Digital Book Day!

Shameless-ful self-promotion follows…

Digital Book Day

I’m putting The Valkyrie Project up for free as part of the Digital Book Day organized by CJ Lyons.

I know that I’m going to download at least a few of the books that are already being advertised on there, and since I have a book that I can give away for limited periods of time (at least until I put out the second one and get them both into other eBook markets), I figured I could submit and promote (for what little it’s worth).

So, from July 13th until the 15th (2014), The Valkyrie Project will be free on Amazon. Tell your friends! And tell them about Digital Book Day too… an easy way to jump start an eBook collection or find some new indie/underground authors.

Some call the ability to publish digital without any sort of corporate representation (of any size) the “eBook revolution”, so it is very fitting that this first Digital Book Day coincides with France’s Bastille Day. Even more so since I will be celebrating this Bastille Day in France! #terriblehumblebrag

No go forth and download!

  1. Extremely interesting. I never actually heard of the site however I will be sure to check it out. It is great that you are giving away your book. I shall check it out.

  2. Hi Nels

    I checked out your book on Amazon – looks great! If you don’t mind me asking, how difficult did you find the self-publishing process? How time consuming, how hard was it, etc? I could probably ask questions about it all day, but mostly, I’m just curious as I hope to do this myself one day.

    Thanks for sharing your work with the world for free!

    • BSB – The self-publishing process (especially at Amazon) is pretty drop dead simple. Of course, you could argue about formatting the ebook to look perfect, but for a prose book of fiction, unless the formatting is totally wonky, I don’t think your average reader is going to notice. As long as you have MS Word, Amazon’s converter does a good job of creating a nice ebook for you.

      The most time consuming part (besides writing the book) was the cover since I did it myself. I’m seriously considering hiring that out for my next book because while I think I did a decent job with the cover, it’s not outstanding for the amount of time that I put into it.

      Really, once you have a quality product, getting pushed to stores (Amazon, B&N, Kobo) is really easy. I’ve heard that going direct to iTunes is a pain in the butt, but I think Smashwords can simplify the process as long as you’re willing to wait a while for them to ship your book to Apply for you.
