Do You Want to Sell Books? Start Giving Them Away

The title looks a little deceptive, but it really is true. If you want to sell your books, start giving them away! Today, I started offering one of my e-books, Tears in a Bottle, for free through Amazon Kindle Direct. Within an hour, 35 books had been downloaded! For me, a small-scale indie author, that number is huge for an hour's worth of sales!

KDP Select is one of the best tools any writer can use. It doesn't matter if you're a seasoned author or just getting started. Offering your books as a free download through Amazon Kindle Direct Publishing's Select program is genius for selling books!

Kudos for Amazon for coming up with such a program. Writers, take note. If you want to sell more books, start giving them away!

You still get a cut and your name as an author gets a wider audience. It's a win/win plan.

By the way, the photography on the cover of this e-book is also mine!

Go for it!
