KDP Select update

By Mike Jastrzebski

Just a brief update today on my free offerings through Amazon Prime. The free offer on Dog River Blues (A Wes Darling Mystery) ended last Monday. The total free downloads were 3,322 copies over five days. Prior to the free offer I was selling between 8 and 10 copies a day. Since the offer ended I’ve been averaging 17 copies per day. Sunday I ran a sponsorship with Pixel of Ink. Sales are up substantially but I will not be able to tell how the free offer affected sales going forward because of the sponsorship.

Friday, the 3rd, I ran Key Lime Blues (A Wes Darling Mystery) for free for two days. During this time the book was downloaded 10,613 times. It’s too early to judge sales but I will post early results next week.

Sunday I also listed Weep No More free for one additional day. Next week The Storm Killer will be free Friday the 10th through Sunday the 12th.

About Mike Jastrzebski

In September of 2003 my wife, Mary, and I moved aboard our 36-foot Sailboat, Roughdraft. It was our intention to take the boat south from Minnesota to warmer climates where I would write a novel. Six years later I have completed 3 mystery novels. I have published the first two books, The Storm Killer and Key Lime Blues as e-books and trade paperbacks. The third book, Dog River Blues will be released in early 2011. It is my intention to use this blog to share what I’ve learned while trying to get published. I will also blog about the trials and tribulations of living on a sailboat. We sailed the boat from Minnesota to Mobile, Alabama where we lived for two years. We also spent three months living in Key West. Currently, the boat is docked in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. In 2011 we plan to take the boat to the Caribbean where we plan to drift until it is no longer fun.
