View Full Version : free books?

11-11-2004, 01:49 AM
I'm just curious whether anyone has attempted to give out free copies of their book(s) and whether or not it helped or increased sales or anything at all. I'm not published (yet, hopefully), but I'm just trying to get some kind of vague plan for promoting my works if they ever get published.

It depends on what you are trying to accomplish... what were you thinking?
If you'd like to get reviews yes, you're going to give away books. And if you'd like a favor, e.g. you'd send a free book to your local radio station and ask to be a guest or if you'd really like a nonbookstore to carry your books, they'll want to take a look at it first.

Did that help?
