Unbeknownst to me, a company/website named eBook Daily is somehow affiliated with Amazon/Kindle. On Sunday, I was notified via a tweet that they had 'highlighted' my first book, When Rome Stumbles, in their newsletter which was sent to over 23,000 subscribers.
Needless to say, I WAS FRIGGIN' ECSTATIC!!
Now all of the numbers I was seeing on the Kindle Direct Publishing (KDP) website made sense... there were literally thousands of downloads for all four of my books as a result of my generosity in making them all free for four days.
Here's the link they sent to me via email:
Granted, I'm missing out on some serious royalties (over a grand) as a result, but the point of the freebies was to expand the audience and generate electronic page turns... hopefully that pays off several fold!
REMINDER: Today is the last day to get all four books in Kindle format for free!
