So has there been some benefit to giving my work away on Amazon? That's an affirmative. Believe me when I say that when thousands have access to your work, there can be some pretty influential people paying attention. Hobbes and Reddy truly "get" the kind of writing I do, and that is refreshing to someone who has always had trouble finding publications that are the proper fit for my work. Also, I don't believe I ever would have crossed their paths if not for my decision make my work free in the place where the vast majority of folks with ereaders go for reading material.
Publishing is changing at light speed, and you're making yourself a part of a pretty incredible talent pool when you decide to go the indie route. While it can hurt the pride a little bit at first to see all that potential money go out the door, I think the long term dividends of free downloads are far greater. I look forward to letting you all know when the The Endlands vol 2 hits stores!
