I’m an author, and I’m a featured guest at an upcoming convention at the end of September. I’m timing the release of the 7th book in a series to coincide with the con, and I’d like to make the special offer such that those who are interested have books 1-6 by the time the end of September rolls around.
Accordingly, here’s my plan:
May: $3+ tier patrons get the first two ebooks in the series.
June: $3+ tier patrons get ebooks 3 and 4.
July: $3+ tier patrons get ebooks 5 and 6.
August: $10+ tier patrons get ebooks 1-6.
So this offers a bit of FoMo - each pair of books is only available for a month - and a way to make that up, by getting all 6 books in August. At the same time, patrons will have the first 6 books in the series, and can theoretically be caught up for the launch of book 7.
(My tiers usually give away ebook copies of completed books at the $3 level, paperbacks at $10, and hardcovers at $25.)
