As you probably know from my last few posts I’m preparing a marketing push for my novel A Time and a Place. Cuz selling books is every bit as demanding as writing them, and (as a friend of mine said recently) they don’t sell themselves.
Over the next couple of weeks A Time and a Place will be featured in the following:
- A BookBub Featured Deal. (BookBub will be doing the heavy lifting here, placing A Time and a Place in front of 1,790,000 potential readers)
- A Manybooks Newsletter Promotion
- On Sept 11th I will be a Manybooks Author of the Day
- A Read Freely newsletter promotion
- An eBookSoda promotion
- The Fussy Librarian newsletter promotion
- A Reading Deals newsletter promotion
And possibly a couple of others yet to be confirmed.
My goals are simple. I’d like to generate awareness of the book, and I’d like to (at the very least) break even on the promotional costs.
I’d also like to ask for your help.
- If you have ever considered purchasing a copy of A Time and a Place, now is the time to do so. The e-book is already available at its promotional price of 99 cents for a limited time. Every sale will help push A Time and a Place up the sales rankings.
- If you have read A Time and a Place and enjoyed it, but haven’t yet rated it anywhere, doing so would be a great help. Goodreads is a great place to do so, but you can also rate it wherever you bought it, whether it be Amazon, Kobo, Barnes & Noble, Audible, or where ever.
- If you have read A Time and a Place and enjoyed it but haven’t yet reviewed it, even just a couple of lines would also help.
- Finally, you can help by promoting A Time and a Place with me on social media. Simply copy and paste the following universal link to your Twitter or Instagram or Facebook feeds and let people know about the book: https://books2read.com/u/4AKXoe
You’re also welcome to simply sit back and watch as this all unfolds. A while back I reported on how well the book is doing. I’ll also report the results of this campaign, with brutal honesty. It promises to be at the very least educational.
I still want the elevator pitch ^^
Here’s the super short version: Barnabus J. Wildebear must rescue his 15 year old nephew when the boy is recruited by an enigmatic alien to fight in a war halfway across the galaxy. Forced to evade armies, survive telepathic assaults, and inhabit the minds of alien beings, Wildebear will come to question the nature of free will and his own sanity. But he cannot fail. Doing so would mean failing not only his nephew and humanity, but Wildebear himself.
