if I've ever been normal, I'm back to it. Tired like hell, I was wondering about the worth of KDP-Select free promos. I only noticed AFTER the campaign ended that amazon has changed their algorithm again. Now, the copies I give away for free don't affect the books overall ranking any more, which means I do NOT get more visibility. I'm questioning the wisdom of participating in this kind of promo again. It is very draining on me to sit there +- all day and push the link on twitter and FB. It's an emotional drain (because I hate to post so many links. It feels like spamming). The only hope I have is that enough of the more than 7000 people who downloaded "Scotland's guardians" will read and review the story.
How about you. Do you think it's worth participating in KDP-Select, now that the ranking algorithms have changed? Have you ever put a book through there? Are 7000 copies a lot these days or should it have been more (an indicator if my story-blurb is good enough or not)? Should I do this again with my upcoming release "Paralan's Children"?
