Norman Morrison (fableshop) | 1 comments Hello Authors!
Permafree on Amazon proved to be a chase for me. After a year of progressively more fierce nudging with no success I finally threw up my hands and contacted Amazon. In a couple of hours my book went free. It's my free intro into the wider wackier world of my own devising, Cowchip, Alabama.


Now, since I'm in the middle of things I don't know how it will shake out but so far it went from zip to varying positions under #5 in its two categories! Maybe it won't last, but I can tell you that it is a fun thing while it lasts.

I would urge you to make one of your series books free by all means.

In the meantime I'd like to hear your current strategy for no or low cost promotion of free or permafree books.

Frankly, I'm skeptical about the traditional routes of Twitter/FB, etc. I spend an awful lot of time doing old fashioned promotion and not seeing satisfying verifiable ROI. There MUST be a smarter way to promote. There has to be. What am I missing?

The neat thing about our biz is that information sharing does not diminish our own sales. We rarely meet anyone with which we're competing head to head.

I'd like to hear what you have done that works. And if I have a clue about something you have a question with, I love sharing.

You're always welcome at my places:

Your fan,

Rebecca Forster (rebeccaforster) | 59 comments Norm, making my book perm free years ago made the difference for me. Results were fabulous and it was at the urging of another author. I followed his lead and never looked back. Good luck with what you're up to . Bookbub, of course, is always a great advertising venue
