Labor Day Weekend Sale

I am determined to learn marketing this fall, so my first experiment is to play with pricing on the e-book. For this Labor Day weekend, I'd like for you to have the fruit of my labor for only 99 cents! 

I hope Bound reaches many new readers at this low price. Please spread the word. If the results are spectacular, I might even share them :)

The e-book is also now available on other platforms besides Amazon thanks to Draft2Digital. I've changed the price on all the platforms through Sept. 3rd. I'm not quite sure how to reach people who are on all these other platforms. But going wide is the first step. I have thought about joining KindleUnlimited but they want exclusivity. I'm a little leery of putting all my eggs in one basket (okay, I know it's only one small egg, but still).

I made the advertisement using I don't know if I'll be doing paid advertising any time soon. I still haven't recouped the cost of hiring a professional designer. Still, given I'm in this for the long haul, it's a most worthwhile investment. Here's what James Egan, a guest judge, on the Book Designer said about the cover: A nice straightforward approach. I like how the lines of the title font mimic the lines of the illustration. A most educational website both on self-publishing and book design.

I hope you all take a rest from your labors and enjoy the holiday.

I'll tell my friends. :) Good work on the advertisement graphic; that would be quite a learning curve for me.

Thank you Faith. I'd rather do word art like you though...I'm going to try.

I meant to complement bound on the cover design as well as the content. It is up there with the best.

Your cover is outstanding. Nice ad. Book Designer is an excellent site, too.

Thank you Mirka and Barb. I'm discovering so many new things, it's like a crash course in book publishing.
