Woohoo! I feel like I won the lottery.
Bookbub is a curated newsletter of free and discounted books separated by genre. It is one of the most powerful selling tools for a writer. However, since it is curated, sometimes it is hard to get a slot.
I applied today and said I would take any date. They came right back with an approval! For April 21st!
I'm doing the Happy Dance all over the house.
This comes at a really good time for me. I'm still working on the book I started months ago, and I was feeling bad about how long this is taking. New releases are important for sales. I was pressuring myself to do some more aggressive marketing. And ugh...I was stressing myself out.
At the same time, sales for Lethal Seasons have coasted downhill. It's still selling, with the occasional spike for no apparent reason, but the general direction is down. It needed a good shove back into the limelight.
And I got it!
Excuse me while I take my Happy Dance out into the yard.
