I made the conscious decision today to not promote Stormcaller on social media. The book had a good head of steam, so I wanted to see how much Amazon’s mechanics would help. I assumed that today would be a slowdown day, that it would drop out of the top 10, possibly off the Fantasy chart altogether.
I have no future as a prognosticator if this is any indicator. When I checked in at 1710, Stormcaller was #6, with a total of 2224 copides downloaded. At 1750, I was at #3 with 2316 copies downloaded.
Wasn’t this supposed to be the slow day? Amazon’s day of rest, as it were?
I’d like to thank the Academy, all my friends, my social media links, and the amazing Evil Eye Cover o’ Doom. And Voltron.
So, I checked back around 2000. And then my jaw dropped off my face.
Copies downloaded were:
- Day 1: 615
- Day 2: 828
- Day 3: 1,382
So there it is. Stormcaller climbed to the top of the Paranormal Fantasy chart. It reached #11 in Fantasy, and #183 overall in the Kindle Store. Over 2,800 copies downloaded in total. By pure coincidence, I’m listening to Bill Conti’s Yeager’s Triumph. I reattached my jaw, but it’s still working weird. Can’t stop grinning. Even with one day left, I declare Operation GIVEAWAY a huge success. More than I dared to dream.
