Germany calling

I am very appreciative of my first international book review. The review was 4 out of 5 stars. The big complaint was getting lost or confused during the constant jumps through time. That was a great review because the internet was exactly that. I didn't want the reader to be sure when was the present. It just exemplifies the Sankofa concept and the whole story is circular. It is mean to be one of those works that you enjoy the first time but you catch more and more that you missed every time you read it :) Thanks again!!!

Four days of FREE promotion ...

I've sold 5,202 novels in 4 days in 3 countries. Granted that was free on Kindle, but I think that is pretty freaking good with absolutely no promotion. I look at it as free self-promotion. I'm pretty excited about it.

Kindle exclusive pilot program

"Sankofa" = Wyatt Bryson They are running a pilot program where you can offer the novels for free for 5 days every 3 months (Kindle exclusive digitally). It is like a free promotions thing because you make some royalties if the books are lended through their lending program. i put both novel's up for a free 1 day (today). "Onyx and Eggshell" sold about 150 copies today. "Sankofa" has sold over 1,000 today. No money for me of course, but it could be a foundation for good things to come. Amazon Best Sellers Rank: #154 Free in Kindle Store #2 in Kindle Store > Kindle eBooks > Nonfiction > Advice & How-to > Parenting & Families #9 in Kindle Store > Kindle eBooks > Nonfiction > Lifestyle & Home No money in my pockets but I'm still really really excited about this. The next free day is Christmas day. :) Wyatt Bryson

Kindle exclusive

Amazon is running a pilot program where digital copies have to be exclusive to them to take advantage of some of the marketing tools. Since the lion's share of my novels sell through Kindle already, I'm experiment with the Kindle exclusive program. The print versions are still available all over the web at most online book sellers.

a telling facebook chat message to a friend

copying and pasting late night drunk text messages into one's blog might not necessarily be the smartest thing to do. just saying.
