Where I was when I signed up for Instafreebie:
When I initially signed up for Instafreebie:
Then I joined a group of 35 authors to cross promote:
From 2 readers to 1,500 in less than a month!
I was over the moon with these results. Completely thrilled. I did lose subscribers when they unsubscribed from my welcome letter. My unsubscribe rate was 7%. I was still quite happy because I knew that my book might be seen and read by 1,700+ people.
And that's the most important thing: eyes on your book. Potential readers who may become fans after reading my first book and be interested to read the second.
So, that's the beauty of Instafreebie.
I'm still working through the data and preparing for a second launch. I'll keep you posted on that after I see how the first week goes. Release day is December 8th for my second book, Forfeiting Adam.
In the mean time, have a great week. Enjoy the process. It's slow going for me right now but I'm learning and hopeful for the future as I get better at running this business.
