Thought I’d give a quick update on what’s been going on with The Heist.
Sales have kicked off well since its launch in September and the book has been downloaded over 1000 times. So an enormous than you to everyone who has been kind enough to show any interest in my work, quite frankly. And a polite but firm handshake to all those who have dug into their wallets and paid for the book too. The firm handshake – as opposed to a hug – is due to my Britishness and I don’t know any reader well enough to high-five them.
I’ve also been kicking off some online marketing activities. September and some October has involved Instafreebie promotions. During this time, I’ve gone wide (selling outside the Amazon Kindle platform) but despite being asked to do this by potential readers, I have only generated sales on the Kindle. So, I’ve decided to restrict my attention to Amazon. This means I’m about to start an advertising campaign which will last several months.
Finally, I’d like to say I’m still writing the sequel. Two weeks ago I managed to close off a writer’s block for The Getaway and get back into proper writing mode. Unless more goes wrong I can’t predict, it should be available before the end of the year and hopefully early December. But I make no promises.
