Over 1000 Downloads of Vantastic France

With my free downloads days yesterday and today I have topped over a 1000 downloads of Vantastic France on Amazon in total. I am about 20 downloads away form being in the top 100 free downloads on Amazon UK, which would be quite a milestone for me.

You could say it’s cheating in a way as freebies do not really count as sales, but it really helps to raise the profile of the book on Amazon and future sales. Without using this sales tool I would probably still be on one proper sale a day as opposed to five to ten sales a day, so for me it was well worth signing up to KDP select.

I feel it is good to set yourself a target, so I have been busy on Twitter, Facebook and other forums pushing my free download. To just sit back and wait for sales is a non-started in this day and age with  so many new e-books on the market daily. Sometimes I feel like an insurance salesman with his foot in the door, but If I do not shout about my book who will, well hopefully some of my free down-loaders will post a nice review, that would be a nice little piece of icing on the cake.

Have a great weekend.

    Awesome Steve! Congratulations.

  2. I have stopped counting for a while as Amazon forgot to turn off my free download days.
    Looking good for the 1500 though.
