I am a reader first and a writer second. As a reader, one thing I can not stand is when I follow an author I adore and am constantly bombarded with “Buy My Book!” spam. It makes me want to scream into the computer, “I already bought your book! That’s why I’m following you!”
Before I come off too pious, I must admit – I have fallen into this author trap. When it came time for me to put on my own marketing cap, I found myself quickly inundating my Twitter, Instagram and Facebook pages with “Look at my book! Buy my book! Have you read my book? Look who’s reading my book! Check out this review of my book! my book…my book…MY BOOK!!!!!”
I instantly hated myself.
And I don’t want to hate myself.
So, my friends, I have come to the realization that if you are reading this it is because you like me or one of my books. I don’t need to harass you to buy more of my work. Instead, I want to share with you some awesome books by awesome authors. I contacted a couple of indie authors and asked if they’d be interested in a book exchange. I’ve collected dozens of books – paperbacks and ebooks – and will be giving them away for free via Giveaways!
This is my way of saying THANK YOU for your support.
I really hope you win!
