First Sale on the new marketing technique!

Posted on September 1, 2012 at 8:49pm 0 Comments

In trying to promote sales for my book series I've offered the first book in the series as a TOTALLY FREE DOWNLOAD for a limited time only. I hoped if they liked the first book they'd be willing to buy the next one. Well i got 6 more download reviews and my first sale within 8 hours of doing it this way. Now I know one sale really doesn't mean anything but I see it as a positive start to say the least. At the same time I'm blogging to everyone everywhere about it being a free download to…

Baby Steps!

Hi everyone. My full name is William O'Neil but I go by W.J. O'Neil more often than not. I'm a father to 5 and a grandfather to 9 (with yet another on the way!) I've been making up and telling stories to my kids for about 20 years now. About 5 yrs ago my wife (Mary) & the kids coaxed me (more like hounded) into putting one of them into print.

W.J., Welcome aboard, …from The Chuck!
               I write thrilling sci-fi novels filled with adventure, mystery, romance, drama, horror, comedy, and many more genres mixed in...  Sci-fi for everyone to enjoy. I'm also a published poet. When you have a moment, please check out my Authors page along with some of my many videos and blogs... Many of my Blogs include my free to read, short sci-fi fantasy stories for everyone to enjoy.

Yeah, I totally agree with you. There could be anything living in nasty swampy areas. My swamps generally contain strange aliens from faraway  planets, and sometimes I call my brain a swampy area.  

Let me know if you'd like to become friends.


The Chuck!
