Run From The Reapers is climbing the Charts

Words: 5,424
Time: 4pm - 2:30am (3 or 4 hrs of breaks)
Mood: Great
Impression: It's good

So I've had a couple of interesting things go on in the last couple of days. First Fixing Cupid has gotten another 5-star review. This time it's on Barnes and Noble. Second, Fixing Cupid is being offered in a free promotion and 2,500 people downloaded it in the first day pushing it to #3 in Free humor and #75 free over all. It's nice that people find the book interesting. Very few free books get this type of attention.

The most important thing that has gone on though is that Run From The Reaper, which was offered for a free promotion made it to #2 in Occult fiction and #17 in thrillers before it was taken off the free list. That's not the great news though. The great news is that once it came off of the free list, it started selling. The book is now climbing the charts. This morning it was #82 in occult and right now it's #57.

I have to say that this makes me feel a lot better because I was feeling a tremendous amount of distress because I kept thinking that it is a great story with a great cover and blurb yet people weren't buying it. I had come to believe that it was because people didn't know it existed. It seems that it was true.

I'm not sure how long it will keep climbing because the price keeps shifting between $1.99 and $2.99. But today alone it has sold more books than it has in it's pre-free list history. That feels nice.

The book I'm really excited about becoming paid again is Fixing Cupid. I have always believed that this book has the most upside and its number of free downloads has proven my point. So when this book becomes paid again, it should sell even more copies than RFTR did. And finally the book will be worth all of the effort I put in it. But we'll have to see.
