I'm excited to say that on the first day of the free giveaway for "Trinity and the Sad Child" the story was downloaded twelve times. That breaks two personal records, one for most first day free downloads and two the most free downloads in a single day.
When not for sale for free, the digital copies of my books cost $2.99 each. Throughout the free promotions, all three total to date have been downloaded sixty two times. And they have been read in countries all over the world. Amazon Denmark, UK, India, Mexico, Japan, and of course the US.
However, there are zero total downloads for my eBooks. Not a single one of them have had cash sales. The books in print have not fared much better. Six total purchases for print copies. Half of those were purchased by my father.
I know it takes awhile to get discovered by the public. So far there has been no paid advertising, other than this website. Everything else has been "organic" or word of mouth on Twitter or Facebook. My online presence has increased dramatically and particularly on Twitter. Just recently passed 1,000 followers on it.
In news today, I received "proof" copies of "Trinity and the Sad Child" today. Proof means that these are copies that need to be checked for formatting issues, if any. And just the basic feel of the book. I ordered five copies, one for me to edit through. One for my mother because she loves them, and three for some friends. I've got several people who are waiting for a signed copy who are friends of mine and I'm going to deliver them as soon as I possibly can.
"Trinity and the Sad Child" the eBook Kindle edition is available now through Thursday for free. I hope you will read it, and enjoy it. And I hope that if you enjoy it, that you will tell other people about the book. I want you to share it with those you love, and especially children. It's geared for them.
Coming later on this year, I will be publishing the collected works of "Trinity the Troublemaker" which will feature original art, the blogs about the bully at St. Clarkes, and the summation of the events after the final chapter of Peters adventures there will only be available in the collected works.
Meanwhile, enjoy my stories. The free one on Amazon while it lasts, the free blog entries about Peter, or buy the books and invite Trinity into your home. I promise you won't regret it.
