It’s April which means that RADIO is 1 year old. As the first portion of the festivities, I’ve decided to give gifts rather than get them. From today, April 23rd until Tuesday April 27th, the kindle version of RADIO will be absolutely free.
It’s been one wild first year for RADIO. From the lows of launching during a pandemic to the highs of becoming an SPFBO semi-finalist, a whole lot has happened to and for my weird little book. The best aspect of this first year has been the overwhelmingly positive reaction from readers. It’s my sincere hope that this free promotion will help get RADIO into the hands of more readers who will love it just as much.
Be sure not to let your guard down after this free promotion is over. There may or may not be a tangible, physical … something happening in May to celebrate the one year anniversary of the launch of RADIO in paperback.
And maybe something else in June. Maybe.
If you’d like a way to show your support for RADIO and myself, honest reviews on any platform you choose are always appreciated, as are follows on Twitter or Instagram. You could also check out my new podcast The Indie Pub available on most podcast platforms as well as YouTube. It has its own Twitter and would love some new followers too.
Stay tuned for more book birthday shenanigans and thanks for all the support over this last year. Here’s to an excellent second year of publication
With a little help from my amazing editor Amanda Spedding, the second free copy of RADIO to hit the little free library circuit is now up for grabs. For those in the Sydney, Australia area, head on over to the Street Library on Bardwell Road near the Charles Daly Reserve in Bardwell Park. This is great opportunity for Sydneysiders to have a go at RADIO and, if interested, help out with the #WheresRADIO campaign.
The steps are simple.
- Give RADIO a read
- Consider leaving an honest review on whatever bookish site you prefer
- Take your copy of RADIO to any new free book location. If you can’t find one, then it can just go back where you found it.
- Either way, take a picture of that location then post the location and picture on Twitter or Instagram. Be sure to tag me @jrushingwrites and use the hashtag #WheresRADIO and I’ll repost the books new location along with a big thank you.
Lots of authors have book sales in December as the holiday gift season rages on. Physical books make great gifts after all. Ebooks on the other hand are a little bit trickier to give. That’s why I decided to wait and have a post-holiday Kindle sale for anyone interested in discovering the darker side of 1920’s Paris with RADIO.
For the entire month of January, RADIO will be discounted to $1.99 in the USA, Canada, and Australia and will have similar discounts across all Kindle marketplaces.
If mind control, the gods of old, opium and jazz, suit your fancy, why not break out that shiny new gift card and treat yourself to your own copy of RADIO. There’s never been a better time to buy.
