Halloween eBook Deal

Since November 2016 is shaping up to be a scary month (the U.S. election, a dentist appointment, jury duty, 50th birthday, and the corresponding colonoscopy), I'm having an e-book sale before the fun starts. This week (October 20 through the 23) I'll be selling my epic fantasy adventure Mirrors & Mist (Book II of the Oxbow Kingdom Trilogy) for $0.99 (2/3 off) on Amazon via a Kindle Countdown deal. In addition, you can also grab a free ebook copy of Crimson & Cream (Book I of The Oxbow Kingdom Trilogy) on Smashwords with this coupon code: ZU23J.

If you'd like to see what others are saying about this YA epic fantasy adventure, take a peek at some reviews here. And, if you know of any avid fantasy readers looking to add to their library, please share.

Regarding my advertising plan for this promotion, I invested $96 in three sites; BKnights (via Fiverr) ($11), BookSends ($45), and Bargain Booksy ($40). I applied to Ereader News Today (ENT) again, but was not accepted this time, either. This will be my first try with BookSends, and I also remembered to implement the lessons learned from my last promotion:
  • I scheduled one promo per each day of the Countdown to better quantify the results for each specific vendor. I'll be on BKnights the 20th, BookSends the 21st, and Bargain Booksy the 22nd.
  • I also set my promotion start time on KDP to match with the promo site start times, so that when they pull data from Amazon, the sale price of Mirrors & Mist comes up (and not the regular price).  Last time, my promo started at 8 am Pacific time zone, and BKnights pulled their data from Amazon at 8 am Eastern time zone, where Mirrors & Mist was still listed at regular price for 3 more hours.
Author Update: I'm working with my editor on Warlock & Wyrm. It's a slow process, but we're about 25% through, so I'm hoping that I can give my beta readers a Christmas present this year. What I'm finding different for this book is that I'm actually adding text through the editing process (instead of cutting it out). My editor seems to think I did a lot of rushing so far, and now I'm putting a little more meat on the bones.

Happy Halloween!
