Celebrating MY Independence Day

About half a year ago, I removed all my books from general circulation and gave them ALL to the KDP Select program on Amazon.

After careful consideration (and looking at my sales figures), it's not doing any good. If anything, sales are down, people are returning books to put me in the hole, and those who've taken the numerous free books continue to fail to write reviews. Without reviews, books are not noticed. Reviews don't have to be long and involved. Just a star rating and a couple of sentences saying why you loved, liked, or hated the book.

So, July is celebrating my independence from Amazon's strict rules on KDP. I want to make my books free for more than five days per quarter. Maybe I want to have coupons (which I can do through Smashwords) as direct rewards to individuals. Can't do that in KDP Select either. I'm using up every last free day on my books in the month of July. Here are the links and the Calendar of Freebies.
