People Love Free S–t!

So, The Year We Finally Solved Everything is now free at Amazon for… I don’t know how long.

I made it free at Smashwords about a month ago, hoping something like this might happen, but then after a week I figured that this was silly and put the price back up to it’s usual and exorbitant $1.99.   Last week I noticed that it was free for the Nook, and then today I saw this…

I’m not sure how long this will last, but I’m not complaining.  I always thought of The Year We Finally Solved Everything as a little book that is near and dear to my heart, but wasn’t destined to sell much or make much.  Well, now it’s not making anything, but it’s selling a lot.  Like, hundreds of copies an hour.   I’m pleased, to say that least.

So, hell, if you’re an author whose written a little book that you don’t care about making money off of, try making it free at Smashwords (assuming it’s been approved for premium distribution) and see what happens.
