Like Crack (My Nefarious Plan)

This is my plan *BUWAHAHAHAHAHAHA*. It's my theory that a serial's success is dependent on how addictive it is. So I am taking a little time to study successful drug dealers.

You think I'm kidding?

Well, okay, mostly I'm kidding. Except not really. Because it makes sense.

And see, once you READ this ill make sense *shifty*
FIRST, I offer up a sampling for free... a BIG sample. It has to be enough to hook somebody, after all... So I plan on offering this puppy (only it's not really a puppy—it's a 100-page book) to ANYBODY WHO WANTS IT.

Got that? You want to read it? It's FREE! Now Kindle won't let me ALWAYS have it free—they are stinkers that way. But they WILL let me have some free DAYS, so for each successive book, I will give the first away, but I am going farther... I am just offering it up to alla y'all here... you want it? Just tell me. And as soon as it's ready, I will send it to you.

I am starting a LIST—so just gimme your email --my email link here works if you'd rather send it privately than posting  (unless you know I have it already—then just shout).

I will ALSO ask you to officially download it on that first free day, just so it goes into my numbers (and so if you want to review, you are a 'verified' reader... And I WOULD appreciate reviews on it... But I am not requiring it. I just wanna HOOK YOU! *cough*

See how glamorous you'll be!
The NEXT drug dealer lesson is then not letting it be too long between doses, or you will get through withdrawal and may not NEED the next one. So Book 2 will be just 2 weeks after book 1... And then Book 3 just 3 weeks after that. I am hoping by that point to have you all good and addicted and then I can set you up in a brothel... wait. No, wrong story.


Reserve the date! September 5 is MINE—a wee blog fest if you don't mind... I will put the details up on Wednesday.

Natalie Aguirre said...

Sounds like you've got lots of good things planned.

It's so crazy, it just might work!

Karen Baldwin said...

LOve your analogy, and the illustration. The link to give you my email didn't work. Can you resend? I would love a free copy.

L. Diane Wolfe said...

Hook them and reel them in, Hart. I will save the date for you.

Johanna Garth said...

You're a novelist drug dealer, pimping words instead of substance! Love it!!

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Will naked drug dealers be involved?
Saving the date!

Sounds like you have a good plan.

Okay, I'm ready to be hooked!

So easy, I am!

You know, sex sells, only problem I wasn't selling sex that day! :)

If I'd figured it out sooner I'd have sold the book, but I'm a little slow on the uptake! something my husband, and my partner that day, found oh so amusing!

Michael Di Gesu said...

COUNT me in... You have my email...


Helena said...

I will shout and scream and do my happy dance on September 5. And you have my email, Hart, so sign me up.

What a great idea Hart! Fiendish in its simplicity.

Some series are addictive, for sure. I've been addicted to some, when I was younger; the Hardy Boys, some Western series, and more recently, the Stockholm Noir series by Jens Lapidus (unfortunately the latter is just a trilogy)
