The result has been a big bump in the book's rank. At the time of this post it holds the #39 position for all of fantasy in Amazon.com's Kindle Store, and #16 in Children's eBooks - Sci Fi, Fantasy and Magic! I've seen similar results on Amazon U.K.
With the surge, paid sales are way up and I can't wait to see what happens once the people who downloaded a free copy tell their friends how much they liked the book. And they will; of that I'm confident. The one cardinal rule that I made sure I followed before I published was to write a good book. And although I'm not where I want to be yet, I might be moving in that direction. Time will tell.
If you're someone who downloaded the book, I'd love to hear from you with a comment or review.
