Head over to Amazon and check out my latest short story release, Plutoed. I’ve listed it with KDP Select, which means it’s exclusive to Amazon for 90 days, but also, for the next three days, it’s FREE. Right now, it’s at #22 in free humor, and it’s climbing. It’s also received a great review!
The idea here is to see if all the free downloads will act as a “loss-leader” and result in a bump in sales of my other books. So, this will require some data tracking for a while, to really get an understanding of the value of this program.
At worst, I’ve managed to get exposure to a few hundred more readers. At best, that exposure will translate into significantly increased sales – and hopefully that higher level of sales will be sustained over time, as people investigate (and buy) my other books, and word-of-mouth increases.
I don’t recommend this method unless you’ve got a good number of books available already (Plutoed is my 27th book available) – simply because of the restriction of exclusivity that KDP Select requires.
We’ll see how it goes! Meanwhile, head over and download it for free while you can…and help push me to #1 in free humor!
