The Day "Free Ebook Friday" Showed Up on Wednesday

The cool thing about being a writer is that I get to do really flaky things and then blame it on being a writer. Such as forgetting to brush my hair or occasionally running into a wall because I didn't see it. People who know a writer will chuckle and say, "That's okay that she just dropped our grandma's urn of ashes. She's a writer." You see, people expect us to be absent-minded.

Which is why last Friday, there was no post for Free Ebook Friday. I could have put it up. But I didn't.

Today, which I'm pretty sure is Wednesday, my ebook "Hair Gone Wild! Recipes & Remedies for Natural Tresses", is free. And I really need a Free Ebook Friday post so I can promote it. So let's just pretend in my distracted state of mind, I woke up and thought it was Friday right now.

Us nonfiction self-published authors need all the help we can get. There are about three of us. I'm not sure where the other two are right now, perhaps out searching for lost car keys or feeding their dogs frozen peas by mistake. But maybe they'll find this little corner of the blogosphere and feel compelled to list their free ebook day, too. Naturally, I'd love to have the fiction self-published writers put their free ebook days here as well. They really need our help.

  1. I actually just popped on to say I LOVED your free hair book! I downloaded it yesterday and now sit with freshly washed no 'poo hair... I'm very excited about using henna too, I'm prematurely grey/white (rapidly moving to fully white) and have been dying my hair since I was 15 (permanent..) so you can imagine the state of my hair. Sooo glad to be free of the chemicals, I'm gonna make this work!!
    Oh, and love the link thingee - my first novel is on the free list so this is fab opportunity :)

  2. Thanks so much, Nicole! I very much appreciate the compliment. I dyed my hair for a lot of years too, and I gotta say the henna is worth the effort. It really improves the health. I'll grab a copy of your ebook, too. Good luck and congratulations on your first novel!

  4. Diane. thank you so much for hosting these giveaways. It's hard enough to advertise our wares. Old Geezers the Gateway will be free on Saturday. Again, thank you.
