Broken Ties  - ENGLISH NEW

Broken Ties

Last week was meant to be pretty uneventful. Write a few  thousand words of Keepers (the last book in the Mentalist series), run a promo with ManyBooks to get some exposure for the recently updated cover of Broken Ties, help a friend beta-read her novel, do some real bill paying work (ah, the joys of being an architect), and find time to warm up my vocal chords to sing with my choir at the London Marathon. All in all, a busy week but nothing too spectacular. And then this happened.

I knew the promo ad would make a (little) difference to downloads but I was totally overwhelmed by the boost it actually gave. And it wasn’t just Amazon that yielded results – my Smashwords, iBooks and Barnes and Noble downloads had considerably  increased activity as well. I was still getting over the excitement of finally seeing Broken Ties at the top of an Amazon genre list when this happened too.

The Altercation of Vira by Kenechi Udogu (+ free copy promotion)

After many months of teasing about the release of this book, I finally did it (quietly) last Friday. The Altercation of Vira is officially available for purchase on Amazon! There were a few initial hiccups with the display of the cover image, which is why I am only publicizing it now but that all seems to be sorted out, phew.

All you need to do it click on the book image on Amazon.com or Amazon.co.uk  (yes, these links will take you there) and it will open up the first three chapters – about 10% of the book.

One good thing about signing up to Select is that I can put up my book for free promotion offers on Amazon.com  and Amazon.co.uk (sorry to my Europe readers, it doesn’t stretch as far as here *I’ve just found out that it’s Amazon worldwide so get clicking!*). The first of these promotions will run from 12am Pacific time on Tuesday 7th February till 11.59pm on Wednesday 8th February 2012. There is no catch. You can buy the book for nothing, zilch, nada, zero dollars. Please feel free to spread the word about the book promotion. As an indie writer, at the moment, I’m more interested in Continue reading
