It's been a good week book wise. 

Watch the video for a quick overview or scroll on down for the details ;)


This past week has been awesome! Here's a look at why...

The Box

My children's picture story book The Box was available as a free download on Kindle on 8th and 9th March and hit multiple best seller lists on Amazon for different countries during the promotion.

This is a screenshot taken on 8th March:

The Box then reached number 3 in basic concept books on 9th March (insert happy dance here)

It then received a couple of new 5 star reviews, One on Amazon US:

And one on Amazon Italy:

Needless to say I was pleased with the results of this promotion.

Italian for Tourists

Then on 10th March I logged in to check for sales and discovered that Italian for Tourists was back in the best seller lists again. Over the moon about that as I wasn't running again promotions for that one and it was in the paid category.

Gunpowder

The good news doesn't stop there either! Gunpowder (KOSMOS Episode Two) is free from 10th -12th March and guess what... it hit the best seller lists too! 

On the US site it reached number 10 for historical fiction on 10th March

As you can see it's been an awesome week for me and my books. I do have a small favour to ask you though that would make it even better.... please take a minute to leave a review for any of my books you've read. 

Reviews are so important. They help other readers decide if the book is for them and therefore can be the deal closer on new sales. They also activate the Amazon algorithms which means that Amazon starts pushing the book in their promotions. This is huge for authors as can mean the book gets seen by a much larger audience. And last, but by no means least, it gives me the chance to see what you like about my books (and what can be improved) so I can make better books in the future. It's also probably the most effective form of motivation to write more, when a reader tells you they enjoyed your book. 

Not sure what to write in a review?

A review doesn't have to be long. Just a couple of sentences will do (unless of course you want to write more ;)).

What did you like about the book?
Who would you recommend the book for?
