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.

Dropping Like a Rock
If you don’t have a book listed on Amazon, this may look a bit odd. This is my sales rank for my free sample book: Excerpts from the book Lines By Leon: Poems, Prose, and Pictures . As you can see, it doesn’t take long to shoot to the top (it got as high as #2 in one of the categories), and just as quickly it can plummet out of sight. It depends on how many sales the competitors in the category have against yours. So, if you want the free Kindle version, click the above link or feel free to pass it on!
Just for comparison, here is my sci-fi book:
Every time there is a sale, you can see the jump, followed by a decline until the next. I think the highest it got was #250.
