The Lost, 2nd book in the zombie ocean series, comes out this Saturday, and I’ve set up a free promotion to signal boost both it and the first book, The Last.
The last time I promoted The Last I shipped 5000+ copies, which led to a big boost in sales with almost 1000 sold at full price- $2.99. That was my best promotion yet, paying for itself, the cost of the cover, and some of this promo too.
Here’s the new promo plan:
Aug 18 The Last
Ereader news today- $25
Kindle nation daily- $30
Kindle books and tips- $25
That adds up to $90. These promo services Facebook post, tweet, email and blog your book to their audiences. Apparently they make lots of money off us authors. But- they offer a shot at visibility, and these selected sites have served me well in the past.
Aug 19 The Lost
The same as above, plus:
That totals $160 for The Lost, and $250 in total. It starts to be real money. Wish me luck, and I’ll post results here.
