Great show! The experiments you did with Bookbub & ads are wise. Huss is an inspiration.

I'm giving away The Camelot Kids: Part One and Part Two eBooks (plus two surprise eBooks) on my homepage.

If you know anyone who likes Fantasy (for all ages) then send 'em my way! They'll need to sign up for my newsletter, where I announce new releases and give away eBooks, stories and even a Kindle sometimes!

Love this episode! Mark's method really does work. You have to work hard, though. I spent a month getting things just right before I found one ad that performed well. A friend of mine (who I believe Mark was referring to in this video) can ramp up his spend and consistently get 100-200 sign ups per day. Will this kind of thing last on Facebook? No. But it's a good time to test it out.

Great show. I had no idea I could use Gmail for my newsletters. I need to check that out. Mailchimp drives me nuts.

Thanks for having me on the show! What a delight to sit with three fantastic authors and talk about writing, selling and dreaming.
