So about a month ago, I gingerly dipped my toe into the e-pub/self-pub/indie-pub/whatever you wanna call it world. As the industry continues to shift and change, I’ve tried to pay attention to which way it’s going. THREAD OF HOPE was shopped diligently to all of the traditional publishing houses, but after a couple of very near misses, it was more or less just gathering dust. So I decided to do what all of the cool kids seem to be doing and self-pubbed the book thru Amazon.
It’s been like starting all over again, which isn’t a bad thing. But after spending years studying traditional publishing, the learning curve for this brave new world has been pretty huge. And one of the weird things to get adjusted to is the idea of giving your book away in order to expand your audience. (Actually, Tyrus showed me that it works when they offered LIQUID SMOKE for free for a couple of days in the fall and I think I got more exposure in those few days then I got in the previous five years.) So I’ve hemmed and hawed over the last couple of weeks, trying to figure out when to give THREAD OF HOPE away for free, to hopefully find a few new readers.
And today is the today.
Right now, if you skip on over to Amazon, you’ll be able to download THREAD OF HOPE for free. Tell all of your friends. And ask them to tell their friends. Should be free until sometime Tuesday night.
All I ask is that if you do download the book, please consider posting a review at Amazon after you’ve read it – good or bad, no strings attached.
Don’t say I never gave you anything.
