Hey 3.5 readers.
Your old pal BQB here.
So, it was a semi-exciting day today.
Last night, I began a free promo for BQB’s Badass Writing Prompts. That’s right, you can get your very own free copy by clicking here. That’ll last till Monday, June 12, when it will go back up to $2.99, so…uh…how do marketers do this? Act fast! Get your free copy today! My prices are insane! I’m Crazy BQB and all my books are priced so low they ought to lock me up in the funny farm!
But I digress. Like a proud papa with a new baby, I checked on the status of my book all day today and was delighted to see that the free promo was helping it move up the charts:
#33 in Kindle Store – Kindle E books – Reference – Writing, Research and Publishing Guides – Writing Skills? Huh, sounds awesome. (Note that apparently means it is in the top 100 of the free part of this section. At least that’s what I think it means. I am still new to all of this.)
#9,637 in Free Kindle Store? Huh, well, there’s still 9,636 peeps ahead of me but ok, that sounds pretty awesome too.
So, being a total novice at this I thought, “Hmm…I mean, I’m not in this game to give stuff away for free and make no money but these rankings sound so awesome that I must have given away like thousands of copies. Think of it as a down payment. Give out lots of free books today and readers will turn into fans who will pay for your stuff tomorrow.”
But then I checked out my figures. 15 free copies. 15. And seriously, I love all 15 of you but I really thought I’d of given away like thousands of copies.
At any rate, I’m not sure how these rankings are figured but my book has been moving up in the ranks all day so however it is done, I’m just going to say thank you to Amazon and Lord Bezos, Supreme Commander of the Internet and All Digital Media He Surveys Until He Conquers the Globe…OR HAS HE ALREADY AND LEFT US NONE THE WISER? MUAH HA HA!
But seriously. I know. 15 copies is nothing to sneeze at. It’s still early. And the one thing I have always noticed about online media is it is one of few activities I have participated in where the results get better every year.
Long story short, I hope you’ll take advantage of this free promo. I’m not asking you 3.5 readers to do much. Just download a free copy. If you like it, give it a fab review. If you have any thoughts you’d like to share, let me know.
AND – do keep in mind it is a book filled with writing prompts, so if you’re a blogger and you’re looking for ideas to blog about, here’s your chance to get some inspiration.
Thank you, 3.5 readers.
