The Before the Storm free promotion is now over – thank you SO MUCH to everyone who downloaded a copy! I was completely amazed by the response and it’s a bit overwhelming to think that it ended up on almost THREE THOUSAND kindles over the course of the last couple of days. Crikey. But then I think about the fact that my books have been downloaded over eight thousand times now and start to feel really feeble and a tad hysterical because that’s a bit terrifying. I mean that’s THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE reading WORDS that come from MY HEAD. And that’s before I even get started on the thousands of you (hello!) reading this. I think I’m going to go and lie down and listen to The Kidneythieves on repeat now.
Hey, you can too.
I failed to keep a proper eye on rankings and stuff but as far as I know it peaked at #32 on the Kindle Free Book Chart and was #1 Free Family Saga and #1 Free Historical Fiction for much of the promotion, which was excellent. It doesn’t matter that it was free – it’s just nice to be an er bestnonseller for a bit. Bestfreeseller? Anyway, it was great.
Thanks again to everyone who downloaded a copy. Please leave a review, however short, on Amazon or Goodreads or wherever you like as then maybe more people will buy it and I can retire to Paris and live in a house constructed from empty Louboutin boxes.
As a reward for all your l33t downloading skills, here’s a photograph of me aged about eight at Hever Castle. Note the VERY becoming pink dress + red hair combination and the peculiarly awkward way that I’m holding my guide book. Also SOCKS + sandals.
I don’t look like that any more – I look like this:
Cor, I know, right?! Who wouldn’t?
If you missed the promotion, fear not! for Before the Storm is back to its usual price of a princely £1.93 in the UK and about the same in the US, except Amazon won’t let me see how much it is exactly.
