If you’re a writer, you’re looking for readers. Or why write anything in the first place?
So many books, so little time. How does the reader find your book among the sea of other books?
I enrolled my first two publications in Amazon’s Select program not because I expected a lot from the Kindle Lending Library, but because Amazon offers other promotions for Select books. One of these is the Countdown Deal, in which a book is bargain priced at $0.99 for a set time, then goes up in increments for a week. My first effort in this direction begins tomorrow.
Will it work? No idea. How do people find out about the reduced price? Better still, will they enjoy the first book enough to buy others? Will they be inspired to write a review?
I’ll let you know about sales results beginning day after tomorrow; information about reviews might take considerably longer.
Sales currently? Fairly slow. None, then one, then nothing. Occasionally there’s a spike. But generally speaking, the sales have flattened out. So I think it’s time to try ‘marketing’.
