Novel Promotion Tracking

The intent of this post is to make it easier for me and, possibly, other authors to see what promotions work…and which ones don’t. It has no other value, so don’t get too excited. No excitement is appropriate. Maybe a little ennui.

RLRR Promotion Tracking

Amazon and FB ads are not shown. Silly early-stage promos (e.g., silly TikTok one, etc.) are not shown b/c they had no real value.

See Run Lab Rat Run Milestones for more details. Consider doing more promos after re-cover esp. in parallel with Arachniss release (See above).
