During our most challenging struggles it can seem like no one is there to help us. The loneliness seems to intensify when one carries much responsibility on their shoulders. What I learned is that support was always there when I truly needed it, not necessarily when I thought I did. Sometimes, our loneliest, most painful times occur during a phase when we learn to expand ourselves beyond our own expectations. This lesson reiterated itself over the past two days during my free promotion for CAMILEON: Beyond The Veil. My online friends banded together and showed me immense support that greatly contributed to its success. Here are my results (click image to enlarge):
Within hours of starting the promotion, my novel soared to the top 50, then the top 20. By Wednesday evening CAMILEON: Beyond The Veil had claimed the #4 spot in the contemporary fantasy category. The following morning it reached #2 in the category and #9 in science fiction!
CAMILEON: Beyond The Veil also reached the #8 and #12 spots in the UK in the contemporary fantasy and science fiction categories, respectfully.
Again, whether you helped me spread the word about my special promotion or downloaded a copy, I extend my sincerest gratitude to you. Thank you so much!
Early this morning, CAMILEON: Beyond The Veil returned to its original price of $2.99, which is still a great deal, considering the incredible journey it contains. Then again, I’m the author, so I guess my opinion is somewhat biased. To those who have already downloaded their copy, I guess you’ll be the judge. To those who haven’t, I’ve created a free five chapter PDF sample so you can decide whether or not to explore the astonishing world that awaits you.
Congratulations on your standing in the free category and best wishes for a move from that position in free category to the left category 🙂 I will read your book over the course of next week and am looking forward to it.
Thanks for your kind words, Nicola. I look forward to hearing what you think of my work. Happy reading!
Those are great results, Shykia. I hope the momentum continues and you see lots of sales in the days ahead, it’s a great book!
Thank you very much, Martin! That means a lot to me. I wish you continued success as well.
That is fantastic Shykia. May the word of mouth from the free promotion see your book continue to sell well. That is great how well it did in the freebies. My wish for you is that it do as well in the regular sales.
Thanks, Tasha. Time will tell. Fingers crossed.
I’m so glad the free download was successful, Shykia. I know what a great writer you are and I hope it brought the exposure you so deserve. My reading time has been nearly nil of late, but CAMILEON: Beyond the Veil eager awaits on my Kindle.
Thanks Lisette. Your kind words truly honor me. I hope you enjoy my novel whenever you get around to it.
