$2.99 $0.99 TODAY ONLY
I don't often put my books on sale (they're priced low to begin with), and when I do, it's usually because of a special event, like an ad. Today, Open Minds is Book of the Day on Ereader News Today, an ad I purchased back in January! Hopefully the ad will expose Open Minds to a new pool of readers.
If you've been waiting to scoop up Open Minds, now's the time!
Or you could give it as a gift!
Or, even better, email the sale newsletter to a friend!

There are lots of debates about pricing, and I think indie authors need to experiment for themselves to see what works for their book and their genre. For me, I've experimented a bit with pricing, and the $2.99 for my introductory book to the series seems to work well - I actually have more readers AND more revenue at that price point (because the more readers compensates for the lower price). The second book in the series is less price sensitive, probably because readers have generally read the first book already, so there is less "unknown author" factor in the price.
The idea of having more readers is important to the longer term health of your author career, not just the short term performance of any given novel. Hopefully, you plan to have many books in your portfolio for readers to choose from in the future - but those readers have to know about you first.
I'm hopeful a lot of new readers will discover the series during today's ad. Wish me luck!
