PEOPLE SURE DO love a sale!
To capitalize on the Halloween season, my publisher, Leisure Books put the e-book edition of my latest novel Siren up for sale for a few days at $2.99 over at Barnes & Noble. That book took an instant vault in sales and just missed breaking into the Top 100 list there last week.
This week, Leisure has the e-book version of my first novel Covenant on sale for $0.99 at all of the key outlets — Amazon, Borders, Barnes & Noble…. And hell yeah, price makes the difference — on Halloween the book had hit the Top 10 on Amazon, and when I woke up this morning, it had cracked the Top 100 on Barnes & Noble. By lunchtime it was hovering around the Top 50 at B&N and I sent out a few notices on Twitter (and thanks for all my friends who reposted those!) to hopefully help “nudge” another sale or two to get it into the Top 40.
It worked! Just a little while ago I took a look at it had reached #27 — the highest any of my books in any format have ever gotten on Barnes & Noble. I don’t know if it will ultimately crack the Top 20… but hey, I can say now that for a day at least, I had a “Top 40 Hit.” And I just looked and see that it’s also ranking at #30 on Borders.com too.
How cool is that? You can see where it stands now here: Amazon, Borders, Barnes & Noble.
