Good morning, all! I am not used to being FREE. And since yesterday close to 1,000 downloads have gone out FREE! It is a strange experience, promoting your beloved work for NO MONEY AT ALL – when you are so used to standing in bookshops, chatting to folks who will happily pay for their summer read.
So why do offer a freebie at all – when actually you really would like to be paid for your work? Well, the advantage of being with a small publisher is that you work very closely with the team and you definitely have a voice – plus, of course, the fact that they chose your work for publication in the first place. The downside is that they don’t have the huge PR machine of the mass market behind them so it’s up to us all to let folks know that the Summertime stable has over 80 books of real merit poised for discovery by YOU!
So we offer our freebies in the hope that you love what you read and that you will want more. Plus it DOES pop us up in the charts. And how bonkers is it that last night I was on the same page as Louisa May Alcott? My English teacher would be so proud…
Sleeping People Lie is a Goodreads chart topper on Best Books To Read While Travelling. As I type, it is at #27 on Women’s Fiction and #34 in Contemporary Fiction on Amazon.com. It’s a love story with a dark edge, mystery woven in, plenty of twists and has great reviews. So what have you got to lose?
The link to download your FREE KINDLE FILE is below (UK readers please click on UK site). What would I like in return? Well, if you love what you read, I would love a review, but my novel is given with love and no expectation for return. XX
