Cities of the Dead: Stories from the Zombie Apocalypse is now free.
For the time being, that is.
Since I have no marketing budget, and since giving away free copies of the individual shorts isn't stampeding zombie lit fans my way, I've decided to give the entire enchilada away as a promotional tool. And then, when my book has hit a certain amount of downloads, return to the marketplace with a price attached.
It's been two years since I put the first story out there, and since then about 45,000 copies of either the shorts or anthology have been downloaded for free or purchased (mostly free downloads of the individual shorts, but a not-insignificant amount of sales, too). That's not bad, but there are something like 9 billion people on the planet, and I want to get to as many of them as possible, and October 2013 seems like the right time to try and get noticed.
I do want to make a living off my fiction, after all, and to do that I need to let people know I write fiction, and if giving away the milk gets enough people to notice the cow, well, then I might be in the steak business soon enough...
It's available in all eBook formats, but I'll provide a few links here:
