And all those other familiar action slogans…
I’m doing this because, at the moment, I want readers more than I want money. But act now, because I’m not at all sure how long I’ll feel that way.
The only thing I ask – since you’re getting such a deal – is that you write a review (I’m not asking for a rave, just an honest review) on Amazon and, if you’re a member, on Goodreads. Reviews – a variety of reviews – attract other readers and that’s what I’m after. And in truth, I’m pretty confident the book will satisfy most of the people who read it.
Another, less happy, thought:
I participate in something called Operation Book Drop, which sends me a list of emails for servicepeople in Iraq and Afghanistan so I can offer them free copies of my books to read. So I just sent out a ‘Mindbenders’ coupon to a list of maybe 150 soldiers – and immediately got nine ‘could not deliver’ messages in return. Sure, some of them are hopefully mis-spellings or folks that are no longer in the service – but, looking at the list, surely some of them just aren’t there to receive the email anymore. Whatever you think of these wars – I’m not a fan – it reminds you what these people are doing and risking out there.
