So we're going to try a free giveaway and see how it affects my ranking.

Don't Feed the Fairies is free today. http://www.amazon.com/dp/B006GGF6PG/

Please download it, because from what I gather, the more downloads I get, the higher it goes in the Amazon ranks, and this translates into increased sales for the following week or longer.

I've downloaded it myself, so that's one. I could suggest it to others if you'd like? They might not be the 'target audience' but I'm sure you'd get quite a few downloads as a result.

I've grabbed a copy. Wouldn't be my genre usually but I look forward to reading it.
I take it that you're conducting a bit of a sales experiment by giving it free. Unless it's confidential I'd be interested if you were prepared to post a follow up on the effects, just percentages would be fine. Best of luck.

Oh yes, I'll be posting up the results.

This book has been on sale for several months, and it consistantly sells a few every day, but usually single digit, not dozens. So I want to see what happens when I give it away, particularly if it affects sales afterwards, and if it affects sales of my newer book.

So far today, there have been over seventy downloads.

I don't see its current rank. Is that available anywhere?

I like supporting things like this, and download the kindle app for PC, hope that counts... I don't know that many amazon users or maybe that's just me... but the best of luck with your strategy.

Thanks. Yes, it counts.

I'll tell you next week how it all worked. Right now, I'm ranking up there with Douglas Adams and ahead of HG Wells.
