Strange data for weekend giveaway

Well folks - another weekend promotion now over - and good old KDP cannot tell me presently what it has done for my Kindle ratings...

Figures show that over the weekend, 490 copies of Jack Ketch's Puppets were downloaded, and 184 copies of Death Lurks in Cock Muck Hill...which is a little weird...

I thought there may have been more parity and people might have downloaded both?

One to have a think about!


  1. Phil, I may have missed the Death Lurks download. When I visited Amazon, very early on Saturday, the book wasn't free. (It wasn't a browser cache error.)

    I'd intended to return, later, in case it was an Amazon glitch... but I got sidetracked with other projects.

    So, if others had my experience, that might be part of the issue.

    1. Thanks - I became aware of some confusion, early on Friday, and ended up putting both books out as giveaways to rectify confusion. Ironically the main rise in figures on both books came on Saturday and Sunday. Thought that if one sold 300 copies on Saturday and Sunday, downloaders would have chosen both...never mind!


Those voices in my head...

The voices inside my head have finally started, once again. I have been struggling with how to adapt the work I have already under...
