Free Book Friday Dec 24

Hey, where is this week’s interview?
-There isn’t one this week.
Why not?
-Just the way it worked out, I guess.
C’mon, there’ gotta be like a million authors out there.
-But not all of them want to be interviewed.
But some do.
-Yes, some do.
-Well what?
What am I going to read?
-What if I compile a list of my favorite questions from previous interviews?
Great! I’ll wait right here.
-I’m not doing it now. Next Friday.
Oh. But what am I going to read now?
I heard that.
I saw that.
-Here’s a copy of my novella. I haven’t formatted it yet as an ARC, so it’s like an AARC.
Nice! A sci-fi novella, “The View from Here / The View Inside” Haven’t decided on a title yet?
-Not yet
Can I suggest one after I read it?
-You sure can!

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.
