My Little Pet Dragon Promotional Numbers

Last Wednesday, I finally got around to putting up My Little Pet Dragon as a free promotion. I wasn't sure what to expect, but knew that it could potentially do big things. Boy was I in for a surprise!

The first day went surprisingly well, moving 6,000 copies and putting me in the top 500. Thursday proved to be even better, moving another 10,500 copies, and putting me at the top of the Free Children's E-book rankings. There was a little back and forth between the top three rankings, but by midnight I had seized the coveted #1 spot, where I would stay for the remainder of my 5-day promotion. The 3 days following I moved 11,000, 14,500, and 15,800 copies respectively, giving me a grand total of 56,800 giveaways. I peaked at #2 overall in the Kindle Store, second only to Hamster Habitat, a computer game by none other than Amazon themselves. Although I never did occupy the #1 spot overall, I did have the top free e-book since Hamster Habitat is a game, not an e-book.

In the days following the promotion I've fared well. Currently I'm #104 in the Kindle Store (I got as high as #98 and slipped a little), #96 in Kindle E-books, #4 in Children's Books (slipping from #2) and #6 in Children's E-books. I've sold 1,000 copies in a little less than 3 days, and hundreds of my other children's books. For the month of January, I've moved 63,000 e-books (over 2,000 paid copies), and still have 6 days left to go. Expect big things from me in 2012 as I transition to being a full time writer!

Pigtastic Free Giveaway Results

Many thanks to everyone who downloaded a copy of Pigtastic over the weekend. I hope you enjoyed it! This was my most successful giveaway in a non-Christmas month, moving 2,500+ copies in just 5 days. The last day of the promotion proved to be the busiest, moving 700+ copies in 24 hours. Not bad for an obscure children's book.

While it would be great if these were real sales, the buzz created during this brief promotion should propel it to about 5-10 copies in sales/day. I'll keep you posted. At very least, little piggy made a lot of kids extremely happy. Even better, they got exposed to an awesome message.

More promotions will get underway in the coming weeks. Keep your eyes peeled. Big things are about to happen!
