Free Books

After a good bit of research I have decided to take yet another plunge and try an experiment.  I have signed both of my books into KDP Select which, if you didn't know, grants Amazon the exclusive right to sell my books for 90 days.  I have pulled both books from Barnes & Noble and Smashwords for the trial period.

It seems like a long time, but when weighed against the infinite life of an ebook, three months really isn't that long.  I've spoken to several authors participating and many have reported an increase in sales.  That's what I'm shooting for.

Part of the Select program is five days of promotions where you can list your books for free.  I will be using one of those days.  *From now until the end of the day Guarding the Healer and Contemplations of Dinner will both be free from Amazon.

I hope you will all take advantage of this and please pass it along.

*This runs from midnight to 11:59 pm PST.

Be sure to let us know how the Kindle Select goes. I'm a self-pubbed author, too, and thinking about trying it out.
