You never know what’s going to happen when you give your e-book away. But within ten minutes of reducing my price on Smashwords from 75% off to FREE during “Read an EBook Week,” I’d made a “sale”…and a half-hour later I received an e-mail from the buyer! He hadn’t quite read my “magnum opus” yet (!), but he’d already posted a flattering blurb on his blog under the title “2018 Overlooked Ebook Gems for $1 or Less on Smashwords.” You can see the post here, and I’ve provided a screen shot of his blurb below. The blogger is Robert Nagle and he’s not just a writer and a fan of literature, but a producer and promoter of e-books in this brave new world of digital content. I appreciated his post and hope to work more with people like this to get our books and businesses noticed.
Be sure to go to Nagle’s blog to see what other e-books he recommended, as well as his other posts and essays on a range of subjects: http://www.imaginaryplanet.net/weblogs/idiotprogrammer/
