No, this isn’t going to be a series of posts.
Thanks to Freebooksy, Below it the ground running today on its first free promo day. As of right now, it has over 1600 downloads, has broken into the top 100 free Kindle books on Amazon, and for most of the day it’s been sitting at #1 and #2 in the free categories for fantasy action adventure and sword & sorcery, respectively. It probably won’t stay in the overall top 100 tomorrow, but I expect it to hang around in the categories pretty well for a while. (Also today it’s been around #3-4 in general fantasy, #7 in overall sci fi & fantasy, and #9 in action and adventure, so it’s doing well even in the broader categories.)
I’m positively stoked. Having never run a free promo at all before, let alone one with advertising, I had no idea what to expect. Obviously I won’t see a penny in royalties for the free buys, but the book is getting out there and right now that’s what I really care about.
