The Performance of At Any Cost

On Monday I did a promotion in which I gave the book away for free for 24 hours (since extended by one day). So far, the book is doing quite well. As of this moment it has been downloaded 2200 times. It is #5 in Romantic Suspense, and #2 in “Spy Stories and Tales of Intrigue”. It is also #119 on the Amazon free store.

I think, just based on this, that my experiment into self-publishing AT ANY COST has been a success because with absolutely no publicity, I thought I’d be lucky to see 50 units downloaded. My only promotion was to excerpt a few pages on my blog, then announce the sale on Twitter.

My only intention was to get it in readers’ hands, and hopefully some of the 2200 who have downloaded it will read it and review it so that sales will continue after the promotion has ended.

I love this book, and I think it really does deserve to find an audience that loves it too.

  1. I was one of those who downloaded it when it was free and I finally read it last night! I was in love! Not only with the main characters but with Omar and Leah. Praying that you are going to do a sequel dedicated to those two (have you?). I would most definitely buy that right now!

    Oh gosh, thank you Angela. A few people have asked for a Leah and Omar sequel and I think I will probably write one. Thanks so much for your support!

    I read on my kindle fire and I totally enjoyed this book I not only loved Fallon and Tom , but also Leah and Omar . I found the end too abrupt , so when you write Omar and Leah story Please encorporate the end of Tom and Fallon story. I am waiting on that book right now please.

  4. Cara Ellison says:

    Wow, I’m so glad you liked it! I’m working on the sequel so hopefully it will be up by Christmas. And yes, several people mentioned the abrupt end to the book so I will flesh that out a bit.

    Thanks again for your comments!
