Marketing Your Book: Part 6, Free Promotions

My book, Walk Forward, is free today at, and so far it has been downloaded almost as many copies as it has sold in its first two weeks, the book being two weeks old today!

What is fascinating is that sold copies increased immediately before the free book promotion began.

I do not see the ratings listed on the book during its free book promotion, but assume the ratings return after the promotion ends.

One side, Free Book Dude, sent me an email last night with the link where the book will be posted today.

Since the promotion began, this morning at 12:00 AM (Pacific Time), the book has been borrowed in the Kindle Lending Library too!

It is now 9:30 AM and I will add to this blog later in the day.

It is noon now and about 10 books are being downloaded for free per hour.

One of the best blogs for finding places to advertise the book is:
as most of the links work and the explanation Katrina gives for each site is valuable.

The site that gave me the best promo and let me know about it is Free Book Dude at

Per statistics, read this:

Amazon Best Sellers Rank: #1,717 Free in Kindle Store (See Top 100 Free in Kindle Store)
