Big Buts: Insights from Hindsight

Were Isaac’s family living today, networks would line up to sign them to a reality television series contract. One brother kills it and grills it; the other squeals and deals. Dad is aloof; mom is conniving. They’re making goat hair garments and slopping stew—they even have a method of identifying each another by body-odor! Would this sell to an American television audience, or what?

What a Success!

Open BookI suppose it stands to reason: Free is a pretty consumer-friendly price. The “Read an eBook for Free” promotion at Smashwords resulted in more than 100 “purchases” of my book over the five days I participated. I am thrilled to have added a few new readers to the family. If you ordered up a free eCopy, or encouraged others to do so–THANK YOU!

I’m often asked about participating in these give-away promotions. People point out that I don’t make any money when giving copies of my books away. That’s true. But there is tremendous benefit, for my thinking, to getting copies of my books out and into people’s hands. I’m hesitant to spend money on books I know little about, and I’m a read-a-holic. So I completely understand someone’s reluctance to buy a book without having had a taste of what the author offers.

I’m always happy to give copies away.

Of course, that said, it’s especially nice to sell copies–after all, our third daughter will be entering college this fall. So help this starving artist, will you?

Thank you for helping me get the word out as you do. I appreciate sharing this literary journey with you!
