'Stoke The Flames Higher' - progress report
Thank you very much to all of you who bought, or borrowed (through Kindle Unlimited), my new novel, 'Stoke The Flames Higher'.
Within 24 hours of launch, it had reached the top 10 in Amazon's 'Hot New Releases' lists for both military science fiction and space opera. It's slipped a little since then, but it's still on the front page of both lists, which is great. That helps new readers to find it more easily. Its highest sales rank so far has been 1,019 in the Kindle Store, which is also excellent. (That rank fluctuates from day to day, even from hour to hour, so don't pay too much attention to a 'snapshot' number.) The book's received 14 reviews at the time of writing, 13 5-star and 1 4-star. Thank you so much to everyone who's reviewed it!
If you have a blog, or (a) social media account(s), I'd be very grateful if you'd please spread the word about the new book's availability. Independent authors like myself depend almost entirely on word of mouth to publicize their books. I couldn't do this without all of you!
I'm going to be preparing a 'lessons learned' post about this book launch, since it has some unique features. Look for it at Mad Genius Club this Friday. I'll post a link to it once it's up.
