I am a man who eats his own dog food. That is, I do what I talk about. Recently I told a friend that a great way to promote your self published kindle book is to give away the first few chapters of your book free.
He asked me, "So can I download one of yours then?" Cue me changing the subject.
Luckily I am ugly enough to know when I am being a hypocrite so I spent this morning putting the first 6 chapters of my kindle book; Mr Personal Development into a PDF that you can get here.
Why do this? Well clearly the idea is that you read the chapters and have to finish the story by purchasing the book. Does it actually work?
Yes it does. I have had varying degrees of success with.
Give it a go and see how you get on. TIP - Put a link to the book in the freebie or they won't know where to go to purchase.
Let me know how you get on.
