First in Series
Happy Valentine’s Day! As a gift to you, I’m offering a copy of Permed to Death for FREE.
Yes, you heard me correctly. This is my first price reduction of this nature for the Bad Hair Day Mysteries. I hope to attract new readers to my series. With new covers on Hair Raiser and Murder by Manicure, hopefully I’ll gain new fans.
There’s always been controversy among authors about offering free books. Some say readers who pick up free reads or bargain books won’t buy at regular prices. Others swear that making their first in series permafree (permanently free) has helped gained readers and reviews.
I’ve tried 99 cents promotions, and while I sold more books than normal, the revenue did not meet my expenses. The risk is even higher with permafree because authors get no royalties for these books. We are gambling that readers will want to buy more books in the series. A BookBub deal would be a clincher, but I have not been able to get one. So, I’ll have to advertise in other ways. You can help by spreading the word to your friends.

As a reader, I have found many favorite new authors through their freebies. I’ve gone on to buy their entire series. I’ll discover them through daily newsletters such as BookBub, The Fussy Librarian, Freebooksy and Book Doggy. These allow you to try new authors without financial risk. It’s a great way to find your next great read. Subscriptions to readers are free and you can filter your genres.
Will you be my Valentine and download my book? Please share the link with friends and help spread the word. Happy Reading!
