And the results?

Tomorrow ABNA will be releasing the list of the books moving on to the next round. I feel like I've been waiting forever, but now that it's here, I'm not sure my heart can take it.

So, to get my mind off of things, I did the Free Promotion over the weekend. Let's tally up the results and see how we did...

These are the number of free downloads of the Guardian. - 110 - 8 - 4 - 1
Total - 123

Pretty good, all things considered. I was expecting about a hundred. What I did not expect was that the second day had a significant drop. Thinking logically about it, I suppose Sunday isn't a very good day for this sort of thing. I'll keep that in mind for the future.

Thank you all for participating. And a BIG thank you for the reviews on Amazon!

It's Time...

It seems as though the Free Promotion days have been reset. That means we can do a few more Free Promotion days. I'm thinking that the 17th and 18th of March would be a good weekend for it.
So keep that date in mind.
Here, I'll bold it so it's more eye-catching and memorable. :P

The Guardian (Book 2 of the Coranite Chronicles) will be Free to download from Amazon on the 17th and 18th of March.

If you're wondering why I'm using these free promotion days (and why I'm announcing them ahead of time), it's because the Coranite Chronicles is still unknown. It sells terribly (we'll be lucky if we get 10 books sold in a month :) ). And when it sells terribly, it pretty much won't show up on Amazon. For example, at the moment, the Guardian is ranked like... 100,000 something. And that's because of 1 sale (by the way, thank you for that, whoever you are). At least with these free promotion days, if enough people download it, I can go up the ranking on the freebies. So that's the story behind that. 

Of course, as always, I appreciate it even more if you guys buy the book instead.
But for those who really can't spare the cash (these are rough times), are too uncertain about the book, or can't/won't buy the book for whatever reason...then mark your calenders!

Here we go again...and again...

ABNA News:
As I had stated last month, I entered S3 into the Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award.
Ah, but S3... is hardly what one would call a work of art. I don't know much about art to begin with, but I know S3 is definitely a troublesome book to enter. Didn't have much of a choice.

While I was editing, I ran into quite a few problems. I did what I could to salvage the situation.
All I can do now is hope for the best.

The good news is that it did manage to pass the pitch stage for the first time in MY LIFE(okay, so I've only entered 3 times, but still...this is a first). So, onto round 2! The results for those moving to the next round will be revealed on March 20. It's excruciating to know that there's absolutely nothing I can do anymore but wait for the results. It's not like a normal competition where you're actively engaged. Can't even edit the submission. Permanently locked.

So I will wait.

As for other news, the ninety day period should be over soon, which means I'll be able to do another set of Free Promotion days on Amazon for the Guardian. I'll make a post in advance when that happens. This time I'll space out the days a bit better. So be sure to check back around the middle of March. I think it should be about March 10th or so, but I don't know exactly how it works.

 And finally...
Sales report for the month of February.
3 books sold total. Two from UK.
Better than nothing, right ;)
Thanks for the support and... hopefully I can spark a bit more interest on those free promotion days.
