8 Hour Ebook Challenge - results

I took part in this challenge from Joe Konrath: http://jakonrath.blogspot.com/2013/08/8-hour-ebook-challenge-winners.html  Basically, if you haven't seen it, you write, edit, format, create cover art, and publish a story all in the space of eight hours.

I created this:




The Sword, the Dragon, and the Lie, by Alice M. Roelke



I felt it was a big success, because it gave me the courage to write a story I wanted to.  I spent time writing and editing, not just second-guessing myself, the story turned out well.  At least, I was happy with it.  :)

I set free promotion for five days, and 219 people downloaded copies.  One of them has now reviewed it (4 stars!!).  :) 

I probably would never have written this without the challenge to give me a little push, even though it was an idea I wanted to play with.  I enjoyed myself, and the story kept surprising me.

Someone has started a regular, off-shoot challenge:
I'd love to participate again, but to be honest, I don't know when I will!  Probably not this week.  :)
