Thanks so much for the opportunity to guest post for you, Erin!!

Comment by Erin Casey yesterday

Susan Foster wrote this week's featured guest post on MyWritersConnection.com. She shares the lessons she had to learn to finally finish her book. If you've started and stopped writing a book, her spot-on advice may help you find your way to "The End." Please stop by and leave her a comment.

I think it helps you get a "jump start"--some people will download it because it's free.  By putting out some marketing that it's free and you'd appreciate some reviews, you can also get those maybe a little easier.  Any help--friends, relatives, etc.  I think you can have 4 days free, so you might want to split those up, or not.  I agree--marketing it is the hardest part.  I'm trying to figure out that now.  You have a website where you are featuring it right?  Maybe offering a couple of "freebies" associated with the book?  If you want me to send you some ideas, just let me know (susancfoster@bellsouth.net)

I have just published my first Amazon/Kindle e-book, "Vital Women." I was wondering if there is any real value in offering free days? Does this really help to get more reviews on the book? If so, how long do authors usually make there book free? Writing was the easy part. Marketing is going to be my greatest challenge.

Thanks, Alan.  I did mine free on Amazon for 4 days which was the max they allowed.  I understand after 90 days I can do a couple of days at 99 cents?

Hi Mike, my website is at www.TheIronJen.com. This might actually make a great discussion too as sometimes the answers can get lost in the comment wall. I noticed you were from Orange Beach, AL.  I was there just last fall as a keynote speaker...what a gorgeous place to live. Best wishes on your quest for narrowing down your niche.

Comment by Alan West on Monday

Talking about giving your book away for free I wanted to share this with everyone as some inspiration as to WHY you might want to give your book away for free, even for a short period of time.  Hope this brings some insight to the discussion.

For all of us talking about marketing a book, here is something I came across I thought might be helpful to the group by Tim Grahl:

Good question, Vitalis, which is why I asked Camilla, who seems to be scoring high in the rankings.  Some ideas I've read about are guest blogging for large sites and creating a lead page/opt in magnet to your book on your website, with some "freebies" associated with your book.  I've done that and am working on the guest blogging.  My problem is who do I market it to?  Most people market it on FB but my readers don't tend to hang out there.

Comment by Vitalis Essala on April 19, 2015 at 1:51pm

I can see that these ladies have the ball rolling. Writing can be exhausting. My first book is now forgotten after less than two months. I am now writing another one and it's tiring. I happen to wonder how to market a book out here. You've said a lot about it but any specific thought?
