Good morning everyone!
Today I wanted to let you know that Visions of Zarua is just 99p during its Kindle Countdown Deal 20th – 27th July. Here’s the link if you’re interested in learning more – Amazon UK / US.
Visions of Zarua is a dual timeline fantasy following the story of two wizards who live 350 years apart.
Paddren is the reluctant hero of present day Paltria, while Jago is a junior wizard who lived 350 years ago when the problems first beset the magical city of Zarua.
Steeped in mystery, with plenty of magic and murder along the way, this is a fast-paced action adventure on an epic scale.
Visions of Zarua is a standalone fantasy with 18 reviews and an average rating of 4.5 on Amazon UK. On Goodreads it has 26 ratings with an average of 4.27.
I’m excited about the countdown deal this time around as this will be the first time I’ve used any paid Ad services apart from AMS to promote it.
For those Indie authors out there interested in using Ad sites, I’ll blog about the results in the near future. I don’t have high expectations of making my money back, I’m just hoping for a few downloads and some more exposure of both Visions and The Lost Sentinel.
LEARNT SO FAR: You can’t just set up this kind of advertising on a whim, which of course is exactly what I tried to do. Some sites need you to book a date weeks or even months in advance, and many require a certain number of reviews as well. That’s a great form of quality control, but doesn’t help when you want to promote a newly published book. My advice – get organised in advance!
I have my fingers crossed this next week of promos sees a few sales. I’ll leave you with a couple of quotes about Visions of Zarua from Amazon.
