So, last week’s promotion was the first time I’d tried a free promotion. Here are the results:


????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????I gave away 914 copies, including books in two markets I’d never “sold” to before–Italy and Japan. Now, if only a quarter of those continue on to buy THE VOICE OF PROPHECY, BEYOND THE PROPHECY, and (eventually) WAR OF MAGIC, that will have been well worth it.

And THE SHAMAN’S CURSE will be free for five days starting tomorrow.


Free can make sense for the first book in a series.

So, if you’ve never read anything of mine, now’s the time.
