Kindle Scout Results

Well, it's all over, and I finally heard back with a rejection from Kindle Press. I don't know what criteria they ultimately use to decide on which books to publish and which to reject. But I do feel that I ran a great campaign and did everything I could to make it as successful as possible. I don't regret turning down the publishing contracts to take a shot with Kindle Scout, and I would make the same decision again.

I have to say that I'm rather proud of the stats Bitter Envy achieved. Also Kindle Scout will notify everyone who nominated it when it is published in a few weeks. I can see why some authors use Kindle Scout as part of their book release marketing.

So without further ado-- hours in Hot & Trending-- which are the top 20 books as formulated by some unknown Amazon algorithm:

673 out of 720 hours. Not bad at all. Along with approx 2.6K page views.

Pretty decent stats, huh! I'm pleased with myself, because it was a lot of work. Thank you to everyone who supported my campaign. Kindle Scout promised FREE copies of the book to everyone who nominated it had it been chosen. I am also offering that once it is released. Keep an eye out for more information!!


Sorry, but the spammers are back. I'll need everyone to prove that they aren't a robot for a bit. Please don't let that stop you from commenting. I love your comments-- the spammers... not so much.

Thanks for stopping by! Your comments make my day. Really!!
