Another Ad experiment

My daughter, Penny, has put out a Facebook ad, this time targeted at UK, South Africa, Zambia and Zimbabwe, people who read and like adventure books. This one was based on a pay per click model, instead of simple pay per impression. Cost of $10.00

Results are 16 clicks from 20,000 exposures, so a much better ratio there; I think she just sent them to smashwords site, as she said the actual book address was too long. During the time it ran, 1 book was downloaded, as far as I can tell.
Total downloads from smashwords now 15, all free with use of the coupon(GR96T)which is good until Sunday 13th.
I have posted on several threads on Kindle Boards,got included in the free books thread run by knbr - this may have drawn several of the downloads on the 6th &7th, and of course on Facebook, Kindle, Authonomy, Slushpilereader and Authors on Show. Also signed up for a first page critique at http://yourfirstpage.blogspot.com/ and posted the first chapter of Eland Dances on http://nightreading.ning.com/ for critique/comments.

Howdy would you mind stating which blog platform you're using? I'm looking to
start my own blog in the near future but I'm having a hard time selecting between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and I'm looking for something completely unique.
P.S Apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!

I was wondering if you ever considered changing the
structure of your website? Its very well written; I love what youve
got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.
Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or 2 images.

Maybe you could space it out better?

constantly i used to read smaller articles which also clear
their motive, and that is also happening with this piece of writing which I am reading here.

I almost never write remarks, but i did a few searching and wound up here "Another Ad experiment".
And I do have a few questions for you if it's allright. Could it be just me or does it seem like some of these responses come across like written by brain dead people? :-P And, if you are posting at other online social sites, I would like to keep up with everything new you have to post. Could you list of all of your public sites like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?
