I've decided to go Permafree (permanently free) with Open Minds. Why? As you may recall, Open Minds was free for about six weeks earlier in the year. Some of Amazon's rules have changed with regards to free books (i.e. placement is less prominent, they limit free downloads through advertisers like Pixel of Ink), so for a while, the future of free seemed uncertain. But my experiments in pricing with the Mindjack series have clearly shown one thing: with Open Minds free, I have many more sales of the other books in the series, more readers overall, and make more total money for the series.
In other words, free works. (Still.)
As I move forward with Debt Collector and other works on the horizon, and as a long-term strategy for my body of work, the idea of having a free work always available appeals to me. Especially one that's been road-tested like Open Minds:
155 Five Star reviews on Amazon
274 Five Star reviews on Goodreads
Professionally edited and covered, Open Minds has readers young and old, male and female, science fiction lovers and people who never read science fiction, who tell me they enjoy it.
4,600+ people still have Open Minds on their TBR list on Goodreads.
I want to make it easier for them to download and start the series. And easy for readers who have already enjoyed Open Minds to share it with their friends. My hope is they will come back for more of my works, once they get a taste of something they like!
