My most recent giveaway has just ended and I have been asked to report back and tell you how it went and how I did it.
I applied to BookBub and paid to have my book listed. Probably thanks to Daz Smith and his fantastic design for the Cover I got approved. I also need to thank for the many thoughtful and elaborate reviews that vouched for the book on Goodreads and Amazon and helped the presentation.
I agreed to a change of date to accommodate their publication schedule. I was featured on a Monday and it was perfectly fine.
Thanks to all people on twitter and Facebook and the bloggers, friends and followers who shared the information about the giveaway. I posted in Facebook Groups for Free Books, scheduled tweets and participated in retweeting during those five days.
I had 8000 downloads before BookBub published, so even without it this would have been a massive success. After the BookBub advert I was also in the Midlist, ReadCheaply and SweetFreeBooks.
In Five days I managed
57,290 downloads worldwide
I was #1 in both US and UK Free Family Life downloads and
#3 overall in the US for free downloads.
#5 overall in the UK free download charts.
A fantastic feeling. Thanks again for everyone who helped.
Reviews are now coming in from total strangers, most of which are enjoying the book.
Time To Let Go:
Time to Let Go is a contemporary family drama set in Britain. Following a traumatic incident at work Stewardess Hanna Korhonen decides to take time off work and leaves her home in London to spend quality time with her elderly parents in rural England. There she finds that neither can she run away from her problems, nor does her family provide the easy getaway place that she has hoped for. Her mother suffers from Alzheimer’s disease and, while being confronted with the consequences of her issues at work, she and her entire family are forced to reassess their lives. The book takes a close look at family dynamics and at human nature in a time of a crisis. Their challenges, individual and shared, take the Korhonens on a journey of self-discovery and redemption.
