If you’re Indie-pubbing, be ready to answer the 15 questions below. Recently, I Indie-pubbed a second short romance in the Promises Collection. To get your copy, click here. By doing my own promotion, I must have filled out twenty different questionnaires in addition to my blog-hop posts. Yes, there were repetitive questions and answers, but some unique that required thought. After all, I wanted to reach as many readers as I could during the 4-day Amazon Free period.
Over that period, 7,000 copies were downloaded. Downloads came from all Amazon countries offered. A Promise Worth Remembering hit #3 in Anthologies and #6 in New Adult Romance free Kindle. And the bestseller’s rank for free Kindle hit #47. The story continues to receive 5 star reviews. ;D
To help with my next release, I created a document that contains answers to each and every question. And thank goodness. I released on a Tuesday and was contacted by four promo sites that wanted to do a full-page feature (Freebooksy, Freebookdude, It’s Write Now, and Free Books Daily) that very day.
And Free Books Daily also asked for an author interview, my First! But ten minutes before I needed to leave for my day job, read here. I went into a little panic mode. What would I say? I wasn’t quite prepared. Now I will be. With the information I need at my fingertips, next time I’ll be release-day ready and you can be prepared, too.
