You can control how much money they burn, but you can go through a lot of money fast if you're not careful.

ETA: I don't like their ad template which is extremely limiting, so I use Canva to make a simple ad. It's easy to use once you get used to it.

And that ad is now running at 4.79% which is definitely in 'that's really good results' territory. I have a BB promotion for the same novel on the 17th so I'm curious to see how high I can get it in the ratings. I have a couple of back up ads on the 15th & 16th as well.

Between all these ads and the books I've ordered this month, yes, I am living on beans for the rest of the month.

The ads are not hard to set up. Following to see if you're getting good results, not so much so.

They are very simple Jan, but they burn money like crazy.  If you use their ad template, you can put the price of the book in the button, which I highly recommend.  Some people have said they were able to move full price books with Bookbub ads, I am not one of them.  Whenever I get the urge to try again, putting the price in the button is one way to eliminate people who don't want to pay that much from clicking on it.

GD wanted to go to the farmer's market this morning and granddaughter trumps writing any day.

But the good news is that I conquered the background removal, bought the images and finalized the covers. Not that I have the books written, of course. I gave up on GIMP. I got it right one time and then failed to get it right numerous times after that. I then went to paint.net, watched a tutorial, and VOILA!! Easy, beasy. Removing the brick wall was harder and more time consuming, but I did it. I even removed an arm that was in an awkward position. Very proud of myself.
