How I Sold 813 Copies of My Novel In One Day

Kindle, je t’aime.

It’s simple, really.

I have no idea…

I sold the Kindle version of my novel, Daylight Hours for free yesterday and sold 813 free copies. Eight hundred and thirteen…Jesus. All I can say is that I’m incredibly grateful for even one person buying my novel. I felt like a kid on Christmas morning waking up and looking at the sales reports. It was a gift that I hardly believe and I owe it to everyone who supported me.

Daylight Hours was #1 in Top Free Kindle books at one point and #2 for Kindle Fantasy-Paranormal genre. I didn’t hold the place long, but it stayed #11 and #13 for a while after that. This is beyond me. I promoted the book for my birthday for one day only and I was expecting to sell fifty, maybe one hundred at the most. I could have never hoped for what happened. I can’t wait to see reviews start popping up. Good or bad, I take criticism well and feedback only makes me a stronger writer. I can’t put into words how excited I am right now and how seeing those sales has invigorated my writing spirit.

I’ve got two more free promotions to use up and I’ll make sure the world knows when.

Thank you again everyone, especially all my friends and family who wished me a happy birthday and bought my book.

Now, if I can get half of those people who bought the book to review it, I might be able to get The Kris Grant Series picked up by a publishing house.
