Hello everyone. I hope you had an amazing weekend. On Friday, and over the weekend, my publisher did a free book sale with lots of their authors. I was lucky enough for the two books I had in the sale, Ninja School Mum and If you love me, I’m yours, to both rise to #1 on Amazon.co.uk and Amazon.com in multiple categories on the first day of the sale. Ninja School Mum is now #11 on the bestsellers lists in paid sales and IYLMIY is in the top #42. I decided to go all out and try some new ideas for the sale, so here’s what I did for the sale:
- I redesigned all of my social media headers. This was time consuming, but across all of my platforms the theme matched. As it’s nearly Christmas, I made them festive. Whichever page you looked at for my social media, you would have seen a complimentary design. I offer a design service for anyone who doesn’t know how to make social media headers or graphics and ads, but you can make free designs on places like Visme or Canva
- I made myself a slogan. I chose, ‘A gift for you!‘ This told my readers that I had something for them, to say thanks for being such wonderful readers. It also fit perfectly with my Christmas theme.
- I made Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, blog posts. These all matched my social media headers. I made several, so that I didn’t spam my timeline with the same content over the three day sale.

These are great simple tips and congratulations on getting that #1 spot
Great tips, Lizzie, as always! Congratulations on the fabulous reviews and success of both books. Cheers to you! 🙂
Congratulations, Lizzie!! That’s pretty amazing.
Great start to the festive season Lizzie and congratulations on your No 1 spots.. and I am sure there will be plenty of reviews to follow.
Thanks Sally. If you love me, I’m yours, had already hit the #1 spot for hot new releases in paid sales when it first came out in July, which was so exciting. It’s great to see how different kinds of promotion can reach out to new readers though. Fingers crossed on the review front!
I am sure they will roll in Lizzie..you have a great springboard with Ninja School Mum and your other books..
Thanks Sally. Aren’t we lucky to have such an amazing job!
Very festive, Lizzie. And well done on your No. 1 spots. Must have been a real boost.
Thanks Lynn. IYLMIY was already a #1 bestseller in paid sales when it was launched, which was so exciting. I think it had to do with my online and physical book launches, as I was very lucky to have so much support from my readers and the writing community. It’s great to see Ninja school Mum get there on a promotional weekend too. It’s now ranked #11 in paid sales. Happy author dance!
Congrats on your sales and rankings Lizzie:) I loved the new banners!
