Sunday Word Count — 6,000

(he has yellow eyes!)

(he has yellow eyes!)

Yeah, it’s a Scutt Farkus. It’s been one of those weeks — a great week for everything but writing. I had a Pixel of Ink ad on Friday, a Bookbub yesterday, One Hundred Free Books and a few other sites picked me up, and today I have an Ereader News Today ad going out.  As of this blog post, I’m ranked #7 in the kindle store (see previous post, which I’ve updated to as the rank’s improved), and now I see this cool little widget over on the amazon page — some sort of “author ranking” system Amazon is beta testing.  Can’t believe I’m #82 (not gonna last, hehe).

Free promo day!

Technically yesterday was free promo day, but today’s also free promo day — in a big way! So here are the results as of 5:27 p.m. for Kick: Screen Shot 2014-11-08 at 5.24.08 PM Rather than continuously spam my poor subscribers with a bunch of “me me me,” I’ll just update this post as the book goes up in rank. No way am I hitting #1…there’s someone absolutely killing it there right now. More power to her. Screen Shot 2014-11-08 at 8.21.25 PM

Free promo update: #39 in top 100 Free, #1 Paranormal and Urban, #1 Dark Fantasy

Despite not doing any advance placement with the various free promo sites out there, my free promo was wildly successful. One of the reasons  was that Pixel of Ink picked me up, as did onehundredfreebooks.com and a few other sites — without my asking them.  Very nice of them, big help.  I also got a lot of support from folks on Facebook and Twitter, so big thanks to everyone there.

The promo expires tomorrow morning sometime around 4am.  Hopefully “Kick” can maintain steam until then.

Here’s a quick snapshot of where it’s at now:
