On August 12, 2016, Kevin Brennan visited Reading Recommendations to tell us of a new novel and a new way of publishing: Kevin Brennan – update on a new novel and introducing a new way of publishing!
Now he’s back with the news that Fascination is available to purchase and download as an eBook from Amazon.
¡Fascination is live on Amazon!
Yesterday, with no fanfare whatsoever, I published Fascination on Amazon.
I know. Unexpected, right?
You can probably guess why I did it. Two main reasons: One, that after an initial blast of sales to, pretty much (no, exclusively), people who read this blog, I couldn’t give away a copy. There was no follow-up, no word of mouth, and though a number of potential readers expressed interest via comments on reviews of the book on other blogs, none of them pulled the trigger. Two, aside from the blog and Twitter, there’s no way to market the thing. I knew this going in, of course, but I’d hoped that Janey would tell Jenny and Jenny would buy it and then tell Jackie, who’d buy it herself and then tell Jill. It’s #guerrillapublishing, right? The word spreads and strangers start showing up. Six degrees of separation.
Just didn’t happen.
In the same vein, there’s also no way to attract new reviews, especially reviews by people I don’t know.
It was only after I found out that my mother and sister still couldn’t get the PDF onto their Nooks that I accepted (heavy sigh) that #guerrillapublishing has failed.
At least here. Now. With this book.
Where to purchase:
Congratulations, Kevin! And best of luck with the eBook version of Fascination!!
