|#1 in Paranormal Ghost Romance and Psychic Romance,|
and The Haunting of Hillwood Farm also hit #1 in that
third category Paranormal Suspense that weekend!
This is my first experience with Kindle Free Days since 2013, when my publisher decided to partner with the new (at the time) program on Amazon called Kindle Select. Basically, to take advantage of "free days" within the Kindle Select program, a title has to be available exclusively (at that time) on Amazon. Gull Harbor had free days in 2013, and hit #1 as well. It's gone on since to hit #1 in the paid store on many occasions, which is a *really* exciting event, so I'm hopeful this new book will have similar good fortune.
Why give a book away for free, anyway? It certainly seems counter-intuitive, based on the amount of work that goes into writing a novel. But it's a way to gain exposure in an extremely crowded marketplace, and the hope is that readers who enjoy the free story will become fans of other titles by the same author.
It was certainly an exciting weekend and I'm grateful to all the readers who made it happen! Happy Reading :)
