HOOD is on sale for $0.99!

So the Ebooks have grown ripe on the vine, thus I have harvested them and decided to sell them for 0.99$ on Amazon.

That, or yknow, it’s promo time. For 7 days HOOD will be 0.99$ so get em while they’re hot! If you know anyone into post-apoc or just loves a good story, they can pick one up for a buck. 879 words per penny. Don’t make me think about it in any other terms than that or my head might explode.

If you enjoyed HOOD, let people know about it! Now’s the time for people to pick up a copy if they want to give it a shot.

It really means the world to me if you share this book with people. I’m incredibly proud of the success it’s had so far. But I want more people to enjoy the story, so I’ll love you forever if you let someone know about it 🙂

And don’t worry, I’m hard at work on BOOK 3, American Rebirth. It’s gonna take some time given how much my life has exploded lately, but the story is moving along. I’m pretty excited to see it finished.

Have a good weekend you savages,

Six more days.

Six more days.

It’s creeping up now. The day of WHISKEY’s release.

The anticipation of things to come is always thrilling, isn’t it? It’s the unknown, the unpredictable power of uncertainty as it drives us through our lives.

I can’t wait.

I’d really love for life to calm down a bit to let me unwind. Grad school needs to chill the fuck out.

But despite the whirring stress gyro in my head, I try to take the time and pull it all apart at the seams. I think about all the stuff I’m grateful for, all the good things in my life and all the stress kind of just melts away.

It also makes working on stuff way easier when you’re relaxed. Workin’ on shit when you’re stressed is like washing Tabasco sauce out of your eyes with battery acid. Don’t do it.

oh and before I ramble too much:

HOOD is on sale for 0.99$! Get your copy now for a damn good post-apoc adventure that will make you feel all the feels!

Free Audiobook for review trade!

Free Audiobook for review trade!

Alright people, so here’s the deal:

I’ve got these promotional codes for a free copy of the HOOD Audiobook–Amazon/ACX gives them to producers of new books in order to generate buzz/reviews for your book.

And so, with that in mind, I’ve decided to do a giveaway!

I’m going to give away 5 codes to five random people that comment on this post in exchange for an honest review of the audiobook on Audible! Just write your name and make it known you want in in the comments section, and you’ll be eligible 🙂 I’ll make a seperate post announcing the winners when it’s done! Also, if you want to include your email for me to contact you directly, that’s fine too.

I’m literally going to use a random number generator to decide who wins.

But wait, there’s more. If selected, I’m going to put you on my audiobook review list. Every time I publish an audiobook, you’ll get a free copy of it in exchange for a review!

However, if I give you an audiobook and you don’t review it within two months, I’ll have to take you off the list (if something is slowing down your reading in your life, this isn’t a hard and fast rule but ya gotta let me know!)

So it’s real simple. If you’re selected, I give you a free audiobook in exchange for the listen and honest review. Do so, and you’ll get the audiobook for my next book for free next time around 🙂 It keeps on rolling!

For the winners, if y’all could give an amazon review and an audible audiobook review… that’d be amazing!

Good luck y’all,

Evan

For those of you who have, spread the word! I’d say it’s pretty damn good value to get for a buck if I do say so myself.

AUDIOBOOK UPDATE:

My voice actor, Mike Jameson, has been doing a fantastic job and I’m ecstatic on how it’s coming out. We’re most of the way through the book, so hopefully I should have it up for sale soon!

STOP…Promo time! (dances)

STOP…Promo time! (dances)

There comes a time in every man’s life when he has to run a promotion for his book.

And my man I mean man or woman. And by man or woman I mean an author.

WE’RE OFF TO A GOOD START.

So anywho, I was pretty excited to run my first stack promo for HOOD. Here’s the lowdown:

I’m selling around 20-22 books a day before all this stuffs. I’m getting around 13,000 pagereads a day.


Day 1  4/21/16, KCD sale, HOOD is $0.99, no promos. This is my control in the scientifical sense. Extra scientifical.

SALES: 53

KU PAGEREADS: 15,190


Day 2, HOOD is still $0.99 with the KCD, Promo sites: ROBINREADS and EbooksForFree

SALES: 118

KU PAGEREADS: 9,231


Day 3, HOOD is still $0.99 with the KCD, Promo sites: BOOKBARBARIAN and EreaderNewsToday

SALES: 242

KU PAGEREADS: 11,473


Total money spent on Promos: $70.00  breakdown: (30 ENT, 20 BookBarbarian, 20 Robinreads)

Total books sold during promos: 360

Took a lil bit of a hit on KU pagreads, but no idea if that was due to the promotions or not.

But I more than doubled my control on day 2, and more than quadrupled it day 3. If I subtract my control from each day (assuming that many people would’ve bought my book on amazon anyway) I still sold 254 books (presumably) in total via the promotions. That means I came out quite a decent bit in the black, in the pure profit sense. My gross profit more than doubled the money I spent on the promos.

As for my ranking? Highest so far:

f739a5f0b526fc9060cb149f5dec6c37

 

Conclusion? BOOYA. In the words of the Firebat: Slammin’.

Now I’m excited to see what the ‘long tail’ of this is. Let alone the rest of the KCD!

HOOD on sale for 0.99$! The Promo begins.

HOOD on sale for 0.99$! The Promo begins.

I’m excited. Maybe too much so.

High expectations and whatnot.

Today begins my second-ever Kindle Countdown Deal, and HOOD is on sale for 0.99$ for a few days to begin it! I’m very curious to see how it fares, now that the book has a goodly bit more visibility.

I’m also running an “experiment.”

Today is my “control” if you will. KCD begins, 99c, to test how many sales it gets without any promotions. Au natural, what can you do for me, Amazon?

Tomorrow and the day after, I have some stack promos lined up. Promotions for my book will be on BookBarbarian, RobinReads, Ebooksforfree, and Ereader News Today. Those will be my “variables” which I hope of course fly through the roof. 😀

So I’m very excited and interested to see what the short and long term results of promotional visibility will be for the book, after it’s been hurled out before the eyes of so many readers!

I’m going to do a write-up on the results after it’s all said and done, I think. Some of my fellow Kboarders have done the same and I’d love to share my experiences and whatever information I can gather.

*puts on lab coat, evil goggles and cackles maniacally*

Now all I need is some menacing lightning.
