As of 2:52 pm Dry Land is at #6 free in Hard Sci Fi. Broke the top 2000 free books. 122 units downloaded. Other than posting like hell on Facebook on my own and using Slack Social and Postcron, and posting to Twitter, these are the sites to which I submitted listings for the free promotion of Dry Land.
ETA: When the free promo closed down, there were 309 units downloaded. Ranking was in the top 1000 free and #2 in hard sci fi-free. Shortly thereafter, three paid sales.
I write this post with the thought that my results may or may not be typical and may be useful to others in deciding whether to list with a book site. 🙂 Hope this helps!
And the results:
http://manybooks.net – emailed me that they didn’t have room for me today. Boo.
http://www.indiebookoftheday.com – didn’t post my book even though I got confirmation that my submission went through. Oh well.
http://www.readingdeals.com – didn’t see book listed. C’est la vie.
http://www.bettybookfreak.com – said no as I had already had a promo with them in Feb. That’s fair.
http://www.ebookstage.com – promoted my book as its “Book of the Day.” Biggest bonus of the day for me RIGHT HERE. Bless them.
http://www.ebooklister.net – promoted my book
http://www.digitalbooktoday.com – listed my book
http://www.ebookstamp.com – site was down
http://www.ebookasaurus.com – promoted my book
http://www.book-circle.com – promoted my book
http://www.readcheaply.com – couldn’t list my book as I already had a promo with them in February. Again, that’s fair.
