IF Comics staff has been researching eBook marketing, sales results for other indie authors, and various other outlets for getting our work out to the public. With Myke working on a sequel to The Teddy Bear Conspiracies and Anthony just starting to illustrate the last Terry Freedom story, The B.U.C.K.S. Stop Here, we have been wanting to know what you, the fans, think of our work so far. We’ve run a few promotions in the last few months ranging from free download days to price drops for various holidays. Several hundred fans out there have been downloading our books, which is what we like to see, but it all seems meaningless without feedback. NO ONE IS LEAVING FEEDBACK! (tears welling up) Do you like the work? Should we not quit our day jobs? (we weren’t really planning to) Is the work that we are producing even worth people’s time and effort to check out?
So, in order to hopefully gain some feedback, we would like to offer to all you reviewers and fans of science fiction, young adult, teen adventure to read The Teddy Bear Conspiracies for FREE (ebook normally priced at $2.99, trade paper $19, hard cover $25) from now until APRIL 1ST, 2014! BUT, only if YOU want to. Contact us via the private messaging system here on WordPress, a private message on our Facebook page or send us an email message to: firstname.lastname@example.org to receive a FREE copy of The Teddy Bear Conspiracies (mobi or epub fomat) as long as you write us a short review on Amazon.com at some point in the next two months. We don’t want a bunch of five star rating for no reason! We want organic and honest reviews on this story. If you don’t want to post on Amazon, post a response on our Facebook page. Better yet, have a blog you do? We would love to promote your blog IF you write a review about the book. Win/Win for both parties. We’re just looking for some feedback and we would be willing to reciprocate! Anthony loves reading new stuff (you should see how fast he reads books) and would be willing to write a review in return. Any takers? Let us know!
(Next blog will feature news about the next publication Anthony is working on: a re-release of The Magic Press written by Myke and illustrated by Anthony for e-comic and possible dead tree version for the Spring of 2014.)
We hope to hear from book fans soon!
