I’ve heard of a few interesting ways authors here in Northern California are promoting their books. For example Robert Digitale made arrangements with our “local” bookstores where he donates $1 from each sale of his first book in The Horse Stalker series to a local school program and that $1 is matched by the bookstore. A doubled up donation for the kids when his book is purchased!
Ezra Barany is doing a “today only” promotion of his book The Torah Codes for only $0.99
in celebration of his birthday today. Here’s his promo:
Check out my friend Ezra’s
award-winning bestseller “The Torah Codes,” a fun thriller. For his birthday (Tues. Sept. 20th) he’s reducing the e-book price from $3.99 to $0.99. Today only! Send your
receipt to Ezra[at]TheTorahCodes[dot]com and you’ll be entered in a raffle to
win a $50 gift card to Amazon or Barnes & Noble, winner’s choice.
Sandy Baker gives away a pack of flower seeds with her Mrs. Feeny and The Grubby Garden picture book for kids. While it is written as fiction, there is a great deal of factual advice on gardening with kids. Here’s her link: http://www.sandybakerwriter.com/Home.html
