What I want to know is if there is any particular promotion that might tickle your fancy enough to buy a book? I don't care if you buy it for your Kindle or Nook or other reading device, or a paper book.
In today's world so many people are writing books because it is no longer necessary to go through the agent/publisher process to get a book published. For no dollars you can publish on Kindle or Smashwords. If you have a good book, you can find a small press who will publish you in paper and electronically for not outlay of cash.
So what tickles your fancy enough to make you buy a book?
Is it the cover? The blurb on the back of the cover? What you've read about it on the Internet? Reviews? What people are saying about it?
Have you ever bought a book because of what you read on a blog? Or followed an author on a blog tour promoting a book?
What about Facebook, has that ever influenced you to buy a book? Or any other social media?
Today we're told over and over if you want someone to buy your book you have to tell him/her about it. A reader won't find you unless you're promoting yourself everywhere possible.
What I want to know is if you've bought a book because of any of these things? I'd like to know I'm not wasting my time with all the promotion that I do.
Answer whatever questions appeal to you. I'd sure like to know where to concentrate my efforts and what to forget about.
