“They Came By Night” – Andrew Bathgate was the best selling Fantasy Novel on Amazon over the weekend.
What a ride these last five days have been. This was the last five days of the vital 28 day post publication period. I had to drive my rank up or be forgotten by the Amazon algorithms forever.
To put this in perspective, all I wanted to break into the top 100 For Epic Fantasy. I never dreamed of #1.
Also to put this in perspective, this was a free promo, and Monday morning it will be paid purchasing only so my rank will tank. There are now thousands of people reading my book, and with any luck they’ll like it and recommend it. It is all word of mouth from here on.
