Update; #LoveLondon price blitz plus a word on #Promo

And now for the wonders of promo/pricing. At this moment, Skating at Somerset House is currently #54 in Short Stories on Kobo, #15 in Amazon Holidays chart (#98 in anthologies at 6.00 a.m. this morning); Valentine’s on Primrose Hill is #59 in Short Stories on Kobo and Strawberries at Wimbledon is at #79 in Amazon Holidays chart. I’m definitely starting today very happy 🙂

I’m not boasting. I honestly don’t feel I can take much credit for the chart positions. While I did quite a lot of promo from Thursday 5th February onwards for the release of Valentine’s on Primrose Hill, and took part in the Romance Festival last weekend, I’m not sure how or if any of that contributed. I actually think chart positions are down to an odd mixture of algorithms, pricing strategies, buying patterns, publisher/marketing action and a massive dose of luck. But I AM very grateful for every sale and to every reader who has catapulted some of the stories into the charts.The main reason for sharing the chart positions (apart from being able to take a tiny moment to smile about it) is actually to say that if it can happen to me, it can happen to anyone. So if you are an author, aspiring or otherwise, and are intimidated about other people’s perceived successes or experiences and you’re thinking, why bother, please keep going. Follow your dream; there’s room for everyone 🙂

Happy reading and writing,

Love, Nikki x
