Small successes :- Chronicles made it to No. 9 in the UK free anthology section
No. 12 in the US
BIG failures :-Less than 150 downloads again after 2 days :(
Verdict is that KDP weekends are useless for promos. Unless you get a BIG NAME to endorse your book. Somebody I knew had an expert in the field in which his book was based and had a great weekend. He now sells over 1,000 books a month.
There again, he did milk the cash cow. Original thought suffers at the cost of jumping on the band wagon.
To my good friends who helped me. Thank you for all you did, I wanted it to do better as a way of thanking you.
