The Ebook Experiment
So I’m a big fan of JA Konrath. The man is smart. If he says something works when it comes to books, I’m not going to question him. I’ll usually give it a try. SO his latest recommendation is to use Amazon’s KDP Select. I have never used this before. But with the information he has recently given out, I’ve decided I’m going to do a little experiment. Yes, you heard me right. I’m going to exclusively publish a shortish story with KDP Select, set it for free, tell everyone and their brother, and then see what happens. Apparently this can work amazingly, or it can’t. Either way, my reason for doing this with a new story, is because I didn’t want to take any of my books out of the running on other sites. That’s isn’t nice to readers when they may not have a Kindle. A lot of my readers have Nooks and iPads.
So by doing this experiment, I hope to accomplish a few things:
1. Gaining more readers.
2. Getting readers excited. Everyone likes free stuff!
3. Boost sales. I hear that it can help your other books . (I’m one of those if it ain’t broke don’t fix it types. But this time, I’m willing to step out of my comfort zone with a new book by making it exclusively for Amazon.)
So here is to my new experiment! *Raises invisible glass for toast* I’m excited to see what happens!
