Another KDP Select Success Story!

Everywhere I turn at the moment, I seem to be reading about authors who have enrolled their titles in Amazon's new program, KDP Select, and have gone from selling a handful of titles per month to hundreds overnight.

I'm thrilled to say that I can now join these authors!

Last week I put my romance novel, Escape, into the program and set it to go free for five days. During these five days, I gave out over 33,000 copies of the book. It sat at the #2 spot for the whole of the free kindle store on for the majority of this time and got to #11 on I'd done 'free days' on a couple of other titles and never saw anything like these numbers, so I was pretty excited to say the least!

After the five days, the title switched back to paid again, and guess what? The sales kept coming. On the first day, I sold 250 copies, the day after 120, the day after that, 150 (these numbers include 'borrows'). At this rate, I'm going to make what I normally make in a month in the space of a few days.

I don't know how long it's going to last, but I'm sure as hell going to enjoy it while it does!


  1. Way to go, my friend! As you know, Angelic Knight Press is going this way now as well.
