Two weeks ago, I suggested in my wrap-up post for 2020 marketing goals that I hadn’t yet reached my goal for sales/giveaways of my books in 2020. I just wanted to run one giveaway through KDP Select to close out the year.

After a modest performance the first day and a half, my KDP Select giveaway picked up some steam and lifted me well beyond my original goal. Here’s how it went. Continue reading “How KDP Select Helped My Book Promotion”

Free on Kindle – The Warden of Everfeld: Memento

Well, I mentioned in last week’s post that I wanted to make a final push on selling/giving away copies of my novel, The Warden of Everfeld: Memento

My fantasy novel is now available for free on Kindle until midnight on December 20 PT. This is 200,000+ words of engaging characters, adventure, world building, and that touch of magical realism that I think we all could use to close out 2020.

Want to read a full synopsis or some character bios for Aston and Jaed? Check out my summary page for The Warden of Everfeld: Memento here.

Here’s the link to the Amazon page: https://www.amazon.com/Warden-Everfeld-Memento-Steven-DAdamo-ebook/dp/B07FGG23K7/

Tell your friends, tell your family, “buy” my book as a gift, or just because we all need to pad our TBR lists.

Behind the Scenes

I decided to enroll my novel in KDP Select, which means I can run a 5-day giveaway. (I will definitely be sharing the results of this giveaway after the fact.) This is my first time running a giveaway promotion like this, so I’m really excited and maybe a little bit nervous.

My goal from earlier in the year for total book sales/giveaways for 2020 was 30. I have sold just 1 copy so far, so I basically need this giveaway to carry my goal for the entire year 😀 No pressure.

Side note: today we hit 700 followers on this blog. Completely unrelated to my giveaway, but still awesome. Thanks guys.
