Raven's Peak was submitted to BookBub through Kindle Press in the UK, and it's going to be featured today in their newsletter! I've had some really good success with BookBub and running advertisements through their self-serve ad platform, but this will only be the second time I've been featured by them!
Self-Reported Statistics about finished campaigns!
Generating real traffic for your book and not worrying about nominations is the way to go.
During the campaign, you try to generate interest in your book. You get to see page views, hours spent in hot and trending, and where your outside views stack up against the views coming from kindle scout, as well as where your views are coming from (facebook, twitter, etc.)
Kindle Scout is Reader Powered Publishing. Basically, that means people vote for books (for free with an amazon account) and then Amazon publishes the most popular books.

A few days ago they announced that Raven's Peak was shortlisted in the 2016 BookViral awards program! It's really exciting, and on November 1st they will announce which ones are finalists! Here's hoping I get some good news on that day!
This last weekend, Amazon ran a promotion of my Kindle Scout novel Raven's Peak. This is three days before the second book is set to launch, and the preorder is up, so it wouldn't have been any better timing for something like this.
I just received the IndieReader review back from them a few minutes ago, and they gave it a five-star rating! It is officially IndieReader approved.
