Collective Success–Bestseller for a Day
Indie authors are in a unique position. We are able to control so many aspects of our product from the content of the book, to the cover art to our brand.
The downside to being indie?
We have to go out into the wilds and make a name for ourselves.
After about 6 months of really working social media, I realized that I, by my lonesome, was not going to be able to sell the number of books that I wanted to. I looked around and saw the vast majority of people selling books consistently were authors that had banded together somehow to multiply their marketing efforts.
With my traditional publishing background, I saw that these groups were thinking smaller than I was. I didn’t just want to sell books, I wanted to challenge NY bestsellers.
On Valentine’s Day we supported Amber Scott’s “Play Fling” driving it up into the low thousands on Kindle.
Today we are supporting my controversial historical thriller “30 Pieces of Silver.”
It already has broken the 1,000 barrier and dipped into the low hundreds on Kindle’s overall bestseller lists (simply a by product of prepping for Bestseller for a Day).
We as a collective have a fantastic opportunity today to help drive an indie title into the hyper-competitive Top 100 Paid Kindle Titles.
This is our chance to show NY that indies have got what it takes to compete!
So I ask you today to invest 99 cents into YOUR career by purchasing “30 Pieces of Silver.”
Will your purchase help me too? Of course, but in a collective, anyone’s success is everyone’s success.
The more NY and the press start to look at the indie pool as untapped talent, the better it is for all of us!
