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.

Amazing News About My First Novel

January 17th is one of the most under-appreciated, wonderful, rich, and fulfilling days of the year filled with more purpose and meaning than any other day in human history as far as I know.

It’s my birthday.

It’s also going to be the day when Daylight Hours will be 100% FREE to download from Amazon.com for your Kindle and Kindle Apps. I know, I’m an attention whore. What can you do?

So, what does this mean? Well, starting at roughly midnight on one of the most spectacular days in human history, you will be able to download Daylight Hours for free. I know, it’s pretty crazy. This was my first novel and Kris Grant is a very unique character in a very stale genre. If you love urban fantasy, vampire novels, or action and adventure with a little paranormal fantasy, then you’ll love Daylight Hours. Is it better than True Blood (every season after season 1)? If you’re a fan, give my book a chance and tell me yourself.

January 17th will not only be me celebrating the birth of myself, but I will also be blowing up the internet with posts and links and more posts and links promoting the book on the one day that it will be completely free to read. There’s no reason not to download the book to your phone or any device you have with Kindle on it because, well, when is anything in this world free?

I want to thank everyone in advance already for any and all support. As an indie author, it’s rough trying to break into the scene of being a “published author”. I’m gonna give it my all and hopefully enough people download and read the first novel in the Kris Grant Series.
