Latest KDP Countdown Results

I'm starting another Amazon Kindle Direct Publishing (KDP) Countdown Deal today (Mirrors & Mist for $0.99), so I figured I'd better post the results from my last promotion. On July 10 through July 17, 2017, I held a $0.99 sale on Crimson & Cream, Book I of The Oxbow Kingdom Trilogy. As I recently switched Crimson & Cream exclusively to KDP, it was the first Countdown Deal for this book.

My goal on this post is to share the experience I gained from this promotion, and hopefully help you see some of the strategies that worked for me, as well as identify the mistakes that didn't pay off their investment. In addition to sharing here, I posted the results from this event on Indielisters.

For this latest book promotion, I ran different ads on each day. Below are the advertising sites, with the ad's cost, followed by the date the ad ran, and the number of sales that occurred on that day:

Cover Reveal for Warlock & Wyrm

Coming Soon--Warlock & Wyrm, Book III of The Oxbow Kingdom Trilogy.

While Jetsam saved his mentor Seryn from execution, a shape-shifting imposter poisoned the royal couple and kidnapped Princess Giselle.
