The free promotion of There’s no such thing as Werewolves went many time’s better than I though it would. I gave away over 2,700 copies, and received increased sales of both my other books during the promotion. Also, since the end of the promotion, sales of Werewolves appear to be up also. The promotion exceeded all my expectations.
I think of my publishing venture as this huge machine. Something I’ve invested a lot of time, energy and heart into. For the most part, it has felt like the machine is just sitting there, though occasionally I saw promise that it would start to move. After this promotion I really feel progress, like the wheels of the machine are starting to turn slowly, and just maybe some steam is building.
I would like to point out a wonderful group of people, who have helped me incredibly over the past year. The Writer’s Voice writing group of Eagle River, WI. If you are a beginning writer and live in north-central Wisconsin, please consider joining us. You will not find a more supportive and nurturing group of people to share your writing adventure with.
As I continue to grease the wheels of my writing machine, it’s nice to have some friends along for the ride.
Until next time,
