Help Whale Song get into top 100 kindle bestsellers and be entered to win a Kindle Touch 3G

Want to win a Kindle Touch 3G? If so, keep reading. :-)

As part of my KDP Select Experiment, which will officially be over on February 20th (it'll be 1 month), I enrolled my bestselling novel WHALE SONG and saw over 20,000 free downloads in one day of free promo.

After the free promo was over, I saw a huge surge in sales, plummeting WHALE SONG into the top 300 bestselling kindle ebooks, then the top 200, and now it sits at #146--of ALL kindle ebooks sold on Amazon.

It is outselling works by James Patterson, Diana Gabaldon, Amanda Hocking, John Locke, J.A. Konrath, Lee Goldberg and many other well-known authors.

I am so close to seeing WHALE SONG int the Top 100, a prestigious spot to be in, and so today I'm asking for your help--and I'm willing to put a prize up for grabs to thanks you.

This is how it works:

1. You can earn up to 5 entries in this draw.
2. Tweet one of my messages found on the form via the Read more link below.
3. Tweeting has 2 parts: First click the Tweet button at top right of form (after you've signed in) and send tweet. Then follow the instructions to find the url and copy and paste it into the box, then Enter. Done!

Help WHALE SONG get into the Top 100 overall bestselling Kindles and I'll give away this Kindle Touch 3G. The following form works best with IE browser.

To everyone that helps me spread the word about WHALE SONG, thank you! I sincerely appreciate your support. And good luck to everyone in my Kindle Touch 3G draw! :-)

Because some people had problems with this form I've included everyone who RTd or tweeted/FB about WHALE SONG.

By the way, I made the Top 100! WHALE SONG is now at #76. :-)

Thank you for the enlightening experiment and congratulations on all the success, Cheryl!
Any idea how those 20,000 people found Whale Song in one day of free promo?
Was it because you already have a sweet fan base or did you place ads ahead of time? Maybe a deal w/the devil??? I know that one worked out well for Charlie Daniels;)

Hi Sean,

You're very welcome, and thank you.

Amazon has a page for free Kindles and I think many people go there daily to see what's available. Other than people finding Whale Song there, they could have read my tweets, seen others who RTd my tweets or read my FB status and my blog post. Other than that, I did nothing else to promote it.

I have a small fan base but from the reviews that are coming in these are people who found me on Twitter or Amazon.

I placed no ads anywhere. I didn't pay a cent to advertise. No press release either.

No deal with the devil. I made that once a few years ago and only got burned. LOL

Wow, that is awesome! I am making my ghost story free this Wed & Thur and was wondering if people would even be able to find it on that page for free Kindles. There is a lot of noise out there and it can be hard to be heard, but sounds like it worked great for you! Can't wait to see what happens...
Thank you for the response!

Cheryl Tardif said...

Good luck with your free promos, Sean. Send me a tweet and I'll Rt it for you.

That is so nice!
Thank you
