There’s plenty of talk about whether giving away books can translate into paperbook sales. Cory Doctorow is a believer. I made the case here a few weeks back on Ebook Sunday. Michele Albert is putting her money where her mouth is. Albert is a multi-published author under the names Jerrot and Albert. Absolute Trouble is a book that was edited and published by Avon in 1998. Publisher’s Weekly said the following of Albert’s debut effort
Jerrott’s theme of redemption brings heart to this finely crafted plot, but what this novice writer does best is create memorable characters and, in an unusual coup, she manages to reveal her protagonists’ layers during sizzling sex scenes.
There are 32 Amazon reviews of this book and it has an average score of 4.5 stars. This book features the infamous stripper hero. If you aren’t a fan, haven’t read her, wonder what all the fuss is about, take a chance. Download her book and see if it doesn’t make you want to buy her March release.
For Ms. Albert, I hope this works out for you. I know I’ll be buying Tough Enough when it comes out.
