This is a post I came across written by author Nicholas C. Rossis on how he went about promoting his self-published books on Amazon. I went through a similar process recently with my self-published novels, The Silk Romance and The Antique Love. In both cases I reached 7,000 downloads, pushing the books into number 2 in a competitive category, adding to my sales, increasing the number of 4 and 5-star reviews and gaining new readers for my other books.
Nicholas explains the process in detail. Here’s a copy of his post. I hope you find it useful!

I hope you found his post useful. Do you often download free books? If so, how do you hear about them? Do you often download free books and then never read them?
If you’re a writer, have you ever run a promotion on Amazon, and how did you go about it?
If you have any comments at all, I’d love to hear from you!
