#BookBub Featured Deal – final analysis

I fully admit to having had my heart in my mouth when I hit ‘send’ on the payment for this deal. It was a LOT of money, $704, to be precise. I also admit that despite applying for a Featured Deal several times a year for several years, I still dithered about accepting it when […]

My BookBub Featured Deal went live across the world yesterday. It’s always a little tricky following the numbers really closely, courtesy of the time differences.

#Amazon amalgamates US & UK reviews?

This week, while checking something on my Amazon UK book page for THE PRINCE’S MAN, I got a shock. Instead of the 49 reviews it’s had for some time now, suddenly it was showing 77! I know it’s selling steadily, but that’s a lot of new reviews all of a sudden, and I was eager […]
