Why Do Authors Make Their Books FREE?

This question pops often in forums… Here are the answers often posted…

 

  • Because they don’t know any better
  • To maximize downloads because they don’t care about money
  • Advisers telling newbies giveaways are the best career decision
  • People think the author is begging for sales
  • Because the books are worthless
  • I never price any of my books for free

FACT: None of these answers are helpful and some are out right lies by omission. Take the last on the list. The author who never prices books for free–can’t! Nope. That author is under contract and has NO control over the price of his/her books. I checked. And all are sucking mud to China in stats…perhaps selling one or two a year.

Jackie Weger

A South Alabama native, Jackie Weger has been writing novels off and on for thirty years. She enjoys destination travel–going to new and strange places, meeting the natives, learning their customs, their foods, how they survive good  times and bad. She lived part of one winter with trappers in the Louisiana Swamps, volunteered at a sister of Mercy Mission in Colon, Panama–and had one of the most interesting conversations in her life with an old man and his dog as they sat on a bench waiting for a train in the Village of Versailles. Jackie loves books, coffee, tea, cats, gossip and all things Southern.

The Perils of Pauline vs Indie Authorship

Jackie Weger

Jackie Weger

Do you remember silent films? And poor Pauline tied to the railroad tracks, a huge black locomotive chugging toward her, the train whistle blasting and the music thundering? I forget the hero who always rescued Pauline… I liken digital publishing to the Perils of  Pauline–except  we don’t have a lovely hero…we have to rescue ourselves when our careers or books are on the edge of a cliff on in front of that dang train bearing disaster upon us. I just this week rescued No Perfect Secret  and a blot on my career within minutes of a train wreck.

Fantasy/Sci-Fi/Paranormal Book Tour – Christine Gabriel 10/9

Meet the eBook Your Escape Authors

Christine Gabriel
Christine Gabriel, a diehard Buckeye fan, grew up in the small farming community of Monroeville, Ohio where she spent much of her time writing imaginative stories. She has spent the last ten years managing a financial institution in Norwalk, Ohio in which she’s learned that compassion and love are her greatest gifts to give to others.
She has a small tribe of children who have become her biggest fans and most honest critics. She’s an avid animal lover and has been known to bring home a stray to cuddle with her while she writes. She’s also deathly afraid of earthworms and will cross the street in order to avoid one on the sidewalk. She loves vanilla coffee and can’t begin her morning without it, even knowing that doing so has consequential effects that could potentially cause a Zombie Apocalypse.
Christine’s most important view is that her readers are able to escape out of their realities and enjoy a little piece of her imagination. She holds each one of her readers close to her heart and loves them as if they were one her dearest friends. She currently resides in Norwalk, Ohio where she’s working on Crimson Moon, Book Two of The Crimson Chronicles series.

THE RELUCTANT HERO 99¢ June 28 – July 1

The Reluctant Hero

Parnell Stillman ~ Pilot

Let me introduce you to Parnell Stillman, ace pilot and man to the bone in a lackadaisical kind of way. He has a quirky sense of independence, a poor man’s sense of budget and a manner of dress that would drive a mother crazy. You know that kind of man I mean. Every motorized machine he owns is pristine, but his socks don’t match. 

Five Stars! If you…are a Humphrey Bogart/African Queen fan or an Indiana Jones/Raiders of the Lost Ark fan, you will love this book.  ~  A. Burroughs on Amazon.

Parnell Stillman, ace pilot is man to the bone in a lackadaisical kind of way.  He has the ability to fly through anything except solid mountain.  He lives alone because people are not to be trusted, especially women. Flying is his high road until one sleet-filled morning–it isn’t. Mischance forces his plane down in a frozen wilderness. He can survive, but his live cargo is another matter—an annoying social worker and five orphans—the most irksome freight he’s ever hauled in his life.
