Every week I publish this Friday post so that you have access to new free or cheap reading material. But have any of you ever contemplated why authors offer their books for free or ridiculously reduced prices? There are several reasons. The number one reason is to connect with old and new readers. If a long time reader takes advantage of the deal, then it’s a way for the author to thank them for their support. If a new reader takes advantage of the deal, then it’s a way for the author to “pre-pay” them, in a way, for their future support. The free books allow people to sample an author before they make a more expensive purchase like an omnibus set. Any way that you look at it, free and reduced books are a gift from the author to you. With that said, if you do take advantage of the deal, you should thank the author by leaving him or her an honest and polite review on the site where you took advantage of the deal. Those reviews mean a lot to the authors. It helps them not only gain future sales of books, but it also helps them gain publishing contracts.
