It’s been a week (and a day) since the big Bookbub promotion and the Sharani Series is still selling relatively well based off the Amazon sales rankings at least. I have it on good authority that over 2000 copies of the Sands ebook got sold on 04/01/2017 alone. That’s simply incredible. In the end, Sands ended up spiking as high as #61 overall paid in the Kindle store. With over a million books available, #61 overall is nothing to gawk at. In fact, it’s simultaneously scary and humbling. I’m grateful to each and every person who purchased a copy as part of the promotion.
Now, I’d like to request something. If you purchased any of the Sharani Series books (and read them) any time since they’ve come out, please write a review on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Audible, and Goodreads (respectively – depending on where you purchased your copy of the book). Why do I ask?
REVIEWS ARE IMPORTANT AND CAN MAKE OR BREAK AN AUTHOR
What do I mean? Well, let’s use Amazon as an example. The more reviews you have, the more likely it is that Amazon will promote your book in the “suggestions” section of OTHER PEOPLE’S BOOKS. That means Amazon will give the author some free marketing and promotion. Goodreads and Barnes & Noble function in a similar fashion. Audible is just a little different. The trigger there is 25 ratings means Audible will start suggesting it to other people. More than fifty ratings means it will start showing up on OTHER PEOPLE’S BOOKS suggestion pages in the “Because you bought this book, you may like …” section. That’s a big deal. MORE “free” cross promotion from the largerst book retailer in the world.
So, please please please write a review. Even if you didn’t particularly care for the book, leave a review. Every single one counts.
As always, Read On! I’m planning on being a little better on the blogging over the coming weeks, but we’ll see how the schedule works out.
Uphold the Flame!
