Uncle Bob’s Kindle Countdown Promotion – Part Four

Way back in the beginning of 2013 I published a blog entry entitled “How Many Ways Can You Say “He said”?”

I’m beginning to feel like a follow-up article needs to be written. Something along the lines of “How Many Ways Can You Say – BUY MY BOOK?”

As a writer I don’t find it comfortable standing up here on this homemade soapbox. My ankles are getting sore, my balance is suspect and I’m pretty sure I’ve got splinters in my feet.

🙂

I know that I get easily bored by one too many BUY MY BOOK tweets on Twitter. I grow irritated by the authors on certain Facebook pages who seem to be aiming for Guinness Book status in single-handed-spam-status-updates.

Shoot, do they even call them status updates anymore?

I am SO 2012.

Still, I’ve sold twelve copies as of this morning. This campaign is only one day old. It hasn’t been a huge success – but it has definitely pushed the book towards visibility.

Here’s where UNCLE BOB started out this morning.

Amazon Best Sellers Rank: #35,385 Paid in Kindle Store (See Top 100 Paid in Kindle Store)

#20 in Kindle Store > Kindle eBooks > Children’s eBooks > Literature & Fiction > Religious Fiction > Christian
#96 in Books > Children’s Books > Literature & Fiction > Religious Fiction > Christian

For those folks who have been following along I’ve got a similar push going on for my perma-free historical-horror story IN THE DARK AND THE DEEP.

Currently IN THE DARK AND THE DEEP is sitting at this ranking.

#4,838 Free in Kindle Store (See Top 100 Free in Kindle Store)
#60 in Kindle Store > Kindle eBooks > Literature & Fiction > Mythology & Folk Tales
#61 in Kindle Store > Kindle eBooks > Science Fiction & Fantasy > Fantasy > Fairy Tales

Today my FIVERR with Bknights kicks into action. I’ve got another similar program lined up for tomorrow. I am hoping that this will be the secret – each of these pushes going off like so many hopeful star-shell flares into the darkness.

So – let me ask you – how many ways CAN you write “Buy my Book?”

Yours in storytelling,
