I give away the odd free book in the hope of intruding readers to my work. Most readers won’t realise this and, yes it is hard work over a long period.
Well said Claire!
Seriously would you ask a plumber to do some work in your house and not pay them, would you tell a cashier their goods aren’t worth paying for. Then don’t ask an author for a FREE Book. Seriously, that is just lame.
Do you know how much time and money goes into producing a book for you to read? I doubt it somehow.
The first part is of course is finding your muse and writing your first draft. A draft can be anything from 500 words to 200,000 plus, after all it is their story to tell. So think about the hours it take to write that many words. Then you have the re-drafting x about 20 or more RE-WRITES until their story makes sense, flows well etc. this could take 6 month or a year, if not longer. It depends on the genre, and research done.
