Promo Crazy

Blimey O'Reilly. What a month.While I've been busy holing myself away in remote Welsh locations, trying to type up the 36K words I've written for Big Bad Wolf (and researching like crazy on cultures which are totally alien to my way of thinking), those World Wise Writer ladies have been giving it large. Go Girls!!!

JD Faulkner had an awesome promotion for her New Adult Fantasy MIRRORED TIME (Time Archivist #1) which reached #3 overall in the Free in Kindle Store.
New jobs aren't supposed to be this hard. Crazy half-gods, time travelers and ex-gladiator thieves? Unemployment never looked so good.

Then Hannah Sullivan's awesome THUNDER: The Shadows are Stirring was free, reaching #1 in Children's Sword & Sorcery Fantasy Books.
A rift between the layers of the world. A talking horse. Evil Sliders. What's a girl to do when she's the only one who can save it all?

Andrea Domanski's promo for her New Adult Fantasy CROSSFIRE (Omega #1) was spectacular, with people downloading 29.9 thousand books, resulting in 2 #1 Bestsellers in the paid charts.
Once a normal teenage girl, now an Amazon warrior. Add in a bunch of kick-ass preternaturals and one maniacal demi-god and what have you got? The worst birthday ever!

Jacky Gray re-released the 3rd Hengist Book REAGAN (in a new cover), for free. For 10 minutes around lunchtime, 65 copies of this Young Adult Fantasy were being downloaded every minute - that's more than one per second. The average for 16 hours of the first day was 22 per minute.
Reagan must decode the mysteries of white horses, crop circles and ley lines to save his people. No pressure, then.
