If you haven’t already, head over to BookTrack and check out ‘Unforgiving’. BookTrack is a free service that adds sound effects, music and ambient noise to a story. It gives it a very movie-like feel (I wrote some about it for Nerds Feather).
The reason I bring it up is because ‘Unforgiving’ has moved to #3 on the ‘most popular’ list over there, but still has just under 500 reads. One of the things I have seen is that very nearly everyone who has read my work enjoys it- even if they don’t usually like SciFi or short stories. As many of you know, one of the biggest obstacles in writing is getting people to find and read you- even $5 on an unproven commodity can be a hard sell. I think BookTrack, as a free service, can be a great way of turning it into a proven commodity. If thousands of people have read something, and it has a high rating, it means it’s probably pretty good, right?
So, in order to get more eyes (and, in this case, ears) on it, I’m going to run a social promo for it. All you have to do is read it, and then share it on the social media channel(s) of your choice. Once ‘Unforgiving‘ hits 1,500 reads, I’ll pick five random people* to receive a 3024AD swag pack (stickers, zipper pull, pin and, ya know, the book).
So there you have it- read a free story, win free stuff! As always, thank you and enjoy!
