Thanks for this thread. Now I don't feel so bad with my 2 sales and 1 borrow before doing a countdown / free promo. I just want to say that it really sucks that we have to use our own livelihood (books) as the guinea pigs as we figure all this out. /rant ;-) And that Amazon, for all it's talk of being self-pub friendly with the 70% royalties, doesn't do a lot for you when it's so dang hard to get any kind of visibility. Okay, now my rant is over!

They (Amazon) don't do a lot for you ... other than let you use their worldwide distribution system for a measly 30% and no upfront cost, LOL!

But seriously, more promotion would be nice, but even the big publishers don't do as much of that anymore. I'm trying this out for my second book, Empire of Fire, so I'll let y'all know how it turns out.
