Up until May 28th I've been offering the Queen of Lies eBook for FREE on the Kindle Market. (If you haven't picked up a copy, there's no better time-- every download boosts my seller ranking).
I'm pleased to say the result first marketing campaign has been a huge success in getting visibility for my work. With a little publicity, I made it to #4 in epic fantasy. I also made the #2 spot in LGBT Fantasy, beating out a ton of MM romance and werewolf erotica.
How hard is it to make the top 10 lists with a free promotion? Harder than you'd think. There thousands of promos running daily in addition to free books established authors use as funnels into their series. Making it tot the Top 10 means that my cover and description are solid enough to merit interest.
This has been and continues to be an ongoing process of learning and discovery.
