Exiting Kindle Select

Free May 2017

With the expiration date coming this month, I’ve decided to exit my Kindle Select option and go for a wider distribution. I haven’t used all my promo options with Select, so I am using the last four free days in an attempt to drum up interest before Book 3’s release in June.

Does this sort of thing work? I don’t know. I have used one free day via Select and I had close to 500 downloads–which is better than I’ve ever done. But free = $0. I don’t write to pay the bills, so for now I’m okay with that. I just want people to read the books and get some laughter out of the them. Today we’re going of the two-fer in honor of Book 3’s release and as an adios to Select. Only time will tell if this strategy worked. And I got some time, so why not?

Happy reading, y’all!
