, I finally received the codes for a free download of my new audiobook from Audible. I really had to chase them down. I love Audible but they work on their schedule not mine.
I have a few codes left for my first audiobook, Broken Branches. Authors give out freebies with the hope that the person receiving it will go on to write a review on Amazon and Goodreads. Authors live for reviews. How else are we going to know if our readers, or listeners liked their hard work. So far I have received one review for the audio version of Broken Branches. It was a pretty good review if I do say so myself. The story was very well received and only a little constructive criticism of the narrator. We will get better thanks to that review.
I have twenty-five codes to give away in exchange for a review of book two in the Green Lady series, Whispers in Time.
Now is a great time to try an audiobook. I'll be having book three in series, Hidden Assets, made into an audiobook before Christmas, fingers crossed.
By the way my children's book, Sailing Away to Nod, won a Silver medal in the Florida Authors and Publishers Presidents awards in Orlando this month.
Sailing Away to Nod would make a great Christmas present for a young child. What kid could resist a giant, a dwarf and princess. It's available in hardcover and as a Kindle.
Who knew young children would be using Kindles? I sure didn't.
If you have written a book and published in paperback you really should consider doing a Kindle as well. If you use KDP, which is part of Amazon ( isn't everything) you can sign up for kindle select and offer your kindle for free, up to five days in any three month period. I can hear you ask how does that benefit me? You will be paid for every page that is read from the Kindle Global fund which has millions to give to authors.
Free does work. It gets your name out there and your books read. I have a small following for my Green Lady Inn series. I'm working on book four now, The Spell Box. As always I just have to sit my butt in the chair and finish it. I'm three quarters of the way done on the first draft. You can read reviews of my books on Amazon. I hope they will tempt you to try one.
If you would like a code for book one, Broken Branches, or book two, Whispers in Time, please send me an email - firstname.lastname@example.org. I'd love to hear from you.
