Julia Hughes - writing thrilling adventures - time after time after time.
Confession time - I'd rather be writing books than selling them. So when Amazon introduced KDP select free days, I saw this as an absolute gift.
Then Amazon changed the rules slightly (their ball, their pitch, their game) and going free now no-longer results in the same sales ranking lift. Those who study markets and know about these things predict that the writing is on the wall, and advise authors that going free should no longer be considered as a short cut to fame and fortune. Bad news for those who loath marketing - like me. However, I'm going to continue using KDP, and not just because I'm bone idle. Simply because it all becomes worth while, when not just one, but two readers enjoyed my recent giveaway "An Explosive Time" enough to say so publicly. Thank you guys! You've given me all the encouragement I need.
And tomorrow, The Griffin Cryer is free - for a whole five days - from Wednesday 11th December right through to the launch of "The Griffin's Boy", on 15th December. You didn't really think you were getting away without a plug did you? Many of you've already downloaded "The Griffin Cryer" to your kindles. If you have read, and enjoyed, please take time out to tell others - and maybe even consider writing a review. An easy way to earn good karma:)
I may have mentioned previously(!) but I'm entirely grateful to friends old and new for their help in bringing "The Griffin's Boy" to readers' attention. Today's the day we take flight, and hopefully see you over on "The Serious Reader" for the start of the Flying Book Tour - aka as The Great Griffin Giveaway. If you do have a book related site, and you'd like to share this promotion with your readers, then it couldn't be easier.
