About a month ago, I did a free giveaway weekend for Imminent Danger. For that giveaway, I went all out, leveraging all my social media sites to promote the free giveaway as much as possible. The grand total was 2800+ downloads.
Last Sunday, I did a 1-day stealth giveaway. No social media mentions, no promoting the book anywhere. I didn’t even tell my own mother about it. The grand total was 118 downloads.
What does this tell us?
- Telling people about your giveaway is a good idea (duh)
- Two day giveaways are (probably) better than one day
- People will still stumble across and download your book by random chance
That’s pretty much all I’ve got to report. Stay warm, everyone!

As you may know, I recently went on vacation with my mother and brother, and I thought I’d share a couple of pictures. View and enjoy!
