Amazon KDP Select: GIFTED Topped Free Charts! (Thank You!)

From April 30 – May 2, GIFTED, A DONOVAN CIRCUS NOVEL was free to download for your Kindle. For 3 days, I did nothing but refresh my pages and watch the number of downloads tick upward, my awe and excitement punctuated by my disbelief and terror. Between 3 days and several countries, the fact that my first book is now in the hands of over 20,000 people is both amazing and scary as hell.

Now, I know that it doesn’t necessarily mean all 20K people will read it. There are tons of folks out there who download only because it’s free. This doesn’t mean that I’ll even get many reviews out of it. (I will say I’ve already gotten 6 back, which probably makes it  worth it!) However, my sales have jumped, skyrocketed in my case, and while this may only be for a short time, I can’t tell you how amazed I am to see those numbers go up every time I check the page. It might not mean much to others. But it means a LOT to me. As for the KDP program, I’d say it was well worth it.

It might mean my name is out there more. It might make me more recognizable when someone goes to look at my work or buy my second book. It also bumps my ranking up in the Amazon secret sauce algorithms, which means better exposure. And that, my friends, is a win in my book.

Thanks to the most supportive group I could ever know, thanks to you the readers, thanks to the promoters who helped me with their knowledge and expertise, GIFTED, A DONOVAN CIRCUS NOVEL made it to the top in the free charts.

In the Amazon Best Sellers Top Free categories, it hit #1 in Science Fiction Adventure, #1 in Fantasy, and perhaps most exciting to me, #5 in the Top 100. My goal was to break into the Top 10 and I’m beyond thrilled it surpassed my expectations into the Top 5.

This is because of you. There are no words to express my appreciation, no thanks enough I can give to tell you just how much your support means to me. I’m honored you’ve joined me for this journey and can’t wait to see where it takes us.
