This week I’m having a special free giveaway to promote my first book Victory Lane: The Chronicles – Pursuit of a Dream. The e-book version is currently available exclusively for the Kindle as part of my trial run with Amazon’s Kindle Direct Publishing Select program, which allows Amazon Prime members to borrow one eBook per month through the lending program. Amazon also allows up to five free promo days per 90-day period, and since the end of my 90-day KDP Select period is coming up, I decided to take advantage of it. So after figuring out how to make my book available for free, I launched my promo campaign, which began on Tuesday.
Your feedback is appreciated.
So, why am I giving my book away for free? What’s the catch? The only catch is that by offering my book for free to my readers I’m asking that you simply return the favor by giving me some feedback on what you liked and maybe disliked about Pursuit of a Dream. I’m looking for honest feedback to help me grow as an author. Getting honest feedback will help me gauge what my readers like and dislike about the book. This will help me improve as an author and produce quality content in the future by continuing to write in a style that you like and make adjustments on certain aspects of writing that you may not like. This can only result in a more enjoyable experience in future books.
After reading Pursuit of a Dream, if you would like to leave feedback you can do so in a couple of ways: 1) You can write a review on my book’s page on Amazon, or 2) You can post your feedback on my book’s page on SharkbaitWrites.com. Reviews on blogs are nice, too. 🙂 Also, be sure to “Like” my book on Amazon.
Campaign results in Top 5 spot in Sports Fiction category
So far, after some promoting on Twitter and Goodreads, over 135 people have downloaded Pursuit of a Dream, which I’m very grateful for. During this promotion, my book has reached as high as the No. 3 spot in Top 100 Free e-books in the Sports Fiction category on Amazon. Granted, there aren’t that many sports fiction books listed for free right now, but it still puts a smile on my face to see my book there. My last free promotion was through Smashwords, which only generated about 10 downloads, so you can imaging how pleasantly surprised I was to see the great response this promotion has had.
What if you don’t have a Kindle?
If you don’t have a Kindle but would still like to read my book, you can also read my book on a number of Kindle applications available for PC/Mac, iPhone, iPad, and any device that has the Android operating system. I’ll include it in the list of links at the bottom of this post.
For those who have already downloaded my book to their Kindles and Kindle apps, I thank you very much and hope you enjoy reading Victory Lane: The Chronicles – Pursuit of a Dream as much as I enjoyed writing it. I plan on working on Book 2 of Victory Lane: The Chronicles later this year while I continue to work on my first supernatural horror tentatively titled The Devil’s Nightmare.
