This week marked the launch of my new middle grade book “That Pet Finder Kid – Catnapped”. Thank you for all the support from my twitter peeps and my facebook friends for helping me have a great release day! The book managed to climb to #3268 out of over 8,000,000 books currently in print on Amazon. Below is the graph…
As an indie (self published) author, launching a book is extremely tough. You have to work with almost no money for advertising, so you have to rely on your social networks to spread the word. My peeps did an amazing job, but what now?
Well, I released the book trailer, hoping to drum up some interest. Check it out below:
I certainly was lucky to convince my voice over guy, and cover artist to do a little extra work for me… for a steal. They did a great job! I’m currently stumbling through setting up a pay per click add on youtube to try to get more views… We’ll see how that goes.
I’m also finishing up a free giveaway of 3 autographed copies of the paperback on goodreads. The giveaway ends October 21, so hurry if you want to enter! You can enter right here if you’re interested:
I’m also running a little “pay per click” add on goodreads to see if I can drum up some interest there.
And next, I think I’m going to put both my books in the KDP selects program and see what happens there. KDP Selects allows Amazon’s premium subscribers to download free movies and ebooks… also comes with free shipping. I had pretty good luck when I enrolled Gasparilla’s Treasure in KDP Selects back in March, and it may be time to try it again.
