Today I feel like death, but with a better attitude than I imagine the ole reaper has. Why? Because beginning to day, Love You to Death is FREE for Kindle users! It's only 10:48 AM - very specific, I know - and already 48 people have picked it up. Woot!
I was asked last night why I was offering it for free. Can you imagine the revenue if 48 people had bought it? But here's the thing - I'm new. And I'm self-published. I don't have a marketing team behind me. There's me and word of mouth. I argued with myself for several weeks whether I wanted to do this or not. I had to remove Love You to Death from ARe and suspend its availability on Nook to do so. In the end I think it's worth it. The exposure alone will boost future sales. The whole point in offering it this way is to get people to read it and talk about.
What makes this hilarious is that my good friend Rachel is hosting a 1000 fan celebration today through December 15th that I'm participating in. It seems I'm everywhere!
blog. I'm giving away a $25 gift card to a bookstore of the winner's choice and a copy of Love You to Death. There are several other fun prizes available as well, so you should all go check it out!
