The journey of a million miles…

I uploaded a free short story at smashwords. http://www.smashwords.com/books/view/135064 as a sample of Elf Tales and Other Psychotic Events which I’ll be putting up in a couple of weeks.
From what I hear this is the kind of advertising that can work. Of course, just about anything CAN work, whether it not it will, that’s anyone’s guess.
The idea is to make your work available, and then if people like it they’ll buy–actually paying money–for your other work.
I’ll let you know if it works. I can say for myself, I’ve downloaded a number of free books at smashwords, and bought only a few. But then, I’m kind of cheap. (That, of course, is my motivation for writing better-I want to produce something worth paying money for.)
Check it out, if you like it be sure to rate it.

  1. Update: In 24 hours the book was downloaded 46 times. (This doesn’t include the copy I downloaded.) This shows the power of “free”. Also the story was reviewed once and given five stars.
    Pardon me while I glow for a little bit.
