After yesterday's slow start to the free book giveaway, things have started to improve significantly.
With expectations calling for hundreds, if not thousands of downloads the first day, which would generate all kinds of nifty rankings, publicity and accolades, early reports yesterday morning showed "Finding God in Texas" with a grand total of 44. Talk about letting the wind out of your sails.
The day ended, however, with 200 downloads, and a no. 1 ranking in the amazon.com free e-book Southwest category. No. 1. This morning, the grand total increased to 361, and I don't have today's final tally yet, but I expect it's approaching 500 downloads. Not what we were expecting but, hey, it continued to rank no. 1 in Southwest!
So, there are three more days to get a free copy. Click here and get one: http://amzn.to/Rlh5V3
After Friday, the price goes up from free to $9-10. Get one now. Even if you don't like it, what's the damage? There also is a beautiful paperback version available.
Immense thanks for everybody who downloaded a book and helped get the word out. It's pretty amazing.
Ciao, y'all ...
