An Early #BlackFriday Deal on the Montana McKenna Boxed Set

Hi folks! Maddie James here. First off, full disclosure, this blog post is a test. I've discovered that my newsletter service can also deliver my blog posts to my newsletter subscribers.

So please forgive me this for this test, okay? I don't plan to bombard you with blog posts (promise!) and am truly curious how this will work.

Enough of that. Here is the deal I want to share!

Did you know? Some ways authors provide #Free ebooks

Sometimes authors price books temporarily free, such as a flash sale or free promotion. Other times, authors will permanently mark books for free. Most of the time perma-free books are used to drive sales to other books. Generally, free ebooks are series starters or are books used as reader magnets (for example, book hooks to capture the reader's attention and move them toward the author's backlist).

There are various ways to offer books for free. Authors may use platforms like bookfunnelor instafreebie, and join in with other authors for multi-author free promotions. Or, those same platforms can be used for authors to leverage individually for their own personal promotions and giveaways.

Uploading free ebooks to retailers sites, so that the books are available alongside the paid backlist, is another way. Readers can find free ebooks on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, iBooks, and Kobo sites, among others.

Authors may provide complete novels for free, or sometimes only a sample of…
There has been a lot of discussion in writer's groups and among readers lately about book pricing, sales, free books, and the devaluation of an author's work.

Many authors worry about devaluing our work by cutting prices and under-pricing, and feel 99 cent and free books have no place in the marketplace.
I've heard readers say that when they see these low prices and free books, they wonder if the book is priced as such, because we, the author's, think it is an inferior book. One reader shared that she never buys 99 cent or downloads free books, because of that reason.
Others have shared that they get to know an author's habits about deep discounting and simply wait to buy a book until it goes on sale.
So, I'm posting my pricing guidelines, or how I price my books, and why below. Feel free to share your thoughts about pricing in the comments below, if you like.
