What makes a book an irresistible purchase? Why do you press that online Buy button?
Authors spend a lot of time and money on book promotion. We’re always searching for new and better ways to reach readers. Lately, I’ve been using the Goldilocks Method to tinker with the prices of my titles on Amazon and Barnes & Noble to see what works.
What is the Goldilocks Method, you ask? It’s the name I coined for testing whether or not a book price is too much, too little, or just right. I also pay close attention to the tagline and excerpt, hoping to find the most appealing blend. Cover art is extremely important, but authors have no control over covers issued by publishers. We do get to choose covers for re-releases, though, like the cover I created for my revised and expanded paranormal erotic romance novella TEMPTED.
Why do you choose to buy a particular book? Is it a combination of the factors I mentioned or something more? What makes you press that Buy Now button?
TEMPTED by Adele Dubois
Emily never dreamed that getting hooked on interactive television would lead to so much trouble…
Is sexual fantasy cheating? If so, Emily’s got a problem. Though she’s never been unfaithful to her husband in reality, she’s found a new hobby with 3D Mental Image Projection. In the privacy of her home, she indulges her secret desires on interactive TV. What else is a lonely woman of a certain age to do?
When Emily wins a weekend getaway to mystical Isle de Paradises, she swears she won’t stray. But temptation lures her at every turn. Desirable men want her and beautiful women pursue her. When Paradises’ youth-restoring powers crumble her resistance, Emily is faced with an irrevocable choice. Her decision will forever alter her life and the fate of her marriage.
