My wife, as many of you know, writes really funny and fun fantasy novels under the name Kristine Grayson. She has been selling the novels to Soucebooks and they have been doing some great stuff with them.
Suddenly today Sourcebooks decided to give away for one week only on Kindle and Nook the Grayson book Kris wrote about publishing. It is wonderful fun and even has Sheldon McArthur the book dealer as a character. The book is called Wickedly Charming and came out in May, but for Kindle and Nook you can get it for free thanks to Sourcebooks for this one week.
On the publishing side of things, this will be an interesting experiment on using “loss leaders” to promote indie books. Our publishing company, WMG Publishing has up about ten Kristine Grayson books. If this push to make Wickedly Charming free for a week works and brings in new fans for Sourcebooks and the new Grayson book coming out of Sourcebooks called Utterly Charming, then it will also push the sales of WMG Publishing books.
So go get a free copy. And I will report back in time as the data comes in on the success of a loss leader on the other Grayson books.
