So I have a book coming out in late October or early November, so it's time to start thinking about how to prepare. I plan to give away the book electronically via my website, plus it'll be available as a Kindle book among other formats. When it hits the shelves, I plan to partake in a book tour or two, with readings and signings and more, and give away signed copies and so forth... but I'm unsure how much of this would actually be useful without knowing more. So: A poll!
How do you like to read books by a new author?
If you like an ebook *you paid for*, how often do you buy the print version?
If you like an ebook *you got free*, how often do you buy the print version?
If you download a free ebook or audiobook and like it, do you donate to the author?
If you donate for free ebook or audiobook downloads, how much do you give?
How cool is a custom, illustrated flash drive containing many e-formats of a book, plus art and other cool stuff?
Which of the following book-promo things interest you?
How do you discover and buy new books?
I wish to complain about this poll.
Last question for today: I'm planning a book tour! If you attend author readings and would like me to visit your town, where do you live?
