Scott Nicholson: Generosity marketing is not marketing

Via Scoop.itWriting and reading fiction

Let’s continue with our exploration of generosity as marketing (not marketing? Un-marketing?) with this great post by Scott Nicholson talking about free books. I recently downloaded a lot of free books. If they weren’t digital, they’d weigh half a ton. Those books led me to download other books which ranged from 99 cents to $2.99. Free worked for someone, though not necessarily the author who gave away his book. Now…when will I get a chance to read your book with 93 books on my Kindle? Uh-oh. I think I just found another problem for authors with “free” approach. Please click the Scoopit! link below to plug Mr. Nicholson’s observations about free into your head. Good stuff to ponder. ~ Chazz

What’s new on my Kindle (plus a 99 cent sale update!)

This morning was a website morning. Tonight is a revision night. This afternoon? My son is building a castle for school and looks annoyed when I ask him if he needs help with all that duct tape. She Who Must be Obeyed 2.0 is studying and She Who Must Be Obeyed (The Original) is writing lecture notes for the class she teaches. And me? The coffee is poured and the snow is blowing around out there, but it’s cozy by the fire.

Here’s what I bought last night:

The Indie Journey by Scott Nicholson and the collection he edited, Write Good or Die. Also got his book, Littlefield.

Nail Your Novel by my friend Roz Morris (Sorry, Roz. I’d meant to buy your writing book earlier. In fact, I’d convinced myself I already had. Now I have it for sure.)

Post-Apocalyptic Nomadic Warriors by Benjamin Wallace. (Promises to be fun.)

Now reading: Lake on the Mountain, a Dan Sharp Mystery by my friend Jeff Round.

Sometimes we get so caught up with the writing and all the other things we have to do, we forget what a lazy Sunday afternoon is and how best to spend it: Open a book and step through to the other side.

Please, writers!


I love afternoons like this!


I’m having such a great afternoon of reading, I want to encourage everyone to curl up with a book by the fire or under your coziest blanket. So, in addition to giving one short story away for free, as of now, all my shorter works of fiction are marked down to only 99 cents each. If you love them, please remember to review them. The Poeticule Bay stories (Asia Unbound, Parting Shots and the novella, The Dangerous Kind) are each 99 cents now. Two stories which feature the odd psychotherapist, Dr. Circe Papua, are Vengeance is #1 and Corrective Measures. Grab it now, because Corrective Measures is free until January 31st. Have a great night!
