After quite a successful promotion yesterday which saw In Strange Company rise in the top 23% within the ranks of 2 million plus books on Kindle store, I have decided to promote this work another way. I’ve dropped the price by a dollar, so now it’s $3.99 from $4.99 (USD). That’s perhaps a little less than the average cup of coffee these days.
No, don’t close the window yet because you are thinking this is a promotion thing… it’s a bit more than that. Perhaps, after you read this, you may want to get a copy if you haven’t already, or reblog it, and pass it into your own circles of bloggers, friends and other networks.
I don’t know if I’ve mentioned this before, but I am very interested in making movies, writing stories that count, that can make you think, or perhaps bring a tear to your eyes. Having previously co-written and directed a feature film and thoroughly enjoying every moment of it, I’ve had my heart set on making a movie about women’s activism, voice and the basic right over information that can empower and help in self-protection. It’s been an issue that has always been on my mind, and I would like to develop the idea I have and see it become a movie that starts conversations around the world, especially countries where such things are swept under the carpet.
…but without much funding, I don’t know how far I can get. Not very far, I imagine. Hence the reason I’m promoting In Strange Company. As silly as this sounds, I’m hoping to try to raise funds to be able pursue the idea further, do a bit more research and hopefully one day see the movie to completion.
Hence, I just wanted to let you know that the book is a little cheaper than it has been thus far, and I do have a few other ‘free’ promotion days planned in the future. I would love it if the word was passed around to either raise awareness of the book or the upcoming promos.
Anyway, thank you for reading my words again.
