Saskatchewan author’s book reaches Amazon Top 100 thanks to Market & Export support from Creative Saskatchewan
Arthur Slade was raised on a ranch in the Cypress Hills of Saskatchewan and is the author of the Amber Fang book series. Slade is also a recent grant recipient of Creative Saskatchewan’s Market & Export Development program.
Thanks to the support provided by this program, Slade was able to find great success in the online promotion the Amber Fang series.
“The sale of the Amber Fang book led to several very positive results. The biggest result was reaching #47 on the Amazon.com store and reaching #1 in several categories on Amazon, including Young Adult Horror, Young Adult Adventure, Horror, and Vampire books… this was a very exciting achievement (that will help with future sales).
This also meant that the book sold over 1500 copies in one day (the second day of the promo), another record for any of my books. The book was also in the top 100 on Amazon.ca and the top 500 on Amazon.uk and Amazon.aus. So it really was, for that week, a worldwide success.
On top of that the Amber Fang book also made it to the top 20 on the Barnes and Noble website in the US and into the top 100 on Apple Books in Canada and the US and the top twenty on Kobo in Canada.
So overall, this was a very successful campaign. Because there were ads within the ebook, this campaign also meant that the audiobook version of Amber Fang had a jump in sales and other novels of mine also increased in sales during that week (and continue to sell).”
We’re thrilled to congratulate Slade on his success!
