The story behind Free Book Friday:
I’ve met many authors and readers during my time marketing, cross-promoting, and blogging. I think writers have a responsibility to inform readers about all the indie authors out there in the very crowded world of book publishing. You can’t do it alone, and why would you when you have a supportive group available?
Readers don’t just read one author – they stick with their favorite genres. There lies the power in cross-promotion. If one of my readers buys a book from an author I promote, then chances are there will be a reciprocal effect, or so is the hope. Do I want to boost sales? Of course I do. Do I want to boost other’s sales? Why not. It’s called karma.

New this week:
Reading & Writing Sites
I have used the writing sites Wattpad in the past, and most recently, Inkitt to gain some readership for my books by posting my sample books there – with little success. I don’t know how many readers visit those sites vs. how many are writers.
Have you visited either site as a reader? A writer? What has been your experience?
My next posting will be a bit of a test. I am going to post my NaPoWriMo collection on each site to see which one excels in two categories: Reader acquisition and site support.
Before I post I still need a few people to read over the collection:
Do you have an eye for details? I compiled all my NapoWriMo poems into one volume, but it needs a once over to check for errors. Send me a message below. I’ll send a word doc. for editing.
