So, I’m getting a little excited. In four days, The Redemption of Mr. Sturlubok will be officially released. It’s the first time that I’ve written (well, co-written) a book with the intention of releasing it as an ebook. It’s the first time that I’ve planned on the publishing date well in advance and have had time to send out review copies and set up advertising. All in all, this feels very new and exciting. I’ve been waiting for this moment for several months, and I feel that I’ve done what I can as a unknown author.
In terms of advertising, I have The Redemption… set to the the Kindle Nation Daily daily sponsor on April 30th, I have a banner ad scheduled at KindleBoards for both the 30th as well as May 4th, and I’ve been experimenting with some facebook ads (to some limited success) and have a couple of facebook ads scheduled to start running from Saturday onwards. So, with all these things at once, I won’t know what is affecting what, but hopefully things will move fast.
And, again, to anyone who used the Smashwords coupon for the free complete edition, it would be great if you could leave a review at the Amazon site at anytime.
