The experiment of making the Kindle edition of my book I Was A Teenage Toyah Fan available free for 24 hours under Amazon’s KDP Select scheme was an interesting one and seems to have been a success in its own way - in 24 hours it was downloaded just shy of 700 times and peaked at number 50 in the Kindle chart.
Whether this translates into a greater visibility of the book in the long run is another matter (I would hope so) but even if it doesn’t one thing I can say is that hundreds more people will have read my book than before. And that, after all, is what it is all about.
Thanks to everyone on Twitter who joined in and helped plug my promo. They all deserve a special #ff. Please follow the following marvellous individuals:
And of course @toyahofficial herself without whom there would be no book.
Of course if you missed the promo the book is still available now for the princely sum of £1.96 at http://j.mp/TTFkazUK - although the first chapter is still available gratis so you can try before you buy…
