Giving Away #FREE #Kindle #Books…Oh the Anxiety!

Monday July 10, 2017, I began giving six of my novels away on Amazon Kindle.

I try to run some sort of promotion every six months. Last year, I ran the promotion over the 4th of July holiday with just okay results. I spent a good deal of time planning this promotion over a month in advance and began scheduling ads on various book advertising sites that also send out email blasts and have a great many subscribers.

I applied as well for a BookBub feature but yet again (for about the 10th time) my book was not chosen. Believe me, I know there are authors who’ve submitted ten times that so the rejection isn’t anything new and certainly not personal. That isn’t what makes me anxious.

It’s the personal amount of advertising I do here on my web site as well as Twitter, Facebook and Instagram. Believe me, I’m working it with all I’ve got! Then periodically throughout the day, I check my stats on KDP to see how it’s going and then my ranking on Amazon. Can you say STRESS?!

Meanwhile, I’m trying to work my day job, be normal and not think too much about it. Ha! As if that’s going to happen. I’m a writer. My brain doesn’t ever shut off, even when I’m asleep.

I’m trying to stay optimistic but to be honest, I’m just not seeing the results I’d hoped for. Sometimes you win and sometimes you lose. The best you can do is stay optimistic and be grateful that at least your books are getting out there. At least with what little budget you have, you’re doing something to try and reach your goals.

Two and half more days to go! I’d love to hit 10,000 downloads by Midnight Friday. Would you like to help me?

All you need to do is share this post and magic could happen!
