I am always wary of giving my books away for free because, of course, I want
people to buy them.
But recently I received a handwritten note in the mail from an elderly cousin of
my father, who had heard about my book from someone in the family, and wanted
to know where she could buy one. She is eighty-eight years old and I didn’t know
if she uses the internet, so I broke my own rule and mailed her a copy as a
gift.
Today I received a message from her granddaughter who had seen the book, and
proceeded to order a copy for her Kindle and read it in one night. So the gift
led to a sale. Or maybe it’s an example of what goes around comes around, but
there are times when giving away a book is the cool thing to do.
