#5: Marketing yourself – FREE BOOK!

Many authors are taking a page from the food industry: give samples away for free and “hook” your consumer! Guess what? It works!

To celebrate the release of “A Primer for Beginning Authors” I am giving the e-book away FOR FREE for one day only:

Thursday – April 1st – This is NO JOKE!

Go to: http://www.smashwords.com/books/view/11282

Enter Coupon Code: ZM47H

Don’t have an e-reader? This “how-to” guide has short, informative chapters that can be easily read on a computer screen!

PLEASE: Share this link with your friends! There is no limit on the number of free downloads!

If you are new to publishing/marketing then you probably think I’m crazy: why would I give my book away?

1. People will accept a free offer from someone they never heard of because there is no risk to them.

2. If they like my free book, hopefully they’ll look for my other books…

3. …and those upcoming releases are spelled out in the back of the “Primer”!

4. Every book you write is advertising for every other book you write.

Many e-book publishers suggest giving away 50% of your novel! Hopefully the reader is so “hooked” that they purchase the rest of the book to see how it turns out. And if not – well, that’s powerful feedback, isn’t it? (On the “Primer” – because it’s instructional – I’m only giving away 10%. I’ll see how that works out…)

That’s GREAT advice and I fully intend to follow it. In the meantime, enjoy a free book.

    Kris, I just bought A Primer for Beginning Writers, even though I’ve just gotten a three book deal. Someone on the Celtic Heart suggested it to me after I expressed how terrified I am now that I’ve “arrived.”

    I love it. Your wit, your style. As I commented on the loop.I didn’t expect to be so entertained while I was being enlightened. Thank you. Fabulous book. I can so relate to so much of it 🙂

    Thank you SO much! So many of the how-to books just feel so HEAVY and I’m a big-picture/bottom-line kinda gal. I’n glad you found it helpful – and MAJOR CONGRATS on the 3-book deal!!!
    Kris 🙂
