Promotional Experimentation

I can think of many kinds of experimentation a person may undergo. There’s the kind that better humanity that are conducted in laboratories; there’s the kind that can lead to some wicked fun in college; and then there’s the kind that take place because you just don’t know what’s going to happen. This one falls under category three.

The Lost Girls has not had the kind of success I expected it to regarding sales. I’m very biased, but everybody who’s read it (and reported back to me) has claimed it’s a great story who’s only fault is that it leaves you aching to read more about the character(s). The cover art is exceptional, if I do say so myself, and even the blurb seems to be pretty exciting. Hmm, maybe I’ll revisit it and try to make it even more appealing. Anyhow, I digress. The fact is the sales are lacking on it, and that just doesn’t make sense. So the next stage is more promotion…

Free book alert! Yes, I’ve set up The Lost Girls via Createspace for a POD (print on demand) service and while you can technically order a print copy from Createspace or Amazon, I recommend the ebook version (mainly because it’s cheaper). However, the Free Book part comes from a Goodreads giveaway I’m conducting. I’ve secured five copies of The Lost Girls in print and plan on signing and mailing them out to the five winners. You can go to Goodreads and enter to win it there, but hurry because the giveaway ends on November 25th.

I’m thinking I may do an ebook giveaway for it as well here on my blog, but I need to figure out exactly how I plan on doing that, so stay tuned!

Here are the official links to cut down on confusion: Goodreads giveaway for The Lost Girls

    Good Idea. I have never tried a free giveaway, maybe I should. Luck with this.
