a new twist to making money as a book promoter

IN THE PAST MANY BOOK PROMOTERS HAVE LISTED AUTHORS BOOKS WHEN THE AUTHOR GAVE THEM AWAY FOR FREE

 

THE PAYOFF CAME WHEN THE READER CLICKS ON THE LINK AND IS ADDED TO THE BOOK PROMOTERS CUSTOMERS, THUS ALLOWING A SMALL COMMISSION ON FUTURE SALES THROUGH THE AMAZON AFFILIATE PROGRAM. 

 

THE PROBLEM IS THAT NOW AMAZON WILL STOP THE COMMISSIONS UNLESS THE BOOK REVIEWER CAN MAINTAIN A CERTAIN LEVEL OF SALES TO FREE LINKS

 

THUS MAKING IT HARD TO PROMOTE FREE BOOKS AS IN THE PAST

 

A SOLUTION!

 

I HAVE A FREE INTRODUCTORY SHORT STORY TO TWO DIFFERENT SERIES I AM LAUNCHING

 

WHEN THE CUSTOMER GOES AND READS THE SHORT STORY THEY WILL HOPEFULLY LIKE IT AND PURCHASE THE BOOKS IN THE SERIES, THUS INCREASING THE RATIO OF SALES TO FREE CLICKS.

 

 

AS SUCH, I HOPE MY FRIENDS IN THE BOOK PROMOTIONAL SERVICES WILL FEATURE MY PERMANENTLY FREE BOOK BELOW ON THEIR SITES, ETC. 

THE MALAVIZIATI



THIS STORY GIVES LINKS TO TWO DIFFERENT FULL LENGTH SERIES WHICH ARE BELOW


DRONES


 

 

THE  SEX LOTTERY

Times have changed, but the flair will always be with us.

Being able to touch, to feel the story will always be the spark that drives the story forward


So the questions for many is how to capture the magic, the excitement of writing, and of reading also.

 

With the world turning digital more so every day, what will keep this magic alive?

HELLO MY FRIENDS, I HAVE UPDATES
It is hard to know where to start. I have converted all of my novels to both paperback and hardback, and a few to audio, with the rest being released soon. Learning the ropes to get my novels into book stores has been a wild ride, but they are now available in most stores around the world. Thanks to the Frankfurt Book Fair I was able to make the connections I needed.
I am launching two new series. Both are related. One is the Maliviziati Series and one is the Matalina Series. Both are described in a short story entitled THE MATALIVIATI

which is free on Smashwords and Goodreads. It is only 99 cents on Amazon.
The first novel in The Maliviziati Series is DRONES


 
 
 a story involving a drone attack on American soil. I am currently giving away five copies on Goodreads. See details here.  
The first in the Matalina Series is THE SEX LOTTERY

a story of a small town girl fighting off sinister men who have placed a lottery on who will have her on her 18th birthday. That is before Matalina, a modern day female warrior shows up.
I have also started SIR JOHN’S ARMY, a fan club with an additional goal of encouraging those who are educated but never read into discovering that joy. Sadly, only about 24% of those graduating from college ever read another novel 
As always anyone with a blog who wants to review one of my novels should contact me about getting a free copy. My e-mail is sirjohnnyray@gmail.com
I have added many new features on my blog you might be interested in. Crosspost is a really cool application that makes my work so much easier. When you go there you will see what I mean. My blog is www.sirjohn.us
I am approaching 100,000 followers on my personal twitter account where I am sirjohn_writer . If I can ever retweet anything for you, please let me know.
