Well, I'm half-way through my three-day event, and I'm closing in on 4000 downloads. Holy cow!! I just checked out Amazon.com and The Guilty was #2 on their Kindle listings for legal thrillers. Holy cow again!!
So I'm obviously hoping that some of the readers who got a free copy of my book will like it enough to tell their friends about it, or to post on-line reviews. At the same time, no matter what happens in terms of book sales, I'm pretty amazed by the idea that people in countries as far away as Italy, Japan and India will be reading my little novel. As entrepreneurial as we all get, and as conscious of royalties as we are, in the end what every writer wants is to know that people are reading his work. I have been given that satisfaction and more!
With the promo ending tomorrow, September 1, I look forward to seeing by how far I can surpass my own limited expectations.
