Kindle Select – final thoughts

By Mike Jastrzebski

This will be my final post on the Select program. Between the US and the UK I gave away slightly more than 30,000 books over four weekends. So far this month I’ve sold 1083 copies of Key Lime Blues (A Wes Darling Mystery), 468 copies of The Storm Killer, 475 copies of Dog River Blues (A Wes Darling Mystery), and 71 copies of Weep No More. Considering that my normal monthly sales are between 500 and 600 books a month this program has been a great boost to my numbers.

The biggest disappointment has been Weep No More. This book is a stand alone psychological thriller. I have decided to change the cover and am probably going to change the title. Any thoughts out there on MIND DEMONS? Here’s a brief description:

A hedonistic therapist clashes with a dedicated investigator in this psychological thriller about abuse of power and the hidden demons that torment the lives of ordinary people.

Linda Morgan investigates psychotherapists who are having sex with their clients. The job is bizarre, but not particularly dangerous — at least until the day she discovers she’s being stalked. Is it one of the therapists she’s investigating? Her ex-husband? The new boyfriend?

Any feed back from our readers out there would be greatly appreciated.

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.
