Another great tool for authors... and readers! #instafreebie #mgtab


I have recently found a new website called Instafreebie where an author can set up a book to be gifted to her readers and fans without actually having to make it free on Amazon, Kobo and the other venues.

I love this because it means that I can single out some of my friends and followers and give them a special treat with very little effort.

Or when I write a newsletter and want to give my subscribers a free read for being faithful, it’s very simple.

There are many times I’ve wanted to make this type of gesture but if the book is listed everywhere, it can be a battle trying to make sure it becomes free for the days you particularly want it to be. And if it’s everywhere, we all know you have to get Amazon to price match so it will be free on that venue. And… that isn’t easy nor is it a quick change. Sometimes Amazon can stall for days.

Recently, I’ve been involved in a lot of Giveaways and my subscriber lists have doubled and then doubled again. To be able to keep those friends opening my newsletters, it’s a good idea to have a gift for them. This is a perfect way to do that.

I also have a lot of “Followers”, “Friends” and “Likes” on my Twitter and Facebook pages and I think it’s a nice gesture to be able to tell them they’re in for a treat. Then put a book on Instafreebie and pass out the link.

There’s a bit of method to my madness - I’m always hoping that if they get one free book from me, just maybe they will like my writing enough to go looking to buy some of my other books. According to many of my reviews, the readers often say that this was the first book they read by Mimi Barbour but it certainly won’t be the last.

Now that is music to my ears. ¸¸.•*¨*•♫♪

And… it’s worth giving away a free read.

On the other hand – if you’re on the opposite end of the spectrum – A Reader – Oh great one!!!~sending love xoxox – then this is also a great place for you to go to find free books from some wonderful writers.


~So you can see how easy it is, I have set up Special Agent Francesca -
the first book in my popular Undercover FBI series 
as a gift for you today.
Check it out and see just how easy it is to access!!~
