The Numbers: Halloween Promo Breakdown! Also, Author Projects and MECHANICALS
This was our biggest free Kindle book promotion yet and we’ve only just now sat down to tally the results. Over the course of five days, from October 28 through to Thursday November 1, we gave away four of our current titles, to a dollar amount of $1900. Gah. It’s enough to give a body the vapours. Here’s the breakdown, homies…
Soft From All The Blood by S R Jones — 249 copies
Green Fever Dream (Book 2 BLACKSTONE Erotica) by Justine G — 242 copies
Summonings: Anicka and Kamil (a BLACKSTONE Erotica short) by Justine G — 287 copies
R’lyeh Sutra by skawt chonzz — 157 copies
Perhaps obviously, the most downloads went to MMP erotica titles, and, perhaps even more obviously, Justine’s short Summonings: Anicka and Kamil did better business than her longer form smutty novella Green Fever Dream.We think the difference between the two books comes down to the cover graphics: plenty of bare skin and nice lingerie on the Summonings cover v. full latex kink scuba gear on Green Fever Dream. That, and length. It’s always about the length. Yeah, yeah. Jokers. Well, thanks to our graphic design department for at least staying somewhat faithful to the contents of each book. The BLACKSTONE characters need those goddamn scuba masks at the end!
As always, if you’ve downloaded and have enjoyed or are currently enjoying any of the above titles, won’t you please pop on by the Amazon page for said titles, click on the Like button (won’t take a second!) and leave a review? Reviews may take a few more seconds, possibly even a minute or five. Such small temporal sacrifices are greatly appreciated!
In other news, as we slowly ooze on into December expect a little less activity from our authors as they devote their collective hours to new projects. Jones is in the early stages of his non-fiction When The Stars Are Right: Towards An Authentic R’lyehian Spirituality, as well as pumping out short stories for MMP and (gasp!) other publishers, while Justine is working on two new BLACKSTONE shorts, the third book in the BLACKSTONE series, Yellow Sign Bound, and a stand alone sci-fi/horror erotica short tentatively titled ORGY IN THE VALLEY OF THE LUST LARVAE! There’s even skitterings from skawt recently regarding the release of another dark poetry chapbook…
Finally, we’d like to mention that long-time friend of the show and kick-ass author/holy man Jordan Stratford has a new steampunk book out: MECHANICALS. Folks, we here at MMP were treated to the ARC of Mechanicals months back and we can conclusively state that this? This is an amazing, full-tilt read with engaging characters and an aromatic plot. Right now it’s at the introductory price of $2.99 but that’s only for the next three weeks, we’re told, so if you’re hankering for some para-historical derring-do, now’s the time to hit up Stratford for Mechanicals!
