I ran a four-day free promotion for my book "A Matter of Degree" last week and it went fantastically. At its peak, my book reached #3 in Contemporary Fiction and #4 in Women's Fiction in the Amazon.com free Kindle books charts. And downloads were in the thousands.
I hadn't expected this at all. And, as all authors who do free promotions will tell you, it's impossible to know why a particular promotion goes so well. But, whatever the reason, I am very, very pleased.
So far, paid downloads after the promotion are also doing well. So fingers crossed this continues!
You can download your copy of "A Matter of Degree" from Amazon.co.uk and Amazon.com.
