Free Kindle Books (Reading Group)

Note that all share a common purpose – the downloading of FREE books. FYI: I belonged to them while with Biting Dog Pubs, because I had to promote my own free books to members of these groups. It’s a marketing ploy that obviously doesn’t work. The belief is that people will read a free book and if they like the writer they will 1. pay for the next book and 2. hopefully tell their friends. I’m sure it happens, but not enough. Now that I am an indie I have no need for these groups.

Am I saying it’s wrong to give books away? Of course not. There are reasons I’ll continue to do so. I have people – friends who get them, because they’re special. I don’t expect them to promote for me. I also will send them to other writers. Hell, I’ll send them to just about anyone who asks. I’m just not going to pimp a freebie to the world. If anyone wants something, they have to come to me.

Note: I feel safe being honest here. No one reads these damn things.
