This is just a quick note to let you know about a change in a previous strategy I had. You may recall a post a completed a while ago detailing the release strategy for my Blood Rage series. The plan was to have book 1 exclusive to the boxed set. The boxed set has 3 books:
Book 1 – Blood and Fear (a short story),
Book 2 – The Crimson Guild (a novella), and
Book 3 – Blood Rage (a novel).
My idea was to price the boxed set low enough that it was better value than buying books 2 and 3, and you would get the exclusive short story too.
Well, I have not had much luck with this strategy. While I have had sales on book 2 and 3, there were very few sales of the boxed set. I also think that book 2 and 3 sales are lower than they could be, because some readers wanted to read book 1 first, but could only get it by buying the boxed set. And who wants to take a chance on a 3 book boxed set by a new author, when they may not like the author’s style?
Because of this, I have re-thought my strategy and decided to try again. Blood and Fear is exclusive no more. I have decided that I will make book 1 free so that readers can take a ‘no risk’ chance on my fantasy writing. Hopefully, they will like the story and go on to read books 2 and 3.
The good news is that Blood and Fear is now free on most retail platforms. You can also get it for free from my website home page. Why not grab yourself a copy today?
I am writing this post to give you all a heads up on my latest book promo. I have my short horror story ‘Easy Prey’ on Kindle Unlimited (KU). Under the terms of KU the book is exclusive to Amazon. But don’t worry… if you don’t own a kindle, you can download the free app from your store. For those that do not subscribe to KU, I am making ‘Easy Prey’ free for 3 days commencing today, 1st of February 2018 (Pacific time).
Because it is only a short story it usually retails for under a dollar, so it isn’t a huge saving, but hey… free is free after all. And it gives you a chance to trial my writing without spending any cash. So why not grab yourself a copy and give me a go.
Still not convinced? Maybe this blurb will sway you:
Something sinister lurks around Shady Ridge. It’s places like this you can find easy prey. Mack Conway is a creep with an eye for the ladies. Life hasn’t exactly been kind to him. It could be better if he just played nice, but he ain’t nice… and he’s looking for trouble.
Please share this post with anyone you think may be interested in a copy, and of course, if you do grab yourself a copy and you enjoy the read, the best thank you any author can wish for is a review from a happy reader.
