This was all a learning exercise.
Every New Writer needs to learn how to market and promote their work.
Yesterday as an experiment I spent my entire budget on one days worldwide Facebook advertising with a link to my book on Kindle.
I reached 10,000 people and got quite a few shares and almost 500 likes.
What I didn’t do is sell many books!
From this I take the following:
I now have a database of almost 500 extra people liking my page-useful contacts for publishing further works.
People really like the new style cover
My magical short stories are not what is popular at the moment (ok it was a trial anyway)
All in all I only made enough cash for a few cups of coffee but I learned so much more than I lost-result!
