So Amazon has a new promotion where you can discount your book for a brief amount of time and it will slowly rise back to its normal price over a set time.
Starting tomorrow (11/5) at 11:00 am EST, Mesh: The Pioneers will be $0.99 for 36 hours and then $1.99 for the following 36 hours. Take a look if you haven’t already.
The final polish on Part Two is almost complete. Mesh: The Other Side should be released by the first week of December. An excerpt will be post on this site soon.
Almost 200 downloads already. Thank you to all who have spread the word about the free promo (ends at midnight). The cover for part 2 will be revealed soon.
Mesh is available for free over on amazon. Check it out if you can. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00DYV3H34
And sorry to get a bit spammy for the next few days, but I want to make sure I get the word out.
Yesterday, I talked about the PR aspect of self-publishing. One other approach I am taking, which is less self-promotion and more a marketing strategy, is to give the book away for free for the first few days.
My reasoning is twofold. First, most of the first people to download the book will be friends and family. I don’t want them to have to pay for the book. Secondly, because Amazon still counts free downloads in its ranking, giving the book away for free might help it rise in the Amazon sci-fi ranks and bring more attention.
That’s my thinking anyway. So if you want to take advantage of the free period, it will be three days, from August 4th until August 6th.
