Just poppin' in to let you all know I have a freebie for two days. It's the last one before I ditch Select, I think.

I hope the promo treats you well Traci, and that it catapults the other two Mitzy titles into the stratosphere in terms of sales!

What would have to happen to convince you to stick with KDP Select for another 90 days (I'm not saying that because I think you should or shouldn't stay on KDP Select, I am just intrigued to see what your tipping point might be)

hmmmm...If this promo gives away more than 10,000 (I know at least 5 writers who have achieved that) and spikes full priced sales of the other two books (rather than 99 cent sales) into a rank of 6,000 or higher I would be willing to put Foreclosed back in this month.

My loans were far fewer this month than in December, so I want to put at least Eminent Domain and Buyer's Remorse back into BN (I can on the 11th and 25th of this month) and see if they can make more money there than they did as loaned copies.

Foreclosed has a really low star ranking at BN which I think contributes to it, and the series, not selling well there, so I would be interested in putting just those two up at BN and keeping Foreclosed select...

However, putting the second in the series up as a freebie has been a good way to get sales on Foreclosed for me...so I could go that way too...but basically this promo would have to do ten times as well as the others have.

I plan to reenroll in the summer but I want to get some Barnes and Noble action between now and then. : )

That all makes a heck of a lot of sense.

I am annoyed that Foreclosed has a low star ranking on BN, would me writing my review for the book on there help push it up? I'd be more than happy to do so.

It would. : ) I copy and pasted your Amazon review and posted it as an "Editorial Review" on the sales page. But if you wanted to review it for Nook I'd be happy to take it down. Right now it's still unpublished at BN so there's no place to post a review, but I'll let you know if I republish it there. : )

Please let me know if and when you republish it there and I will then post the review right away :)

Also, let us know how the promo goes. I have my fingers crossed that it hits the 10k mark!

So I hit 595 in the freebies but the pace of the giveaway needs to increase dramatically if I want to give away even close to 10k. At this pace I may give away about 3000.

If anyone wants their own free copy, here's the link: http://www.amazon.com/Foreclosed-Mitzy-Neuhaus-Mysteries-ebook/dp/B003ZDP194/ref=zg_bs_157315011_3

Just realized I brought my Kindle back to my home city this week so will be able to start on it tonight. I've read a lot of posts from you in this forum over the past weeks and am intrigued to dive into your book!
I'll try to put aside my guilty feelings, per your suggestion, on getting it for free :)

I made it to #185 free...didn't take as many give-aways as I thought it would. However, I don't think I've got the momentum to crack that top 100...

Just to say WHERE THE BULBUL SINGS is free to download from the Kindle store on Tuesday 6 March. Do have a read and I'd appreciate a review. All the best to fellow indies.
