So this is the way I like to start a launch. Dawn of a Legend is off to a grand start with best seller badges on the .com and .co.uk stores. And let’s not forget Australia!
Dawn is also ranking number 1 in various categories and my job is to keep it there for as long as possible. One week on and organic performance has been measured. Now, it’s time for promo…
Yesterday, promo went out on ereadernewstoday for book I, Path of a Novice, which has been reduced to 99C for the first 30 days of launch.Today, it will feature on http://www.fkbt.com and across their social media platforms. On Wednesday, we’ll be featuring on http://www.bookraid.com, then from Friday, on http://www.booksbutterfly.com. From the 6th of May, the Book Blitz for Dawn of a Legend begins. I’ll create a separate posts for the links.
So has it all been flowers? Eh, no. While feedback has been amazing, we are only a week into launch, which means the reviews, although they are trickling in, numbers are still quite low. One bad review and that takes you down a good chunk. And yes, we got a 2-star review from someone who liked the book but read far too much into the political plot line and thought I was sitting on the other side of his / her fence. Hopefully, reviews to come will take us back up to five stars.
I have also been checking my author ranking on Amazon and am delighted that we have hit an all-time high today.
#424 out of all fantasy authors on Amazon is pretty amazong!
Amazing too. But this is addictive and I wonder if I can’t work on that.
So what now? Well, I sit and wait, and slowly but surely prepare myself for work on book four. I need to get back into that routine. Early nights and early mornings, but for now, I just want to relax, have fun, have a launch party and thank everyone who has been participating, reading, reviewing, motivating or simply hitting the like buttons across my social media. These moments don’t last long but they are memorable. If you’re one of those people, you’re amazing and I thank you from the bottom of my heart.
And now for coffee, biscuits and a ball game with my dogs.
