War of Nytefall Sale: Looking Back on The Event

This basically sums it up.  For those who didn’t know or forgot:

I had all 3 War of Nytefall books priced at 99 cents each for the month of October. I mentioned it a few times on my blog, left a pinned tweet about it, and a few people mentioned it on their blogs.  This netted me . . .  10 sales total.  Needless to say, I put the price back up to $2.99 and will NOT be dropping any Legends of Windemere books to that price. First one there is free, so that’s it.

Now, I will admit that I didn’t do a lot of promoting, but I never intended to do so.  A big reason is because I don’t have thousands of dollars to spend in the hopes of getting maybe one hundred bucks.  That may have hurt me, but then it would have also raised the bar much higher.  I couldn’t promote the sale every day on my blog either because I wanted to do other things and it would eventually be static after a week or two.  So, that’s really the end of that.

I swear, there was some story that I was going to share today.  I mentioned it in passing in a comment last weekend or the week before.  Remind me and I’ll post it for next Sunday.  I think I’ll keep this short since I had to change the clocks and lose an hour of sleep.  Maybe things will improve when/if I release War of Nytefall: Eradication.

About Charles Yallowitz

Charles E. Yallowitz was born, raised, and educated in New York. Then he spent a few years in Florida, realized his fear of alligators, and moved back to the Empire State. When he isn't working hard on his epic fantasy stories, Charles can be found cooking or going on whatever adventure his son has planned for the day. 'Legends of Windemere' is his first series, but it certainly won't be his last.

  1. Three of those sales were me in UK, Charles, but I’ll not be reading them untilI finish your Windemere series (I’m currently on book 3 Lure of the Gypsy)

  2. I share your pain on price promotions. They never seem to work well. I wonder about Windemere and Nytefall too. That describes me.

  3. I don’t think there is much left that works. Paid promo seems to want any profit you might get and more. At least you moved a few you might not have otherwise. I was thinking about you and you’re 2020 ideas. How about magic items? You’re so good at monsters it might be fun.

  4. It’s frustrating, isn’t it? You never know what’s going to work, and when a sales tactic seems to work, you repeat it and nothing happens.

    Sigh…
