I have been using the site StoryOrigin to reach new readers and to distribute sample and review copies of my books. There are many similar platforms for indie authors (some free, some paid) to host their books, cross-promote with other authors, and to find reviewers. I’ve been impressed with what the developer, Evan Gow, has done.
Giving away books is a good way to increase your readership, and hopefully those readers will become fans. Like any form of advertising, authors seek to get a return on investment.
I will start Free Book Friday this week, but since a couple of the promos are ending, I thought I should give them a boost.
Here are some of the current campaigns:
Free samples from three poets:
Find new books for Kindle Unlimited
Free sample copies: Try before you buy!
There are some poetry promos coming up so stay tuned!
