Last year, I did an event similar to Trick-or-Treat Reads called New Year, New Reads. It was a 99cent ebook sale aimed at getting people to spend their gift cards they received for Christmas. It was a fun event, but this year, I didn't have time for it. I also forgot and when Tui Snider asked me about it, I realized I was woefully underprepared to host it again. She kindly offered to take it over and host it at Story Dam.
The gist of the event is authors price their books at 99cents and readers hop around and take advantage of the deals. All of December, I had my books on sale, so I joined because what's a few more days at 99cents? Just know, you have until January 3rd to get in on this deal. Then the price jumps back up.
I hope you enjoy your goodies. Don't forget to see what other authors are offering for sale today. Happy New Year!
Apparently, the way to tell if you have an interesting start to your book is to add "And then the murders began." to the first line. I saw a few authors trying it out, and since it sounded fun, I figured why not give it a shot with my stories.
It is said vampires forget their human lives and then the murders began.
The funeral had the look of a cocktail party and then the murders began.
I dunno about you, but I'm amused. I think Snapshots is my favorite. Being Human's is actually true. Vampires forget their humans lives and start killing. Over all, I think all of mine make sense.
Have you tried this with your writing or a favorite book? I'm curious to the results, so share them in the comments. A good laugh is always welcomed.
It's Read an eBook Week. Each year, tens of thousands of Smashwords authors, publishers and readers participate in this global ebook celebration which offers FREE and deep-discounted ebooks. I figured I should do some shameless promo for my books that I enrolled. Marketing, I know what I'm doing, totes. >.>
Being Human and Snapshots are both 50% off using code RAE50 until March 11th.
Since this post is kind of short, I figured I'd give a shout out to some other writers who are participating. L.G. Keltner has her books for free and I highly recommend her Self-Help 101 series. Marie Landry has two of her novels enrolled at 50% off. Jessica Sankiewicz has one of her books at 50% off.
