Bestseller Lists and ARCs

This past few weeks, I've been really, really busy with book-ish stuff. As such, I thought I'd take this opportunity to tell you what I've been up to.

The week of Halloween, I made my ghostly gamebook, The Misadventure of Bolingbroke Manor, free on Kindle for five days. It was by far my most successful free promotion yet, and I actually got to #1 on the kids' horror charts in both France AND Italy!




Of course, I took some screenshots for posterity (and bragging rights)

So that was good.

I've also been working feverishly on Super Sporty 8, and I'm pleased to say that it's basically done. I previewed it on my Kindle for the first time yesterday, and there's just a few more things I need to fix before I can make it available for pre-order (I plan to make it go live in December, once I have the print version ready). Here's what the cover looks like:



One more rather exciting thing. If you'd like to get a copy of Super Sporty 8 before anyone else, and you'd like to get it for FREE, then you can request an Advance Review Copy (ARC) from me. All you have to do in return for the free book is to post an honest review of the book on Amazon when it goes live (if you like, you can also post your review on Goodreads). There are two ways you can request an ARC of Super Sporty 8:

  1. You can fill in this Google form. There's only two questions. Easy peasy!
  2. You can send me an email at ellie.firestone12@gmail.com with "Super Sporty 8 ARC" in the subject line. In your email, make sure you tell me what file format (PDF, Mobi or ePub) you'd like to receive your book in.
Please only request an ARC if you're actually willing to read and review the book before December, which is when the book will go live.
