#freeebook #freekindle #furaicompilation Friday

This is my last public Blog post and Tweet about free giveaways.

From now on, all free promotions, if I choose to run anymore, will always center around Friday.

I usually give out books on Thursday and Saturday too (and sometimes other days), but EVERY book that is given away Free will always be available on at least one Friday, WHY?

Because, I’m sick of talking about it.

To me, this blog should be a creative writing platform, a place I can go and just write.

Announcing a free ebook via blog is too much work: it takes a minimum of an hour to construct a decent blog post, edit it, and compose a decent Tweet.

Most of these blog posts are pretty identical, so, I refuse to do them any longer.

So, if you want to subscribe to my blog, please do so:

  • I’ll blog about books recently published, books I’m working on, and any other topic I feel like ranting about; what I won’t do, is tell you when my stories are going to be available for FREE:

THE ANSWER IS FRIDAY: ALWAYS FREE FUCKING FURAI FRIDAY.

This FRIDAY is 12/20, the giveaway starts at 12:00 AM PST (Amazon’s Midnight- 3 AM Eastcoast)

This Friday is my Christmas bonus to you, my fans, (and the ones that read my blogpost from the hashtag room.)

TOMORROW you can download 6 packets (short stories and small books) and 2 Novels for FREE (Retail $28):

Rules for a Successful #FREEebook KDP Promotion; Alchemy; TRASH into GOLD

Had my best weekend ever! Sold 460 books on Amazon! How did I do it?

Continue reading…

So…

Spent 10 years writing my first novel…

Don’t tell them the name of your novel yet; don’t be a GREEDY PIGGY; that’s SPAM; give them VALUE FIRST then a PLUG is OK.

…please excuse my random musings.

Published my novel, did the KDP free promotion thing, sold my first few, then I decided:

  • if one free promotion is good, two free promotions will be better, right?

WRONG!

My first free promotion got me noticed; I made my first real sales the following week; then I did ANOTHER free promotion.

What no one told me; YOU MUST KNOW:

A book, that is actually SELLING, will move DOWN in the RANKINGS during a FREE GIVEAWAY!

Wow!

No one told me this; I’m telling YOU.

Amazon paid rankings are based on what you have actually sold, NOT based on downloads.

First free promotion a Saturday in November, first and only book yielded about 30 downloads.

Within 5 days I got my first real sale; within 24 hours my second real sale; my book went to the best sellers ranking in Time Travel.

I wish I could FUCKING go back in time; undo this decision; the second free giveaway the following week nearly destroyed my novels prospect’s; nearly banished my novel to the bowels of Amazon for eternity

My thoughts at the time:

If I have ANOTHER FREE PROMOTION; I should get 100s of free downloads and an even higher ranking, followed by even more real sales

The opposite happened.

Second week free promotion yielded about 20 free downloads (less than first week), after that my book was no longer ranked, it drifted steadily downwards until last week.

This leads to:

  • RULE 1: Never give away a book that is highly ranked and already selling (even sporadically).

I went back to the drawing board.

So what works???

It was at this point in writing this blog post; I pulled these words into Scrivener to write a book specifically to help other authors sell on Amazon.

Novel Roadkill comes in two packets free on Amazon today:

Amazon books can be read on ANY device, iPad, Iphone, Android, Windows, Mac…

There will be more  Novel Roadkill in the future, depending on fan response in part.

Please download read end enjoy.

Thank you,
