Making Readers Great Again!

You know what bums me out? I buy a book for $4.99, and the NEXT day I see the same book for FREE or $2.99 or some other price that is lower than I paid. That’s terrible, isn’t it? I feel like I’ve been cheated.

Okay, I’m a writer. I write lots of stuff, action/adventure novels, contemporary novels, short stores, etc. It’s what I do. And I love writing. It’s the hardest work I’ve ever done, but I really enjoy providing some entertainment for readers. But, that’s just the half of it. Writing is also a business. And just like the furniture store that offers your favorite chair on Black Friday for $150, when it usually sells for $300, writers sometimes have to do a similar thing.

It’s called “promotion.” So, currently ALL my major novels are on SALE for $0.99 (ninety-nine cents) through January 20th. No, I don’t make any money on those sales, but what it does, is make the work available to those who haven’t read my novels, or those who have read some but want more.

If you’ve recently bought one of those books (at a higher price) you deserve a little consolation prize. Just send me an email at john@johnbeckmanbooks.com Tell me w hat you bought, and I will send you a FREE download of “Seven Stories for Seven Nights (plus one)” a $2.00 value at no cost to you. It’s a great collection of NINE short stories, each one with a surprise ending. I will put your email address on file, and next time I have a promo, such as the one now in progress, I can alert you so that you can take advantage of it, if you care to, and save a few bucks. I promise to keep your email address private, just between you and me, and I will not “sell” it to anyone who might spam your inbox with scams. I hate when somebody does that to me, don’t you? I want to keep my readers happy, and you deserve to know ahead of all others when I have a new book coming out, or a promotion coming up. And thanks for your support.
