Why Do Authors Give Away Free Kindle eBooks? That’s Crazy, Right?

Indieblog1People often ask why I work so hard, only to turn around and give my kindle eBooks away for free. The answer is REVIEWS! In order for an independent author to excel in an increasingly competitive market, they must occasionally offer their work for free, in hopes of receiving feedback from readers. Positive reviews encourage other readers to purchase the book, and Amazon also rewards the author by promoting titles with a significant amount of good reviews. Free advertising, anyone?

Another attractive benefit of a free book promotion is that those books often pick up a few extra sales in the days following their giveaway … sometimes. This theory has worked in the past when I had a significant amount of free downloads. However, if only 50 people take advantage of your offer, you will probably not see a boost in sales. To make the most of my KDP Select promotions, I spend hours submitting my free and discounted titles to sites that offer free advertising to authors. The time and hard work is worth the increase in downloads, so I recommend this marketing method to any author who offers a free or discounted book deal.

Here’s what I’m giving away for Labor Day 2016:

  • My highly rated romantic thriller, Shadows of Deception, will be available to download for free on Amazon Kindle September 3rd & 4th. If you love suspenseful or steamy romance, hot heroes, and terrifying villains, you will enjoy this novel.

  • Nobody’s Home is free September 5th & 6th. If you are a fan of highly rated horror, thrillers, or mysteries with an unexpected ending, you will love this short story. Or perhaps, you will despise me. We’ll find out when you leave that review!

  • The Black Shadow is available as a free ebook September 7th & 8th. This is a thrilling short story with a supernatural element that will keep you guessing until the end. The Black Shadow was also inspired by a terrifying experience I had as a young girl. The creep factor will shock you!
