People keep asking me why I give my books away for free. Here is why (got this email from a fellow writer this morning and it made my day).
In the first 3 days of this experiment, I sold (okay, gave away) quadruple the amount of books I sold all of last year. I spent 3 days at the <a href="/search?terms=%231" data-href="/search?terms=%231" data-capture="hashtagClick" class="hashtag-link">#1</a> spot on two different Amazon bestseller lists, gained a bunch of new emails for my mailing list, and already sold a few print books as well. THANK YOU for taking the lead and inspiring me (and other writers) to try this out. I'm planning to write a blog post about why I'm offering my book for free, and will for sure give you a great big shout out when I do!
