Free promo for Mesh: Horizons starts tomorrow. SJYC
The second excerpt from “Mesh: The Other Side” has been posted under the “Excerpts” tab. Take a look. The book comes out the first week of December.
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.
Tomorrow and Saturday, Part One of Mesh will be free on Amazon to mark the two month mark since its debut (and two months until Part Two’s debut). Please tell anyone you know that might like a decent scifi yarn. http://www.amazon.com/Mesh-The-Pioneers-ebook/dp/B00DYV3H34/
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.
