At least it is booming for me.
I have just been notified that I have had a total of 5975 free downloads of FLASH VIRUS: EPISODE ONE – in the month of January alone!!!
That brings the total up to about 10,000 free copies given away since the e-book’s release in November.
That’s a LOT of copies of FLASH VIRUS: EPISODE ONE on an awful lot of Kobo e-readers.
Now – you have to understand the way that an e-reader works.
My little bottom-of-the-line Kobo Mini holds up to ONE THOUSAND e-books!
So – even though my first episode is parked in the virtual library of over ten thousand Kobo e-reading devices across the world – that little book has an AWFUL lot of company. Just because someone downloads a free book does not necessarily mean that they are immediately read it and rush right out and buy the other three books in the series – (a fifth, really soon).
I mean – just take a look at your own bookshelves. How many books have you bought over the years – intending to get around to reading them – and they’re still sitting their on your bookshelf.
STILL – that’s an awful lot of e-books. That’s an awful lot of possibilities of some reader in Australia or the United Kingdom or the far edge of British Columbia where the world falls into the Pacific Ocean – might take it into their head to sit down tonight and READ FLASH VIRUS EPISODE ONE.
And then maybe order the rest of the series.
Or write a review.
Or throw themselves into the Pacific Ocean.
What better to say “I LOVE YOU” than with the gift of e-reading?
yours in storytelling,
