I had a promotion yesterday to coincide with the launch of my short story ebook, Zombies Ate My Muslim, where I gave it away for free.
If you missed out, well... sorry! Keep checking this blog or subscribe my to Twitter feed @tedmahsun to find out when my next promotion will be.
At the end of the day I managed to get 93 downloads on Amazon US and 30 downloads on Amazon UK. The book also wound up on the Top 100 Best Selling Kindle Books for Horror. (EDIT: It's since gone back down to somewhere in the 80,000s.)
So, not bad I guess? 100+ downloads was more than I expected. My aim for making the book free was for exposure and I got that. But I also wanted the people who downloaded it to write reviews on Amazon and so far I've had none. Reviews are important to get people to buy the book as well as visibility of the author.
Perhaps in the coming days?
If you're one of the awesome readers who downloaded Zombies Ate My Muslim and you enjoyed it, please consider leaving a review on Amazon! I would appreciate it very much!
