Just a Little E-book Marketing.

Competing with thousands of e-books in the same genre is difficult, but I did. I came in #9 on the Top 100 Free downloaded books on Amazon a couple weeks ago. I advertised all over Facebook, Twitter, and a few websites. I intend to stretch that to other free promotion sites my next round, and then again to some paid ones the round after that. Trying different ideas as I go. So far I’m content with my free run. I had nearly 600 downloads in ONE day over five separate countries. I’m not entirely sure how successful that is, however, I have read many authors on their first free runs have that many downloaded over their five days stretch rather than in one day. If that’s the case I did something well. If not, I can only get better.

Serissa – One Day FREE!

I am running two promotions right now. One I did for Twitter last night, if I could hit 300 followers, I’d release Serissa for FREE for one day. We hit it by a landslide. 368! Good job guys, I appreciate all the help. Serissa will be free on 8/14! For one day only!

The second promotion is for Likes on Facebook as well as Twitter, I’m going for 500 Likes/Followers each! All the help I can get in spreading the word. I will make Serissa free again for anyone who missed it the first time, and for any additional followers!

That being said, if you can leave an honest review if you enjoy it. Reviews can be left at Amazon.com or Goodreads. Of course not necessary, but appreciated.

Thanks for all the help, RT’s, shares, and likes!

 

 


Review From a New Review & Editing Site

Here is the review I received from a new site, A Tiger’s Tale Edits & Reviews. They are currently accepting submissions for book reviews, and even  editing services. Thanks T!

This is a book about a coming of age girl named Serissa, Sara for short, who has always been on the outside. Until suddenly her entire life is turned upside down.

After Sara and her mom move from a small town to a big city she thinks her life may actually change for once. Four years later it has. She has two best friends and and a boyfriend, the first boy she hasn’t felt awkward around.

Sara’s friends convince her to sing in the senior showcase and with her new boyfriend by her side she reluctantly agrees. Singing in front of people has always terrified her although she’s enjoyed singing quietly in the back of the choir for as long as she can remember.

When Sara’s friends decide to follow a band around the country her world suddenly changes. She finds herself questioning everything she’s ever known, her friends, her boyfriend, and her childhood bully. Who can she trust? Who really has her best interest in mind?

Over the summer, Serissa finds out what her life’s purpose is from the last person she ever expects and has to decide who she’s going to let help her achieve it.

It is well written, the storyline is fresh, and the characters are likeable. Even the bad guys make you believe they’re good.

This book is perfect for teenage girls who don’t feel like they fit in and can’t find their place in the world. It really makes you feel like you are living in her world and you will wonder what will happen next from each page.

That’s just the description to see the whole thing please visit the site and check out their services. Great turn around time! Their Facebook Page.


Need Likes, Follows, and Sharing?

bookcatYou may have seen Book Lovin’ Cat on my Facebook page recently. I saw all these fun advertisements for books, and wanted to contribute one for authors. This is my cat, and this is my graphic. You can borrow him if you like. All I ask in return is you do NOT direct link him. Please download and upload into your own FB photos for use, or upload to your blog, so on and so forth.  A link back to me is nice too, but unnecessary. (click the pic for the full size!)

I need more likes, follows, and shares myself. My numbers have grown quickly, but I need more in order to release my book Serissa for free. Serissa is a Young Adult, Romantic, Paranormal/Fantasy. You can read up on her here on the blog. She is the first in a series which so far has received only 5 Star Reviews!

My stats are as follows and what I’d like to release the book for FREE:

Twitter Follows– 184, I would like 250.

Blog Follows– 10, I would like 25, (you can even follow in email!)

Facebook Page– 53, I would like 150.

Thank you for all the current support and help. I really appreciate it, and I hope to pay everyone back with a free download soon. If you can’t wait and are a Amazon Prime member you can borrow the book for free now!


Borrow My Book on Amazon Prime.

If you weren’t aware I recently made Serissa available for Amazon Prime members. (Members can borrow the book for free!) I plan on making the book available for free as my numbers grow on Twitter and Facebook. If you don’t have Prime membership please feel free to pass the Twitter and Facebook sites around to your friends who love Young Adult books. I would love to release it sooner, but I’d like to release to a larger following to give more people an opportunity to download it.

In return for helping me I do attempt to share, RT, or follow back as many as I can, and with what time will allow.

If you haven’t read about Serissa visit this blog, and see her writing samples and blurb.

Happy Reading!


Two 5* Reviews.

Received another 5*review today! Thank you so much to my lovely readers for the support. See the reviews live here. If you haven’t left a review yet, but are interested in doing so you may do that on Amazon or Goodreads– or even both. You can friend me on Goodreads as well or even want to read the book. Anything helps and of course is appreciated.

Review one— “I read this book being a fan of Twilight and other similar stories. I love supporting new authors so I thought I’d give it a shot. It’s well written and the story is different than things I’ve read before. Reading the description I expected something along the lines of a fan fic type book, but it wasn’t that way at all. If you’re like me in that you get totally involved in a book this book is for you. You will feel Serissa’s emotions the same way she does. Her triumphs and her heartbreaks will make you keep rooting for her and the twists and turns the book takes will keep you guessing up until the end. Several of the twists I never saw coming and I was just as shocked as Serissa was. I don’t want to be too detailed and ruin it for anyone but this is not just a fictional love story, it’s so much more than that. It makes you wonder what you would do if you were in her situation. It’s not every day your bully becomes your Guardian Angel and your boyfriend becomes your enemy. (Literally!) Her entire world as she knows it come crumbling down again and again and she keeps going. Definitely can’t wait til the next book is released!!”

Review two— “Being an avid reader of all types of fiction I found this book to be a well balanced combination of mystery, fantasy,romance and just good solid story line. The author was able to capture the various characters so vividly on paper that my minds eye easily brought each one to life, acting out each page as if I were watching actors on a stage pouring out their emotions to relay the intensity of their need to express themselves and be heard. Every author has a distinct style to their writing which is one of the things that will determine if I will bother to seek out more of their work and I am going to be first in line for this authors next release. If you like to feel the emotions of each character and are left with much food for thought after reaching the last page then this is your next “Must Read”!”

Thanks again everyone!
