Remember that promotion that Night Shade set up for Barnes & Noble? The Free ebook download? Well, I just found out how many copies were downloaded.
Wow. I'm stunned. I knew from previous promotions that it was going to be in the tens of thousands, but 77k? I had no idea. That's pretty damn awesome, says I. I'm sure that a bunch of those are never going to read it, and for others, it won't be their cup of tea, but for a new author, it's just great and gratifying to get this into the hands of people that might never have heard of me otherwise. Plus, I've already heard from many readers that they plan to pick up the next novel, so all in all, this was a great and successful promotion.
