What better way to avoid writing than to choose the title for the next book. I have already commissioned the cover design but had a little doubt about the exact title so decided to ask the members of my newsletter email list.
I set up a survey using Survey Monkey in the same way that I did to decide the cover of my first novel and I will do the same for the cover of the second novel once it is ready.
I had been building up my email newsletter by offering my first novel free to anyone who signed up and did get some initial success from Facebook ads.
However, once the cost per lead of the Facebook ads got too high, I turned them off and focussed instead on Bookfunnel promotions. This is when writers get together to offer their books in a joint promotion. I offer my book for free but readers must give me their email address to download it.
I’m taking part in one of these promotions at the moment called Attitude of Gratitude in which many books are available free to download.
