BookBub Revisited

“You will receive a compliment from a stranger.”

I wanted to revisit my BookBub campaign to dissect the outcome with a little more distance than right after the deal. Though BB didn’t yield the quick results I expected, I do appreciate the experience. My book, Dragonfly Dreams, got a lot more readers because of the campaign.

I feel like my young adult novel is an extreme type of book. People either love it or hate it.

I now have two profiles on the BookBub site and have secured some new followers:

  1. Jennifer J. Chow (17 followers); my more serious Asian American books
  2. J.J. Chow (4 followers); my lighthearted mysteries

The nice thing about BookBub is that the free deal boosted my review count. Currently, there are 22 reviews (note: in January, I had 13 reviews). Also, I do feel encouraged by some of the latest reviews from strangers picking up my book:

Loved this book! Didn’t want it to ever end!!!

Not my average book to read but telling everyone I know that this is a must-read…

Dragonfly Dreams by Jennifer J. Chow will be an eye-opening opportunity in cultural education for Western readers new to Asian culture.

Thanks, BookBub!

  1. Thanks for sharing, Jennifer! I’m glad you got more readers! And, I’m always interested in getting ideas about promotion, etc. so this is good to remember.
