What a great Tuesday. I woke up to discover my boxed set featured on Apple iBooks. I’m actually in the process of lowering the price to 7.99 in preparation for a promo of book 1 this weekend (so as not to “rip off” anyone who thinks they’re getting a $5 deal), so if anyone’s interested in picking up the book, maybe hang on until tomorrow, after it’s 7.99 everywhere.
P.T. Hylton made the astute observation that there are 3 “Awesome Indies” being featured right now on Apple: Harvey Click, Carol Ervin, and P.T. Hylton. In this screenshot, you can see Carol’s book just to the right of “The Martian,” and my boxed set below it. We’re cornering Andy Weir to steal his mojo!
What can I say? I’m loving my break from Kindle Unlimited. I do miss the additional ranking on Amazon, but building an audience on other platforms is — for me — a long term strategy. Also, it’s really cool seeing my book at the top of the screen like this.
* UPDATE 1* — Isn’t it cool how Lee Child’s book and mine sort of match? I love unintentional awesomeness. (cover design by Lindy Moone)
* Update 2 * — I didn’t want to spam people with another screenshot post, so I’ll just post today’s here. Thief’s Odyssey is at #38 🙂
* Update 3 * — 32 this morning! I think this might be my last day in this promotion. Won’t know till later this afternoon.
What a great Sunday. Better than that other Sunday — last Sunday. That was the Sunday where I hadn’t sold anything on iBooks since putting my book there a month ago. Haha, those days are gone, never to come again. I’ve already quit my job and taken out a loan for a private jet. Not just any private jet — this one’s a prototype developed by NASA.
Before I get carried away, here’s the latest screen shot, which I took using my brand new 120 processor super computer (also developed by NASA):
I don’t wanna sound unprofessional, but… Ya’ got served, Lee Child! Take that James Patterson! And you too David Baldacci…!
