Hey everyone! I’ve scheduled about two weeks of ads, and thought I’d share the results with you as they come in. The promo book is a permafree first in series—rockstar romance Diving Into Him (South of Forever, Book 1), if you’re interested. My goal is to create sellthrough for the other two books in the series and build my email list in prep for the fourth and final book.

I didn’t advertise over Labor Day weekend, because I’ve learned from past attempts that holiday weekends are no bueno.

I also did an interview with these guys.

I chose not to advertise over this weekend, either, since I had a limited budget and wanted to focus on weekdays; the weather is still good and I think a lot of people are still going outdoors on weekends.
