Pushing the Boat out.
I successfully uploaded my book to Kindle and “launched” it to my subscribers four days ago. The response was small: an open rate of about 2%, which was probably what I expected. I’ve had precious little sales on Amazon over the last four weeks, so it was nice to see a spike in the graph. I managed to climb into the top 100 in Organised Crime (73) on Amazon UK, which has been unfamiliar territory for me for quite some time now. I couldn’t get it on to the other sales platforms until I had it on D2D. Eventually it appeared on Apple, Kobo, B&N and other smaller sellers. My sales on D2D have now started incrementing since I created an advert on BookBub. It’s still subjective territory for me, this advertising game, but hopefully I will find those small margins which will give me some appreciable headway. The link for outlets other than Amazon is https://www.books2read.com/u/bpWoXk. The link to Amazon.com is http://www.amazon.com/dp/B079SSJP9V/?tag. The price is $0.99/£0.99. If any of you do download the book, I would appreciate a review on Amazon. Every little helps, as one popular retailer says over here in UK.
