Sixteen more days of school, and the natives are getting restless.
I'm completing week 3 of the "30 days of positive" project, and things have gone pretty well. Well, until this week. I've been a little stressed this week, and can't put my finger on it, exactly. The nice Mr. Clark was definitely absent today.
In book news, we were up to 500 downloads this morning, and still ranked first in amazon.com's free book Southwest category. Not nearly the numbers my publishers were looking for, but they say this is only the initial marketing effort. They apparently have many more tricks up their respective sleeves, and are telling me to keep the faith.
And I am.
In a way, it's amazing that 500 people are now reading my little book. That's a decent-sized crowd of people, and I have to admit it feels pretty good. I'm not going to give out the number my publisher was hoping to hit, but we came in substantially below that amount, and it was disappointing. He still believes in it, though, and tells me earlier today that they've only scratched the surface, in terms of marketing strategies. These guys are good, and they know what they're doing, so until they tell me otherwise, I'm thinking good things are going to happen.
So, there are two more days left in the free download promotion. Go on and get a copy -- it's free! I'll make it easy. Here's the link to click on, and if you don't have a Kindle reader, you can still get the book. Just look to the right, and download for free the Kindle app. Then you can stick the book on any ol' device you like. Right here:
Thanks, and ciao, y'all ...
