I remember when my two kids were small, going to Costco was an adventure. They loved climbing around on the big stacks of toilet paper (which we were later told was a no-no! lol) and eating the samples they served there. I also loved the free food that kept the kids happy and occupied while I shopped. It was a win-win for everyone, including Costco because I always ended up buying at least one of the items we sampled.
Just like Costco, many authors love giving out freebies, too. Yes, we spend a lot of sweat and tears creating a story and its characters and we wouldn’t be able to sustain our writing jobs if we gave all our books away. But when we can offer a book for free, we’re happy to do so. Free books are how I met many of you here! I know that giving out these samples of my writing is a great way to meet the most important people in my author life—my readers!
What do you think of free books? How many of your favorite authors did you meet through a freebie of theirs? I’d love to hear your thoughts in the comments below!
