Why And How Self-Published Authors Offer Free Books

This Friday's recommendation is an episode from the website that I find most useful on writing and publishing, The Creative Penn. (The double-n comes from host Joanna Penn's last name.) Joanna interviews Damon Courtney, the founder of BookFunnel.com. BookFunnel is one way authors can offer a free book for various purposes, such as providing review copies or giving readers a free book to sign up for an email list. He and Joanna also discuss the rise of indie publishing.

Joanna generally spends the first part of each show updating listeners on her publishing journey and commenting on tweets and emails. If you want to skip to the interview, click this link, hit play, and move to 19:30.

Have a good weekend! Stop back on Sunday for a new post.

P.S. Joanna always includes bullet points from and a transcript of the interview on the page with the episode, so scroll down if you'd rather read it or prefer to skim the content before listening.
