The Storm Killer free results

By Mike Jastrzebski

Sunday was the final day to get The Storm Killer free through Amazon. As I sit down to write this blog I’ve given away over 12,000 copies of The Storm Killer.

During the past four weeks I’ve given away over 28,000 books between my four titles. What strikes me as interesting is that The Storm Killer and Key Lime Blues (A Wes Darling Mystery) which were my first two books, were also the most downloaded of the four books.

Key Lime Blues (A Wes Darling Mystery) was downloaded over 11,000 times, Dog River Blues (A Wes Darling Mystery) was downloaded about 3,500 times and Weep No More was downloaded only 1500 times.

As for sales, so far this month I’ve sold 915 copies of Key Lime Blues, 398 copies of Dog River Blues, and 51 copies of Weep No More. Prior to this weekend I sold 53 copies of The Storm Killer and I’m looking forward to seeing what will happen now that the free offer is over.

If this past week’s sales of Key Lime Blues is any indication it should be a good week. I’ll post my sales next week.  The real question is will my sales be up or down in the coming weeks in comparison to my sales before I started giving away books.

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.
