Just to recap: My debut novel, Good Ole Boys, is in the Kindle exclusive Lending Library for three months (until mid-March). Maybe I should have done a freebie promo up front, but this Valentine's Day placement works for me and the Good Ole Boys love story. Plus, I'm living and learning. Yet, I couldn't be happier to see the numbers in my Amazon Report to date.
So today is Day 1 of five consecutive days of the Good Ole Boys for-free campaign. I am so excited. I have no idea if I get part of the Lending Library monies designated for February for these giveaways, but maybe not--they show up as copies sold not as copies lent (once I find out something on this, I'll share it with y'all). Still, you'd think I was getting paid for all the joy I feel at seeing the tally of my new readers stack up.
Here's my totals as revised at 9:19 a.m. CST on the first of my five days:
1. 131 free downloads in the U.S.
2. 35 free downloads in the U.K. (I have sold there before so this wasn't my first "sell" in England.)
3. 2 free downloads in Germany--now THIS is the FIRST entry I've made into the German market. Wahoo!
These numbers change each time I recheck Amazon and I've already had to edit them three times here. How life-alteringly amazing!
None--yet--show up in France, Spain or Italy. I'll let y'all know. I can already see myself in manic refresh mode within Amazon Reports today! Maybe I'll settle down as I get into Day 2. No guarantee though.
This is SO much fun . . . .
