The countdown to when the Kindle edition of The Complete Bubby Anthology goes on sale for FREE is just days away.
As suggested on multiple sites, I was encouraged to find outlets to spread the word of this free promotion. However, I'll leave that discussion for a future post.
In the meantime, I was curious to see what would happen if I gave away a book for free, but didn't tell anyone about it. Enter "Project Solo," in which Bubby I - Wanted: A Hero like None Other would be offered as the sacrificial lamb on Friday and Saturday to see what would happen.
Prior to the promotion, the book had peaked at #115,587 (in the Paid list).
When I looked at the book on Friday, shortly after noon, the book was already at #4,096 (in the Free list)!
By the end of the day on Friday, it had moved up to #3,307!
Imagine my joy on Saturday morning when I saw that Bubby I had reached #3,257:
Alas, it seems that Saturday morning was to be its peak. Slowly, Bubby I began to fall. At the time of this post, with about three hours to go, the book is at #4,644 (What the book will be ranked when it returns to the Paid list is difficult to determine).
As I saw the rankings slip, I was tempted to announce the promotion to build support. Alas, the scientist in me continues to want to see how this fares against the leap I hope The Complete Bubby Anthology takes (assuming that all my promotional efforts pay off).
Anyway, I hope to see you Wednesday, when we'll drive for #1.
