10:00 pm, The Priest has been downloaded on Amazon.com 576 times and has reached #5 in the free science fiction bestseller list.

Permafreeing The Priest

granturco e mongolfiereEighteen days ago, I put The Priest for free on Smashwords. The title has been downloaded 119 times so far. Amazon hasn’t price matched yet, but the book is available both on Nook and iTunes for free. From what I understood, I am nowhere near the number of downloads other titles seem to gather overnight. Said so, I’ll try to get Amazon on board and see if it makes any difference. If that doesn’t work, I’ll find something else. Meanwhile, I’m writing the next book. And thinking positive thoughts.

The Priest is Permafree! Long Live The Priest!

576x768_thepriestSince yesterday, The Priest is available on Smashwords for free. As I explained in previous posts, I am working on widening my readership, and it seems that having a series of three or more books begs for a permafree. I am not sure what to expect exactly from this experiment, since The Ginecean Chronicles are a hard sell to begin with, but if I gain one more reader it would be worth it. At the moment, according to my Smashwords’s page stats, it seems that The Priest was downloaded 34 times. I’ll keep you posted, if anything noteworthy happens. Meanwhile, many happy readings to all of you, and have a fantastic week.

The Priest: New Year, New Promotion

Yesterday, The Priest was promoted by both eBookSoda and ENT. I dropped its price from $4.99 to $0.99 for the promotion, and waited for the results. Today, I woke and immediately checked the ranks, and found that The Priest had reached the 100 chart in the paid Dystopian Science Fiction Bestsellers list category. Not too bad.
