On Sunday, I had a BookBub ad for my Kinfairlie Knights boxed set of medieval Scottish romances. Today, let’s look at the results. (I hope you find this as interesting as I do.)
Overall, this promotion was pretty amazing.
At Amazon US, Kinfairlie Knights reached #129 overall paid in the Kindle store, as well as #1 in Medieval Historical Romance and #1 in Scottish Historical Romance. Just as with the list for Wyvern’s Mate, there are a lot of Kindle Unlimited titles, but this time, they all seem to be the kind of books I’d expect to find in the bestseller list for the category.
At At Amazon UK, my bundle rose to #656 overall paid in the Kindle store, as well as #2 in the Scottish Historical romance and #2 in the Medieval Historical romance categories. Let’s look at my list neighbours there:
At Amazon CA, Kinfairlie Knights rose to #22 overall paid in the Kindle store (wow!), as well as #1 in Scottish Historical romance, #1 in Medieval Historical romance and – a surprise ranking – #1 in Supernatural Mystery. Maybe that’s because The Rogue is a Gothic romance with suspense elements, and The Renegade’s Heart has paranormal elements.
At Amazon AU, the rankings were different again. The book rose to #58 overall paid in the Kindle store, and #2 on the Historical Romance list. (Yay!)
I was pretty much shocked when I visited B&N to find Kinfairlie Knights sitting on the index page for the Nook store, at #4 overall! That’s fabulous!
I dug in a bit more to that, because it’s good news. Here’s the same data displayed on the B&N Top 100 Nook books page:
You might have noticed that #1-#3 aren’t romances, so it’s not a huge surprise that my book was at #1 in the romance section. Hi, Nora!
And there’s Kinfairlie Knights again, at #1 in the Historical Romance section at Nook. Nice company there. 🙂
Next, I went to Kobo to check on results there, and found more good news – #1 in Historical romance and #1 in Paranormal romance.
I hopped into those two bestseller lists to check out my company – I don’t know Lecia but we sure were neighbours on historical romance lists this past weekend.
And these two books don’t show up in all the screenshots, but they were both list neighbours for Kinfairlie Knights in multiple places.
And finally, at Apple, Kinfairlie Knights was #13 on the Romance bestseller list.
What an absolutely terrific promotion this was! Thanks to all of you who picked up a copy of Kinfairlie Knights for just 99 cents. If you didn’t do that yet, it’s still on sale.
Also, you might want to look for Highland Heroes, another bundle of three medieval Scottish romances of mine, which is also 99 cents right now.
