Last Sunday was another sponsorship at Kindle Nation Daily. I think it cost $59. The surprise was I did those sales at $2.99, so the sponsorship didn’t break even but it did pretty well. So the answer is, yes, people will spend $2.99 on a novella.

The other pleasant surprise was Saturday, when someone bought 10 copies of the paperback to give as gifts, I’m guessing. (It may have been more than one buyer, but I doubt it.)

The book is now free over at iTunes and Barnes and Noble, which its rank climbed steadily this week over at BN. It’s now at #2590, which I’m guessing is 10 to15 downloads a day. (I don’t have real-time numbers for BN.) I’m still trying to get Amazon make the book free for a limited time as a sales-boosting technique. If you want to help, the directions are in this post.
