On May 10th of this year I started a Read-A-Thon to promote my books. I set it up through Facebook as an event and am happy to report it is moving along at a steady pace. As of today, my 5 combined books have garnered 925 reads in the past 54 days. That brings total reads to 6, 340 with my end goal of having 10,000 reads by the end of 2013.
Originally I was hoping that after a month or two several books would sell and over 100 people would join my event and continue to invite their friends. So far just one has sold, so at this point I cannot recommend this as a stellar marketing idea. However with months to go, things could always turn around.
You can join my Read-A-Thon on Facebook.com or visit Bookemon.com to read a book. For those of you who leave a comment on the Bookemon page of the book you read, I am eternally grateful. They say that reviews sell books!
