Over 1700 people entered the Goodreads.com giveaway for The Last Observer and more than 700 have added it. Wouldn’t it be nice if 10% of those actually purchased the book? The two lucky winners were sent their copies today. One in the UK and one in the USA.
Is it selling? I’m not sure. Lots of people tell me they have it or they plan to get it but the Amazon site suggests they aren’t buying it there as its not very highly ranked and few copies appear to have sold there. I guess I will see more end of next month when the publisher sends a report. It should sell. The reviews are all good to great. Its not over priced. I am just not sure how to get beyond family and friends.
I guess it needs family and friends to pass it on to their family and friends. If this happened several times, it might take off. But I don’t know if I have any influence at all on this except to ask people to be kind and recommend it to their family and friends.
The Kindle version is now available for pre-order which may help too. Take a look.
