Never say never: get Occasional Soulmates for free next weekend

To everyone who enjoys a good story, one that she will ponder for a long while after finishing the book: Next weekend, one of my fav authors is GIVING AWAY his most recent novel. You can get Occasional Soulmates for free next weekend! Of course, I would prefer that readers do what I did and buy the paperback version because it is so much more fun to read than an e-book. But, if you haven’t yet read Occasional Soulmates, take advantage of the free promotion next weekend. Read and fall in love with Sarah Phelan and Dylan Cakebread and follow them on their sometimes hilarious, sometimes heart-breaking journey. Then buy the paperbook because, you know, you’ll want that baby on your bookshelf.

WHAT THE HELL

3D cover

I know, I know. I said I’d never do it. Early in my self-publishing experiment, I declared (at least I think I did) that I’d never give my books away as a promotion. The very idea repelled me. I gagged at the notion that people would grab the thing by the hundreds for free but they wouldn’t pay the 99 cents I usually ask in a promo. Yet, it seems to be the case that self-publishing ebooks is almost dependent on the freebie.

What changed my mind, you ask? Well, for one thing, sales of Occasional Soulmates have been (sob sob) disappointing. My experience this time around has driven home the fact that you have to market constantly, you have to spend quite a bit of money, and you have to obsess over the selling of a book to give it any kind of life on the charts. Possibly I…

Final day for the Occasional Soulmates 99 cent countdown deal!

Snooze and you lose! Today is the last day to get Kevin Brennan’s Occasional Soulmates for only 99 cents! But if you’re really savvy, you’ll buy the paperback which allows you to have the Kindle version for free. Then you can give the paperback as a gift to your best friend and keep the Kindle version for yourself. A win-win!

WHAT THE HELL

Blue gorilla

That’s right. If you’ve been fence-sitting on this thing, today’s the day you have to act. Occasional Soulmates is 99 cents until midnight PST.

It’s been a successful promotion, but only thanks to EReader News Today. On its own, a Kindle Countdown Deal doesn’t attract much attention, it seems to me; you need an outside push to ensure that lots of eyeballs see it. Luckily ENT isn’t terribly expensive, like a lot of them, but it’s effective.

To ignite one last flash of interest, I’m reposting here Cinthia Ritchie’s interview with me earlier this week on her blog. Hope you like it. Tell your friends. And, as always, thanks for your support on social media throughout this promotion.

A Different Kind of Book Review: Occasional Soulmates by Kevin Brennan.

Dear Reader, here is another in my unplanned series of book reviews.  I hope you enjoy this commercial break.  Did you know that currently the ebook version of Occasional Soulmates by Kevin Brennan, the subject of this review, is available for just 99 cents.  If you've been on the fence about getting yourself a copy,… Continue reading A Different Kind of Book Review: Occasional Soulmates by Kevin Brennan.

Yo, heads up

At the risk of offending somebody: Here’s your chance to get Occasional Soulmates really really cheap! Now, I bought the paperback and, as Kevin notes in his post, his picture on the back cover was well worth the $$. But, seriously, folks, the novel is a great read and the Kindle ebook is definitely a steal (pun intended) at 99 cents. That said, the paperback is prettier and more fun to read than an ebook.

But, I know, I know, ebooks are more convenient so go ahead and buy the ebook version. Of course, if ebooks are more convenient, then that means you’ll have no excuse not to write a (5-star … no pressure here) book review. Really, please write a book review. Check out the ones already there for inspiration 🙂 Now, go and BUY the book. Have a nice day!

WHAT THE HELL

IMG_1217Just so you know… Mañana I’ll be starting a Kindle Countdown deal for Occasional Soulmates, wherein you and everyone you know or ever have known may purchase this lovely little ebook for a mere 99 cents. You knew it was coming. All self-publishers must resort to the 99 cent deal, or, even worse, the giveaway, and now is the first of (we don’t know how) many for OS.

Help propel this novel into the top umpty-thousand on the bestseller list. Grab your copy tomorrow!

Oh, and don’t forget to post a brief review too. I’m stuck at eight. Where reviews are concerned, eight is definitely not enough.

Don’t forget, if you’re a print lover, Occasional Soulmates is available as a paperback. It has my picture on the back. That alone is worth $9.99.

The deal runs from the 15th through the 21st. Spread the word.

Goodreads giveaway ends soon!

Don’t miss your opportunity to win a copy of Occasional Soulmates! Giveaway ends on November 5. My recommendation is that you buy this entertaining novel (which, by the way, happens to be based in my favorite city) NOW and then you don’t have to wait 🙂

WHAT THE HELL

Occasional Soulmates and Godzilla

Just a reminder that I’m running a Goodreads giveaway for Occasional Soulmates, but it ends on November 5, so now’s your chance to join the fun. If you haven’t purchased the book yet (and come on, you know you haven’t!), step up and put your name in the hat. You have a 1 in 30 shot at winning a copy.

But if you don’t win… you have to promise to buy the book when the giveaway is over.

And by the bye, if you have read the book, I’d dearly appreciate a brief review on Amazon. I’m holding at seven right now and hoping for ten before too long so it looks like more than just my family has read this puppy!

The giveaway ends in a week.
