Hi everyone, its Friday night again in this part of the world and I have a few moments to myself to sit back, have a beer or two and reflect on the last few weeks, and more importantly, my secret plan to become a best selling writer.
I snuck away early from work which gave me a head start on my weekend chores. This enables me to free up time over the weekend to work on the first and pretty rough draft of my labour of love which has now cracked the sixty-thousand-word mark.
These chores include mowing the lawn, vacuuming the house, putting the washing on, and preparing dinner for she who must be obeyed. I cleaned the kitchen and the bathrooms and did the ironing before I went to work. By completing these tasks I have created myself a small window of opportunity to formulate my next grand marketing scheme, before I receive further orders. The grand scheme which is going to turn me into a bestselling author and generate a six-figure income in no time at all.
In terms of marketing I’m doing all the right things, following the three step, five step, and twenty five step plans guaranteed to ensure success and wealth. Because I am so focused on these plans I am confident I will be able to convince she who must be obeyed I can give up the day job and focus on writing. Soon. Presently. Some time in the near future.
Back in the real world, I have reduced the price of the the kindle versions of all the books for sale on Amazon for the next week. The first three books in the series are now US$0.99 (Skid, The First Chronicle, The Second Coming, The Lifeboat,) and I have reduced the price of The Colonists to US$1.99. If you purchase any of these books it would be great if you could review them for me.
If people want to buy a box set of physical books off me from my Shopify site I’ll do a buy three books and get one free deal. These books will make fantastic stocking fillers for Christmas. You’ll have to PM me to take advantage of this deal.
It may seem odd to reduce the price on Amazon only, but this is the channel I really want people to use to purchase ebooks so the books can be reviewed which will encourage others to buy the books.
