It’s about a week and a half since the launch and my print copies have already arrived so I take everything back that I said about the Brazilian postal service.
It also means that I have five copies to sign and give away as prizes. To win a copy all you need to do is send me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the first word of the ‘1976’ chapter. The first five correct entries I recieve will each get a signed copy of the book. The competition closes on Sunday 4th February 2018.
Since the launch adverts have been running on Facebook, Amazon and Bookbub. The Facebook ads have finished and the Bookbub ads will probably end in the next week or so, at which point I am considering removing the book from all sales outlets except Amazon and enrolling the book in the Kindle Unlimited programme for 90 days.
I sent a follow up email to anyone who didn’t open the original launch email. I’ll send one more follow up email using another email provider to all those who did not open either email.
Meanwhile, I have signed up to two more Bookfunnel promotions with Living with Saci and have now made it free on all platforms hoping that Amazon will price match and that it will encourage more downloads.
I have written a little bit more on my fourth novel but I have also started to edit my third book which I am hoping to launch in July. This book is tentatively titled When the Well Runs Dry and is set in a dystopian future.
