The Reddit Effect

Credits: Andie712b (Flickr)So far, I have promoted my book mainly on social media and I’ve seen great response from Android developers.

Since I switched to a CC-BY-SA license for my eBook last month, I’ve seen downloads increase steadily with about 10-15 new download every day.

That was before last night!

Yesterday evening, before going to bed, I posted a link on reddit under the Android category to promote my book. My book had 230 downloads when I got to sleep. I got up this morning with more than a thousand downloads!

I found out later that morning that my post on reddit received many votes, and attracted many Android developers.

I’m pretty happy with the results. The 1000 downloads milestone was pretty far for me but, wow, Internet, you still impress me today!
