Day 1 of offering Poor Percival Stories (Tale 1) for free on the Kindle has been an amazing success. It’s been a blast watching the number of downloads steadily climb throughout the day, as well as my Amazon rank. As of ten seconds ago I am at 264 downloads for the day. That’s 264 folks who likely never would have downloaded (or even heard of) the story. It doesn’t bother me in the slightest that I’m not making a dime off any of these downloads either. It’s all about getting my work out there into people’s hands and hopefully increase reviews, word of mouth, and general awareness of my name. Plus, how cool is it that 264 people made the effort to download something I wrote!?
And as if that wasn’t cool enough, check out these stats:
Simply amazing if you ask me.
Tomorrow is another free day, and I don’t really know what to expect, but I’m hoping for the best. In any case, this has already made my week.
Oh, and to the 11 folks in the UK that downloaded my story today: Cheers!
