Back before I started using pre-order, going live time for me was about an hour.

First book in a series took longer, but never more than 4 hours.

I used to time it for around midnight Hawaii time on the day I wanted it to release, and it would be available for breakfast time on the East Coast.

If you're releasing a month apart, I'd still do pre-orders on books 2 and 3.

I know what people say about pre-orders and ranks, but if you get KU reads on day 1, any loss of sales rank for the pre-orders is offset by the downloads.

Having the pre-orders for the next book there on release day locks in the sales when people like the book they just read. Otherwise, people can forget or be distracted from buying when the next book comes out.

From the moment you hit the  publish button, how long does it take for amazon to actually make the book live.
I want to release all 3 books on the same day, but pre order is supposed to depress ranks so i was thinking about just hitting the publish button on book 2 and book 3.
Do i push the button 24, 48 or 72 hours before i actually want it released?

Marketing Loft [Public] / Re: I just saw a book advertised on Reddit

I've advertised on Reddit now and then. You can set it to keywords or subreddits (such as horror as well as all the horror subreddits, etc.) or you can go with a wide range. Since you pay per click, some people set it to "all subreddits" and just see who clicks.

It was really effective until they raised their rates, then I stopped. I haven't tried it in a year, though. Maybe it's still a viable alternative. I'll take a peek at it again this week.

I've got too many projects!  Still trying to decide which story to work on next. Instead, I updated a few more covers and made some for future projects...which is how I got into this mess. LOL
I may just put some titles in a hat and choose one.  :smilie_zauber:
