When 'The Fire Mages' was published a month ago, I decided to do some promotion to give it a bit of an early boost. Apart from a blog tour and a Goodreads giveaway, I also set up two weeks of paid ads with sites that email readers about discounted books.

For a total spend of $261, I sold or lent over 600 books, acquired a number of reviews and more than covered the cost of the promotion. The most effective promotion sites for me were: ENT, BargainBooksy, GenrePulse and Bknights. Best of all, two weeks after the promotion ended, sales are still buoyant.

Full details in the blog post.

For anyone looking for a bargain, my epic fantasy adventure 'The Fire Mages' is at a special introductory price just now. You can pick up a copy for just $0.99. What's it about? A determined girl, a cranky mage, a strange heir and a mysterious old city. And a shedload of magic - what more could you want? At your local Amazon: http://myBook.to/firemages.

I recently did some promotion on 'The Plains of Kallanash', reducing the price to free for three days, and paying for mentions in a few email lists. A previous 2-day free promo resulted in 800 downloads, so my expectations were for perhaps 2,000. I ended up with 4,400 downloads, a rash of new reviews, and new readers and ratings on Goodreads. And a bonus: a bump of paid sales after the promo ended. A good result. Full details on my blog.

'The Fire Mages' is nearing publication, and I now have ARCs available. It's an epic fantasy adventure, a coming of age story, with a bit of a romance. 384 pages. If anyone is interested in reading it and (perhaps) leaving a review on Goodreads, Amazon or your blog, let me know. I have it in mobi, epub and pdf formats. More detailson my blog.

'The Plains of Kallanash' has been out for about six weeks, so it was time for a little promotion. I recently ended a Goodreads giveaway and took advantage of the free days with Amazon's Select program. It was all very entertaining, and shifted loads of free downloads, but probably hasn't added many paying sales. Full results on my blog http://paulinemross.co.uk/.

What reviewers have said:

"This is a grand, ambitious tale full of thought-provoking ideas and surreal circumstances that somehow manage to strike a balance between the real and the fantastical."

"Fascinating social dynamics and worldbuilding. This debut novel by Ross is full to the brim with sold writing, interesting characters..."

"A very strong debut..."
