Just a sneak peek into what’s to come tomorrow so you don’t miss out on this wonderful opportunity.

Emlyn Chand with Novel Publicity is testing the waters of giving away her first, and only so far, novel Farsighted. I’ve read it – loved it and now wonder how this marketing strategy will work for her.

Terrific Read!

See my review of this book right here!

Tomorrow I will take a look deeper into my skepticism of this and ask for your thoughts. Feel free to share them now as well.

Thanks for reading,

Sarah Butland

  1. Since offering my two available books (Precipice, and Turning Point) exclusively through KDP Select and participating in the 5-day free giveaway with each, I’ve sold almost more copies in the past week than I have since publication. Exposure, through offering your book for free, does work. BUT . . . you have to offer it within the right venue. Amazon is definitely the right venue.

    • Glad to hear your experience went well, Melissa. I do see a great value in offering books from a series for free – get them hooked to buy more – but I’m trying to determine if I make my short story collection free will help generate sales for my novel.

  2. Thanks for sharing the news about Farsighted’s free days, Sarah. You are a keeper–I don’t know what I mean by that, I just mean it whole-heartedly 😛

    I’ll blog about the results very soon. Probably next Wednesday!
