Write and publish with love and fury.

Sell Your Books the Old-Fashioned Way

I laughed with recognition when I read somewhere that free is the new ninety-nine cents. Now it seems free isn’t the key to readers’ locks, either.

 

Check out this post at Bert Blogging: Bert’s fed up with free and even raising the prices on his books, too. I have friends who swore free worked but that free is now over since Amazon’s algorithm changed. Read Bert Carson’s interesting take on why free is silly at the link below. It’s good data to consider as we all feel our way forward blindly, trying to figure out what the next marketing key will be.

    I haven’t done free, but I was intrigued by it for a while. Now I’m hoping it goes extinct. I guess we have to go through these cycles to kind of let the silt settle.

    We do free. Why free? Even if it doesn’t shoot us into the outer reaches of the indie authorship atmosphere, 200 new potential readers from one free day is 200 new potential readers. I’ll take that.
