1,000 Downloads of Hell Holes: What Lurks Below!

Downloads of my first book have continued with over 100 occurring in the last three days. Today, I broke the 1,000 total downloads mark between Barnes & Noble, iBooks, InstaFreebie, Kindle Direct Publishing (Amazon ebooks), and Smashwords. It is amazing what concentrating heavily on marketing for a couple of months can do. In a few days, I am going to look at my daily statistics and try to figure out which of the many marketing approaches I’ve been using have been the most effective. For example, one of the companies I’ve used for Book Tours seems to be far more effective than another. Similarly, book spotlights on some eNewsletters also seem better than others (probably due to subscription size and genre makeup).

Upcoming Interview on Blog Talk Radio

In about a couple of weeks, I am going to be interviewed live on the weekly podcast, Back Porch Writer. There is some confusion as to the exact date and time so I will let you know as soon as I know for sure. The podcast will be broadcast on Blog Talk Radio. This will be my first live interview as an author (I have had several written Q&A interviews), and I hope you tune in and join us for the 15 minute broadcast.
