Indie Author Land has chosen my crime novel Pull the Trigger as one of the 50 Indie books worth reading in 2015.
I’m very very happy to announce that the famous indie and self-publishing website Readfree.ly (formerly known as Indie Author Land) has a soft spot for my mystery and suspense stories! This year, Pull the Trigger, a Chase Williams Murder Mystery #2 has been chosen as one of the 50 self published books worth reading.
Have to say that comes partially unexpected. Whilst the readers of the website choose – amongst 1000+ books – their favourite that are going to compete for the final 50 spots, it’s up to the readers from all over the internet to cast their votes and express their appreciation towards one or more shortlisted books. I was so busy with my wedding and my everyday SEO job that I didn’t have one moment to ask my social media audience for a vote.
A BIG thanks to my mailing list crew
The people of my mailing list have massively voted for Pull the Trigger – as they did last year with Into the Killer Sphere. Writing a brief email to them was the only thing I did to get some votes for this competition. I feel so lucky to have such a solid fan base I can count on when it’s time to support me and Chase – I will never thank them enough for their love.
There’s something better than the TOP 10
Pull the Trigger ranks No40 in the top 50 of the overall chart and I’m so glad it didn’t reach the TOP 10.
You might think I’m crazy or jealous since I couldn’t climb higher than position 40? Nope. The reason why I’m happy to have reached the lowest position of the TOP 50 lies in the visibility opportunity of this chart.
Last year, Into the Killer Sphere almost made it, getting the No49 position out of 50. You can’t believe it, but that boosted my sales a lot.
Indie Author Land always shows the 50 indie books worth reading in the reverse sense, meaning that the lowest ranked books are the first ones visible by potential customers. As a matter of fact, Into the Killer Sphere was the second most seen book in the chart!
This year, Pull the Trigger is in the second page – let’s see how the visibility will impact my sales.
People love detective stories and mysteries set in Italy
Overall, I’m very glad to see that the Chase Williams murder mystery book series is having the success in terms of appreciation and sales I hope it would have some day. That pushes me even more to keep writing and add another book to the series as soon as possible.
