On the utility of Amazon free promotions…


Well, it’s been over a month since I had the 5 day free promotion for my book Duty, Honor, Planet.  I gave away 2700 digital copies of the book in the hopes of generating sales of the sequels and generating more reviews.

Sales-wise, it’s hard to say how much of an effect the giveaway had.  Sales have been good, but then they were good a couple years ago when I released the second book in the Duty, Honor, Planet series, Honor Bound.  A better indicator of the effect on sales will be when I try another promotion in October.  But as for generating reviews, it did…a whole whopping five.  Needless to say, this is something of a disappointment.  2700 people downloaded the book, 5 left reviews.


Sometimes it’s discouraging being a writer.
