Free, Baby!

by Julie Frayn on January 20, 2015 in  Writing

MazieBaby-brighter2400x1600-100Well, Mazie Baby has made three Best of 2014 lists (Indiereader.com, Suspense Magazine, and Readfree.ly). The cherry on top of that trifecta sundae? She is in the running for an IndieReader Discovery Award.

Starting today, for five days, I’m trying something new. I’ve put Mazie Baby up for free. Yes, you read that right. FREE. No cashola. Who ever said there ain’t no such thing as a free lunch? Well, maybe that’s true. But there is such a thing as a free ebook!

The catch? Only on kindle, folks…

Suspense Magazine Wax Seal 2014Because it’s my inaugural freebie, I went all out. I’ve got promo out the ying-yang. Today you’ll find her on Choosy Bookworm, FK Books & Tips, and the site of the wonderful Carmen DeSousa, Great Books Great Deals. You’ll find Mazie splattered all over the online book sites this week, culminating in the biggie on Thursday – BookBub. Yup, I secured the elusive BookBub slot.

Hoping for good results, a slew of reviews in the aftermath, and downstream sales to boot.

If you have a kindle – go grab Mazie Baby now! Please?

December 24, 2014

This is particularly satisfying because I didn’t enter her myself. A reader and reviewer found the book compelling enough to make […]

My mom has long been a coffee lover. She was filled with disdain and anger when, due to heart issues (as in, three heart attacks in one afternoon ten years ago, a 98% blockage removed by her heart doctor, Dr. Goodheart – I shit you not) she had to switch to the dreaded decaf she […]

Discovered! By IndieReader.com

September 20, 2014

A while back, I entered by Mazie Baby in the Indie Reader Discovery Awards (IRDA). Entered her in some other awards too. Then I went about my life and promptly forgot about it. Part of the IRDA (a part they have now stopped – cheers to good timing!) is that each entry gets a detailed […]

Read and Review Program Success via Choosy Bookworm

September 13, 2014

The premise, conjured up by Jackie Weger, founder of enovelauthors, and Jay Lee (aka Kevin), the guy behind Choosy Bookworm, is simple. And perhaps a touch of genius. It works like this: […]

Adventures in Alzheimer’s – Chinese gunman edition

September 12, 2014

We had a freak September snow storm this week. Freak with a capital F. Tree limbs were snapping off left and right, the poor trees not accustomed to thick, wet, heavy snow weighing down still-green leaves that were in as much shock as we were. Cue the eerie knock at the door just after 6 […]
