Nina Kimberly Campaign Announcement

Attention everyone!

 

Nina Kimberly the Merciless here, star of Nina Kimberly the Merciless, by Christiana Ellis. As I am sure you are all aware, the battle has run into an unforeseen interruption.

 

The campaign on Friday the 15th started off extremely well, and my book rose from a sales rank of 2 hundred Thousand to number 533 overall by 11:40 AM Eastern Time. Although the book had not yet been posted to the specific genre charts, that sales rank would have been Number #11 in Fantasy, #2 in “Epic” Fantasy, and #1 in “General” Fantasy.

 

That was before noon eastern time! There is no doubt in my mind that that was only the beginning.

 

But the Inertians must have been afraid, because they then resorted to a desperate tactic that we had not forseen. It is still not clear exactly what happened, but the Inertians have caused some kind of an error in the Amazon system that resulted in the book being reported as out of print. When that happened, loyal barbarians could no longer purchase the book, thus preventing us from rising any higher in the rankings.

 

Right now, we don’t know yet when this will be fixed. We didn’t foresee this strategy. However, we have our best spies and shield-breakers working on this as we speak and hopefully we will be through their defenses soon.

 

In the meantime, I know that there are a lot of you out there, just like me. Spoiling for a fight! You thought you were going to fight some evil spirits, only to have a door slammed in your face! If you’re like me, that ticks you off and you want to do something about it! Well, here’s the new plan. Right now, the Amazon issue requires a scalpel, not a broadsword, and so I have different orders for you, my loyal horde!

 

Although continuing to attack Amazon is satisfying, right now, it is counter-productive, so instead, I want all of you to focus on finding and converting new recruits! The Inertians specialize in disrupting momentum, preventing changes from ever happening. Now that they have interrupted our campaign, we must work all the harder to be ready to resume as soon as we breach the shields again. We must find anyone and everyone who has not yet heard the call, and prepare them to join our cause!

 

We have several tools available, the videos, the promos, but your best weapon is the pdf version of the book. It is easily distributed on blogs, websites, forums, and Podcast feeds. It has the complete version of the story, so people unfamiliar with the story can determine whether or not they will like it, and most importantly, it contains links to the Amazon storefront page. The people who click those links now will not be able to purchase it yet, but every click-through will be one more hit, showing the Inertians that their tactic has not eliminated demand for the book.

 

So go, help spread the word, spread the pdf version of the book far and wide, and when we once again break through the Inertians defenses, we will be ready. I know I can count on all of you, and thank you for your loyalty and support. Now get out there, and be merciless!

When we last left Nina, she was in a spot of trouble. Now she has one dead knight, one idiot king, an arena full of furious spectators and the super-heated breath of an angry dragon on her face. A difficult position to be in, even for an Uhk.
