I’m about to expand my marketing efforts.
In fact, I’m going to do that whole landing page/giveaway thing that so many marketers say to do. See, I want people to actually buy my books at some point, and since they can’t buy my books without even seeing them this seems like the best way to do it.
If I’m going to make a living off of writing, I have to actually make a living off of writing.
As of today, A Long Walk is permafree on a number of platforms. There is a link to the landing page, with a free gift for subscribers.
Once Amazon price matches it, it will be permafree on Amazon as well.
I had to have at least one other book to sell before I was comfortable going that route. With Resource Economies launching I now have that other book.
The goal here is to have my books in the hands of readers, to have them pay me for those books, in short, to actually make a living as a writer. I know that the Dean Wesley Smith method works, but I only have a few books written, and my landlord will get mad at me if I don’t pay rent until I have a hundred of them. I might get hungry too.
Right now my mailing list has seven people, including me. I’ll let you know how the whole thing works over time.
