Five Day Freebie is Over - The Results Are In!


Hey everybody!

Well it's been a pretty crazy week for me. I never anticipated how well my book would do for its first week. Even though it was on for free, I still never expected to get more than 100 sales - I thought they would all be friends and family and that would be it. I was so wrong.



Abyssal Sanctuary: Remnants of the Damned's first week on sale sold a grand total of 5,025 units worldwide. That's insane! Especially since 95% of the sales were from the United States of America! I don't know that many people let alone in America. It is so humbling to know over 5,000 people bought the book in support of me. I hope they enjoy the book.

So prices have returned to normal now, and they're still cheap, but I don't expect to sell as much as I did during the book's first freebie week. The next five day free giveaway is currently scheduled for January 2014 as I can only put the book up for free every 90 days.

I documented how well the book performed in each country and where they peaked in the charts on Amazon worldwide. Here are the results. I still can't believe the book hit #1 for Dark Fantasy in America, #6 for all Fantasy, and #85 in the Top 100 Free Kindle books of any genre. I can't wait for the next freebie week to see just how well it could do again.

A huge thank you to absolutely everybody who downloaded the book from Amazon and helped me hit top ten in Canada, Denmark, Japan and the United States, and top twenty in France and the United Kingdom. It's pretty crazy that I got #6 in Japan - I love Japan and its culture and everything about Japan so I feel blown away it did so well there.

I hope you all have a great day, and if you haven't already, grab your e-book of Abyssal Sanctuary: Remnants of the Damned on Amazon worldwide for the Kindle.
