Naturally, I've been checking my email three times a day, waiting for their confirmation. Checking, checking, checking . . .
And it came!
They said that, barring any unforeseen circumstances, The Light Who Shines is going to be on a Kindle Daily Deal on Thursday, November 20th, 2014. It will be marked down to $1.99 for one day only.
Another author friend of mine was offered a one day Kindle Daily Deal and he sold like 3000 copies in one day!
I read up on this and sometimes a book can get to the Amazon #1 spot with 3500 buys in 1 day. So, I'm going to take advantage of this situation and see how high I can get in rank. Wouldn't it be awesome if The Light Who Shines made it to the #1 spot on Amazon, even if for one day only? I thought about this, and I'm committed to try.
If you want to help me try to get to #1, please mark your calendar and help me promote it on November 20th. I'll do a separate post that day you can share if you like. Some of my author friends and fans have already volunteered to do this and that is what gave me the idea. But any additional help is really appreciated.
Any way you want to share the news will help: Blog, Facebook, Twitter, Goodreads, GooglePlus, telling your work comrades about it . . . I've already signed up for every advertising option I can find that will take me on such short notice.
This is a huge stretch goal, but I'm going to work every free minute between now and Thursday to try to make this happen.
Now, for a little additional news. I've done a small make-over of the cover. The art is the same, but I've revamped the typography a bit and I think it makes it look that much sharper. What do you think?
And finally, I think that it is safe to say that The Light Who Binds, Book Two, will move into the revision phase by December 1, 2014.
