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.

Not Free But Noteworthy
Authors often purchase copies of books from their distributor/printer to sell on their own, which allows for better profit margins.
I have been talking to a few authors to do some promotion of signed paperback copies purchased directly from the author. Nothing makes me happier than to sign my book and send it off to the reader. I think it creates a unique bond between author and readers.
The biggest expense is shipping, which can often be more than the book itself. It is for that reason that I am only able to mail my books to readers in Canada and the US. So for all of you in the UK, here is your chance to support a local author:
Here are all previously showcased promos still running:
