Time for a Freeby

Everyone is self isolating, if not outright quarantined right now. It get’s boring, even for those of us who can work from home.

Add into that, a whole bunch of people who lost their jobs and are trying to file for unemployment right now, and we could all use a break.

Reading is a good way to spend a few hours, and all authors would love to have you check out their wares. I don’t want anyone to accuse me of taking advantage, so I’m going to do a free promotion. Even folks who lost their jobs can take advantage of a freeby.

Don’t freak out on me just yet, because I set it up to run on Monday. This post is just so you can line up ahead of time, while practicing your social distancing skills. I’ll run out another post when it goes live.

I try to have a method to my madness. Yak Guy is an older title these days, and I never thought it got as much love as it could have. The reviews are all positive, but there just aren’t enough of them. Hopefully, you follow my logic. I’m not linking the cover, because the freeby trots out on Monday.

This is the one where I based the characters off the Fool’s Journey from the Tarot Deck. Yak Guy is The Fool who goes on the journey. He meets other Major Arcana characters along the way. Obviously, I had to weave in a few others, but it made for a fun way to tell a story. I was kind of proud of my Wheel of Fortune. (It’s an entire city with multiple choices of roads leading out.)

For today, you might want to give your yak an extra ration of oats, maybe use some saddle soap on your rigging. The journey begins Monday.

Lisa says he likes carrots, too.

  3. Boy, you’re right. This stay-at-home gets really old, and I have an awful feeling, it’s just starting. Good luck with The Yak!

  4. I think free books are almost always a good way to boost sales, and sometimes, reviews. It’s worked for me, especially with Book 1 of either series. It often follows that folks who pick it up free and enjoy it will buy the rest of the series, or will look at other books I have out. Hope it goes the same way for you.

    In the meantime, you are helping some of us poor schmucks who are stuck at home and looking for something new to read. I’d run right on over and get this one, myself, except it’s already on my TBR pile. But after reading your description above, I’m thinking I need to move it up today! Passing the word, Craig, and good luck.
