Hope you don’t mind – I need to ask for your help with a few things this week. Today, I wonder if you’d be good enough to help me spread the word about an AUTUMN: DAWN promotion.
I’m guessing most people who read this post will know how I started out. If not, here’s a very brief recap. I had a book published traditionally in 1996 – it sank without trace. When I finished my second novel – AUTUMN – I was determined not to let the same thing happen again. I decided that my mission was simply to get it in front of as many readers as possible. I gave the novel away, sharing more than half a million copies in no time at all. By chance, I managed to surf the crest of two simultaneous waves: the growing market for zombie fiction (which few other authors were writing), and the increasing interest in eBooks (particularly free eBooks, something even fewer folks were offering). It’s no exaggeration to say I owe my career to the decision to give AUTUMN away.
Fast forward twenty-plus years, and all this seems like old hat. But with the new AUTUMN trilogy complete, I decided to repeat the experiment. For the next week, AUTUMN: DAWN (HERBST: MORGENDÄMMERUNG in German) is free to download from all major eBook providers. I’m curious to see if the value of nothing is as high in 2023 as it was in 2001.
If you’ve not read the book, please help yourself to a copy. Whether you’ve read it or not, would you mind helping me share the free promotion? I’d really appreciate it if you’d share on Facebook or elsewhere, or retweet the Tweet below. Your support is very much appreciated. As I used to say in all my promo material back in 2001, please SPREAD THE INFECTION!
