NEW!!! ‘First Sentence Fridays’ week 3… free advertising for your book!

30 Dec

Hello everyone. Earlier this month, I came up with a new idea… hoorah! It’s free promotion for all of you with books for sale (or free); eBooks, paperbacks, it doesn’t matter which. And it can be for an individual short story / poem, story / poetry collection, novel or even non-fiction or script / comic book!

It runs every Friday (before the 100-word competition results on the second Friday of the month) and 6-word FFFs on the last Friday of the month), and somewhere where you can put the first sentence of your book (no more than 20 words) and one sale link in the comments section. As an example, one of mine would be…

hitman-sam-cover-front-smallClick, click, click.
(which leads to the book pictured right)

So put yours in the comments section of this post (below). Don’t put anything else. No title, no comments. Don’t worry if it doesn’t appear straight away. If you’ve not commented on this site before, I will have to approve it. I’ll be as quick as I can. And I’ll be editing ones that are more than one sentence / link.

The whole point of this exercise is to intrigue my visitors. It doesn’t matter which link you put in as long as it goes directly to somewhere where the reader can buy / download your book, i.e. not to your website’s home page where they then have to go looking for how to find out more / buy your book. If you want to contact me then you can certainly email me if you have any questions.

This will be a weekly feature so if you have more than one book, choose a different one each week. So one sentence (even if it’s one word!) / one link per author per post (and please don’t repeat the same book more than once per month). If the Friday’s been and gone, don’t worry… you can still add the details as a comment until the next post goes up the following Friday and becomes the lead post. When it’s gone, you can still find the link on the First Sentence Fridays page. OK, off you go.

READERS: to find the books listed here when viewing this post on the main blog page, click on the ‘Comments’ bottom right of the post. And you can find the previous links on the First Sentence Fridays page.
