Did somebody say Free?

Grimbold Books has gone cra-azy again, offering one of its titles for free… and this time it’s… it’s… MINE!

Giveaway BookYou read that right, HEALER’S TOUCH (digital editions) is once again FREE for a limited time (February).

Where can you get this FREE book from? All the usual places.

To be honest, I think the most helpful place to get it from is Amazon US (‘go the monopoly,’ she says with absolutely no enthusiasm whatsoever) because it would be awesome to get into the top 100 free books on there… maybe even the top 50… top 10? Maybe…

But you can also go to:

Otherwise… I guess I had better get back to whippin’ my muse into action on the next book.

On that, I feel the re-write is going well. Still question marks over my first chapter, but I have two options available to resolve that, so it’s well fixable. The rest… well, I’m getting more and more excited, which is a good thing after several months of “I can’t do this! I suck! Apparently I can write, but I just can’t do story! I suck! I suck! I suck!”

Free! on a Goodreads Giveaway

Share and share alike they say. So I guess it’s my turn to share my experiences of a Goodreads Giveaway, just in case it helps those who come after me…

Well, first things first. Before I ran my giveaway, I checked out this page. It gives a nice blow-by-blow run down of giveaway results, showing you how different blurb styles and run times can affect the outcome of a giveaway. Reading this page can help you decide the ideal length of giveaway for you, and to write the most successful giveaway plug you can (e.g. Rather than the back-cover copy – which people can find easily enough – include reviews!).

I would like to add one caveat: Giveaway entries do not equal eventual sales, nor do additions to Goodreads shelves. While I was well aware of this, I was still surprised by other aspects of the giveaway.

If you’ve ever entered a Goodreads giveaway, you’ll know that when you do, there is a checkbox, already ticked, to add the book to your to-read list. Great. If you’re hoping to win a free copy then presumably you want to read the book! Well, yes, perhaps…

Check out my final numbers to see what you think:
