I’m in Week 3 of our self-imposed lockdown, traveling outside the home only for groceries and medications.

Even for an introvert like me, it’s been difficult. I miss the occasional dinner out, game nights across the street, and impromptu chats in the cul-de-sac. For y’all, I’m sure it’s the same, or worse if you’re more extroverted, as you struggle with being cut off from your usual activities whilst being faced with the new requirements that come with having everyone at home 24×7.

There’s not much I can do for you directly, but what I can do is this: I can try to help you pass the time and stay the F*** home.

To that end, I am offering my books for free on Kindle. You don’t need the reader; you just need the app. It’s available for free, for PC, Mac, and all smart phones.

The first two titles (below) will be free this Wednesday thru Sunday (March 25–29). Other titles will be offered free-of-charge at future dates. My intention is to roll through all of my titles, switching between them every two weeks or so.

Feel free to share this information with your friends and family.

Stack of BooksYesterday’s promotional campaign–offering Unraveling Time free of charge for an entire weekend– came under the heading of “It couldn’t hurt.” I thought it might get my book in front of a couple of new readers. It did, but it did more than that. There are secondary effects.

Unraveling Time is a time-travel/historical/adventure/romance (yep…it is) and as such, I listed it in two sub-sub-genres: Historical fantasy and Time Travel Romance (didn’t know there was a Time Travel Romance sub-sub-genre, did you?) Well, this morning, due to the free copies that people have downloaded, Unraveling Time is in the Top Ten for its genres. Now, I grant you, those are rather specific sub-sub-genres, but here’s the thing. At Amazon, there are people who subscribe to the RSS feed of top sellers in those genres. There is even an RSS feed for top free books in those genres. And that, my friends, is targeting your demographic.

Of course, it’s a free promotion, and I’m not making a dime off it, but as folks in another business say: The first taste is free.

Already, I’ve had emails from people thanking me for the free book, telling me that they’ve started reading it already and are enjoying it, and one email from a brand-new reader just to tell me that she really loved a line from the book (“…and the sand
beneath him that smelled of ancient anger.”)

I can’t tell you how big my grin was when I read that.

So, if you some friend or colleague or even just a blogger like me says, Here’s a book for free, go get it. Even if you don’t read it, you’ll help that person’s book reach new readers and that is, essentially, what most of us are striving for.
