Friday John Ku – AKA – TGIF

 

 

The Contract

Another week rolled by and the promise of a weekend to come. Today is the end of the blog tours for The Contract. Gwen and I have enjoyed interacting with all the tour hosts and all you fine folks who visited and commented. I want to once again thank everyone who volunteered their precious time to post information about the book. Also thanks to everyone who visited the twenty-six posts. I hope you found the hosts interesting enough to come back for more visits. After all, this line-up was the creme de la creme of the blogging community.

So how did The Contract do?

We were recognized by Amazon as the number one new release in several categories. In addition, we were recognized by Amazon as a hot new release internationally and in the US. We also managed to achieve a number one kindle position in the US and Australia. So, all in all, I say we had a pretty good run. We are currently sitting at number five in Kindle.

There are some that would like to tell you that blog tours don’t do much for sales. I think we have shown that the myth is just that, a myth. So here is one last thank you for all your hard work to each and everyone who made these results possible. Today’s John Ku is all about gratitude.

It is you we thank,

For the good fortune, we share . . .

Your wings held us up.

    I join John in thanking everyone who helped introduce The Contract to their readers. Your generous support was awe-inspiring. Though we may not know one another in person, we share community through our writing. How extraordinary. Thank you one and all. ♥

  6. Excited for you. Maybe you should go into the blog tour business. (Joking) I’ve always found that a blog tour gave the most results for my books.
