Amazon Giveaway... did it work?

I've tried it before without much luck, but I decided to try again.

This time I did all three books of my 'Arlo and Jake' Scifi series, one after the other. I ran 25 copies of each book, each over a week giveaway.

On the plus side, all three giveaways only lasted a couple of days before the books were gone! At least I got some immediate positive response.

Each book climbed above the 1000 'Best Sellers Mark' rating. And they stayed there for about a week! Then, back down the slide. Bummer.

So far there has not been a continued interest in those books. I'm hoping that some of the winners will leave a review and bring my books back into the light.

My giveaways were fairly small, I hesitate to invest hundreds of dollars in something that may not give me any return. But maybe that's my problem? Maybe if I do a 200/300 giveaway, they will climb above the 50 mark and move into the lime light, even for a while? I just don't know.

If you've had experience with this, please drop a comment.

Oh my. The boys just can't catch a break...

This is so much fun! 

The boys are sinking deeper and deeper into the Galactic goo. I'd say they're about waist high right now. I wonder how they'll get out of this one??

“Well. That seals that deal, Arlo. We’re committed now. We’ve got another problem to think about. How do we free Kasha? Crow has her on a short collar. We could get her killed trying to free her. Hell, we could get ourselves killed if anyone finds out we’re trying to free her.”

 Arlo snickers and says, “So let me recap, buddy. We have to sit back and watch a convoy of innocent traders and their FTG escort get destroyed, and we don’t know why. We have to stay alive during the fight. We have to find a way to free Starla’s sister from a bloodthirsty maniac. We have to contact Triumph again and try to set up another trap and then get away, with Kasha, before the FTG destroys the mercs. Is that about it?”

 “Well. Yes. That about sums it up. What? Is there some problem, buddy?”

Book #3 Give Away this weekend!

I'm setting up the last Amazon Book Give Away for this weekend. It will feature Book # 3 'Arlo and Jake Lost Partner'.

The response to the Give Away for 'Arlo and Jake Enlist' and 'Arlo and Jake Galactic Boot Camp' has been great! Thanks so much to my reading and writing friends and new followers!

If you missed it, you can still get Book 1 and 2 on Amazon or Barnes And Noble, just follow the links on the main blog page.

Book #4 is reaching it's final act, going boldly where no lizard has gone before! I think you'll really enjoy this latest adventure. New species, new bad guys and a huge twist for my heroes. Jake really doesn't enjoy his body morph.

Have a great day, everyone!

Arlo says, "Be Cool. Be Happy. Just Be!"
