KindleFever - Congratulations to The Magnificent Seven!

Well, KindleFever, the challenge on my forum to publish an e-book to the Kindle platform in June, is now over. Thank you to everyone who took part, and congratulations to those who successfully completed the challenge.

In this post I'll list all the successful participants and their e-books. Obviously, it would be great if you could check the books out, give them a mention in social media, add them to your Amazon wishlists, and maybe even download and review them. None is expensive, and several are currently on free promotions or will be soon.

As this is my blog, I hope you'll excuse me mentioning my book first! I had to change my plans slightly after events conspired to ensure I had less time to devote to the challenge than I hoped.

The book I originally planned to adapt for KindleFever had some quite tricky formatting, and I could see I wouldn't have the time to do it justice. So instead I adapted one of the reports I currently give away to people signing up for my free E-Writer Updates service.

So my new Kindle e-book is called Three Great Techniques for Plotting Your Novel or Screenplay - it's based on content from my Write Any Book in Under 28 Days course. Here's a link for the Kindle e-book on Amazon.com and here's a link for Amazon.co.uk. For any other national Amazon stores, just search for the ASIN B00DP8HKLQ.

Three Great Techniques for Plotting Your Novel or Screenplay costs the minimum 99c or 77p (plus VAT), but I am offering it free until Sunday 7 July as a launch promotion. Even if you have already seen my original report, I'd still be very grateful if you would download the new Kindle version and/or leave a short review. Thank you very much!

The other successful participants in KindleFever are as follows...

Terrance Bramblett ('TheDude' on MWC) with his story 'Changes' - Amazon.com / Amazon.co.uk. This is on a free promotion until Saturday 6 July.

Sally Jenkins with 'Maxine's Story - The Museum of Fractured Lives' - Amazon.com / Amazon.co.uk 

Rohi Shetty with '200 Humorous Tweetable Quotations' - Amazon.com / Amazon.co.uk

Glynis Scrivens with 'The Flying Scotsman Down Under' - Amazon.com / Amazon.co.uk

Caroline Gebbie with her dark psychological thriller 'One by One They Disappear' - Amazon.com / Amazon.co.uk

Ronald E. Newton with 'Build Kindle Mobi and Epub E-Books' - Amazon.com / Amazon.co.uk

Margaret Bemrose with her children's book 'Aunt Bessy and the Runaway Poem' - Amazon.com / Amazon.co.uk

Congratulations again to our Magnificent Seven, and I wish them every success with their new e-books. If you want to check when (or if) any of them are on free promotions, keep an eye on this topic on the forum.

Incidentally, a lot of useful ideas, tips and advice were shared during KindleFever, and I've already been asked not to close down the board but keep it for future reference. To avoid clutter and confusion it will probably need to be archived at some stage, but I'm happy to keep it open for a while. If you're interested in writing for Kindle, but maybe didn't have the time or inclination to join in KindleFever (this time), you might still enjoy browsing the various topics on the KindleFever board.

As ever, if you have any comments or questions about KindleFever, or writing for Kindle in general, please do post them below.

Thanks for the shout out, Nick - and the encouragement from Kindle Fever to get another book onto Amazon's 'shelves'. I'm planning a free promo in a couple of weeks.
Best wishes to all the other authors.

Thanks for supporting KindleFever, Sally, and congrats on getting your book out. It's very sensible to schedule your KDP Select free promotions a bit in advance ;-)

I should also apologise to anyone who tried to download my new e-book for free yesterday and found they still had to pay. It took a lot longer for the promotion to become active than I thought. But it is DEFINITELY available for free until Sunday 7 July now!

Thank you for the push with Kindle fever to get these written.

Maybe we should make it an annual event?

Good luck to all the authors and keep on kindling.

Thanks, Caroline, and good luck with your own KindleFever e-book.

There is every chance we will make it a regular event, and obviously I hope more people will join in next time. One thing I've really enjoyed about KindleFever has been seeing people who were initially lacking in confidence discover that it's easier to publish an e-book on Kindle than they thought!

Thanks a lot, Nick.

I do hope you organize KindleFever every year or even every six months.

My first e-book on Kindle is available for free download today at: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00DG6DU34

Well done, Rohi. I've just downloaded it and will try to review soon.

Thanks for creating a deadline and a place where questions could be asked - without those two things, my Flying Scotsman project would still be in the 'too hard' basket.

Thanks for offering the Kindlefever quest in June. It was the motivation I needed.
