PostSubject: Free through January 31 - Of Pain and Ecstasy   Wed Jan 04, 2017 10:00 pm

Hello friends,

Free through January 31, the eBook version of my small book of poems (Of Pain and Ecstasy) is available through Smashwords here: https://www.smashwords.com/books/view/181370. It also be available free of charge in a couple of days through B&N and iBooks. It is the least consequential of all my inconsequential books. But there is more of me in it (and in my fiction) than in all of my combined works. I'll do an expanded edition as soon as time allows (read, not any time soon but with some luck before I die). For now, it has the saving grace of being brief . . . and for this month also free. Smile 


By the way two Amazon Kindle giveaways are still ongoing for another couple of days until Amazon picks a winner. They are for my Mindscapes short story collection here: https://giveaway.amazon.com/p/8f537d6b81862aab and for my intellectual property book here: https://giveaway.amazon.com/p/d07a803485634cb0.

Thanks Alice. I like Smashwords because they allow me to give away books at will whenever I like either through making them free for a time or by creating coupon codes for discounts or for free books. But Smashwords does not have the reach of Amazon. I discovered the Amazon "giveaway" program just last week and have done three giveaways for my Mindscapes book (the latest just an hour ago or so) and also a giveaway for my intellectual property book. It may not increase sales but it is a small price to pay for a little wider exposure. Fortunately I have a good day job that keeps me busy and real royalties from textbooks, so the kindle book promotions are just a fun project that I use as a break from real work from time to time. And it is always fun to introduce our books to readers that would not otherwise be aware of their existence.

Thanks for the support. And I hope the poetry book won't be overpriced at "free" this month Smile .
