Kindle Countdown for Blood Toy Ends Tomorrow!

Wow, time flies! My first ever Kindle Countdown deal is ending in 28 hours.  So I did some number crunching tonight to see how it’s going.  In the last six days, I have 1) sold as many Kindle editions and 2) generated half as many Kindle Edition Normalized Pages Read as in the 25 days prior to the sale (including pre-orders).  I also ranked as high as #186 in the Dark Fantasy sub-genre of Horror.  While I did make it on the top 100 Best Seller list of Erotic Horror not long after launch (and on the same page as Laurell K. Hamilton no less), I believe the Dark Fantasy genre is ultimately a better fit for me–despite Blood Toy’s admittedly violent sexual content–so the higher ranking in this category is a big win to me.  Off-hand, I know half a dozen promo sites included Blood Toy in their bargain deal e-mail blasts.  Considering all these cost me was the time it took to submit details about my deal, I would definitely consider those a worthwhile investment.

While I am not quitting my day job any time soon, I believe Blood Toy is off to a great start with respectable sales figures. The Kindle Unlimited program has increased my exposure by at least 50%.  It is hard to say for sure since I can only see the number of pages read vs. the number of units downloaded, however if I divide the number of pages read by the number of pages in the book, I get a number that equates to half of my total sales.  I don’t think I would have sold as many copies on other venues (B&N, iTunes, etc.) so I will definitely be re-enrolling in KU to take advantage of Kindle Unlimited and Kindle Countdown next quarter!

If you haven’t gotten your copy of Blood Toy yet for 99 cents, last chance!
