The adrenaline has run out, there are no more tweets left to schedule, and the final numbers are in. The three-day free download promotion for Julianne wrapped up at 12:00 am pacific time last night, and I am left without words. My publicist, Onisha, and I are sitting in our pjs too tired to move, but the glow of accomplishment still shines in our eyes. We reached out to 60 websites and blogs, sent thousands of tweets, and spent days praying Julianne would get picked up by those outlets that don’t accept submissions.
Onisha’s prayers were answered when Inspired Reads chose to include Julianne as one of the three free books they promoted on Wednesday, September 5. Mine was answered when Indies Unlimited included it on their Freebie Friday list. I was overwhelmed by the support of the indie author community over the past three days. Indie Author News and Indie House Books were prolific with their tweets of the promotion. I want to thank them and everyone else who tweeted, posted on Facebook, or included Julianne on their blog, but most of all I want to thank God.
