Want a free book?
You can have mine!
I’m looking for readers interested in urban fantasy / paranormal fantasy / romance / NA (New Adult) genres to read my book – for free! The only thing I’m asking in return is a fair review on Amazon and Goodreads. That’s it! You get a free book, and I get some feedback. Sounds good, no?
I can provide you a copy in either PDF, epub, or mobi formats. If you’re feeling especially generous, Siren Snow is also available for purchase on amazon in print or kindle editions. Just click-the-pic!
Baring that, let me know if you’re interested and I’ll get you a copy. :) Reblog or share this if you know someone who might be interested!
I just had one of those panicky, “omg, how am I going to promote this thing once it’s done” moments. Edits are coming along faster than I thought they would, and I think I’m going to be finished in just about two weeks. (Maybe sooner). Which means I STILL need to nail down formatting for the print AND ebook version, WITHOUT having microsoft word. Which is a huge pain in the ass, because I don’t have an extra $140 to buy it, and Open Office only does so much.
So that’s mildly annoying. I hope I’m smart enough to figure it all out. =\
And then we’re back to the whole “omg how do I promote this crap” after it’s out. I’d like to do a blog tour, but those are often paid for and I don’t have enough money right now to PAY for one, so I guess I’ll have to whore myself out and see what comes of it.
Can you really do anything but seek out reviews/interviews/post to your page/blog/twitter every day? I feel like there’s something big I’m missing. Obviously, like with any writer, you wanna get the absolute maximum exposure you can get, but as I’ve never done this before, I’m 98% clueless about most of this stuff.
I have this sneaking suspicion that I’m going to get a handful of sales when it comes out (you know, pity sales from fam and friends mostly), and then it’ll abruptly halt, lol. I’m thinking I’m going to enroll in KDP select and try to strategically use my free days to boost rank or something. But then, of course, that helps a lot when you have some people spouting “hey, this book is free today!” for you. Hmm.
I thought about a giveaway, but I don’t think anyone wants stuff from my book yet, ha. I can make a poster of the book cover, and sign it, and have some printed copies signed, but I’m not 100% sure anyone would want it from an unknown. Apparently I can also make an iPhone case with my cover on it (which is totally cool), but again, it’d be a waste if 4 people signed up for the giveaway, lol. Maybe after a few more books and a few hundred more FB page likes, or something.
Does anybody have some step by step advice for this? Maybe a site, or a list of stuff I can do?
Ah well. I’ll figure it out. @_@
