In ENT we trust

Unexpectedly, yesterday, The Priest was picked up by Ereader News Today. I had entered my title in their database for the free-promotions slots a few weeks ago, and promptly forgot. Then yesterday morning I noticed The Priest’s downloads were growing at a rate short of miraculous, and I immediately checked ENT’s website—only they are capable of such results. I dug through the site a bit, and here it was Mauricio, buried at the end of the very last page of the suggested bargains and free deals, but very much alive and kicking.  At the end of the day, The Priest had been downloaded 691 times. At the moment, almost noon, it is sitting at 84 downloads. My sincere thanks to ENT for picking up my book and making, once again, my day.

The Priest Permafree: 3 months later

 

The Priest Kindle Books and Tips Promo June 2014After a daily drizzle of downloads, no love on Goodreads, and one beautiful 4 star review on Amazon, yesterday I scheduled a spot with Kindle Books and Tips for The Priest.  Although my title was the very last on the page and people had to scroll down to find it, this is the result:

Amazon Best Sellers Rank: #703 Free in Kindle Store (See Top 100 Free in Kindle Store)

Permafree: The Voyage, Week 5

 The Priest is still gathering a handful of downloads every day, enough to pop in and out of the free bestseller chart on a daily basis.

84 Downloads in April so far in the USA

Amazon.com Best Sellers Rank: #7,434 Free in Kindle Store (See Top 100 Free in Kindle Store)

15 downloads so far in UK.

Permafree: The Voyage, Week 5

Permafree: The Voyage, Week 3

It is the second day of April, and there are only 4 downloads in the USA, which combined with the fewer and fewer downloads experienced during the last seven days has determined The Priest’s fall of grace from the Free Bestseller chart.

Amazon Best Sellers Rank: #7,530 Free in Kindle Store (See Top 100 Free in Kindle Store)

To gain back some visibility, I’ll have to submit The Priest to all the sites that advertise free and discounted titles.

But, besides the bleakness of the data, I found this while browsing, and although I know the banner shows The Priest as a suggestion because I was checking my book on Barnes & Noble, this sight still made me happy.
