One of the new things I'm doing in 2017 is joining forces with other authors in boxed sets. One of them released yesterday.
For this boxed set, my publisher made the decision to put seven of us together. I was very excited about the idea because multiple authors means multiple fan bases to pool. It also means sharing promotional ideas and the work of promoting. When one of us (or in some cases more than one) lost power and/or wifi during the preorder, the others picked up the slack. We shared in multiple newsletters, Facebook groups, and on all our social media platforms.
I love having the support system of other authors who want the set to succeed as much as I do. Writing and publishing can be lonely at times, but I didn't feel alone at all with this release. As a group, we talked, shared ideas, and supported each other. The experience definitely makes me excited for the next boxed set I'll be part of with an Ashelyn Drake title. More about that coming in the next couple months. ;)
But the really cool thing about boxed sets is they don't just help authors. They are HUGE deals for readers. I mean 7 books for $.99! That's crazy, right? Readers can grab up several books for very little cost and potentially find new authors to love. It's a win all around if you ask me.
What's your opinion of boxed sets? Do you love them as a reader? Have you ever been part of one?
If you're interested in grabbing Gifted for only $.99, you can do so here.
