Bargain Days And The Power Of FREE

I thought putting SECTOR C on sale for 99 cents for a limited time (just like Spoil of War currently is) was going to be the big news for today.

Then I woke up to Amazon making one of the short stories from the Extinct Doesn't Mean Forever anthology available for free: "Connect" by Ken Burstall.

Its ranking when I first looked was #723 in all of Kindle (free) and it was #2 in Hi-Tech SF (free).

In less than 20 minutes, more than 100 additional copies had been downloaded and it was #619 and #1 respectively.

Congratulations, Ken!

Everyone else, go grab your FREE copy NOW!

It peaked at around #190 on the free kindle downloads chart - not bad at all.
On the kindle/free/sf chart it was beaten out for top placing by some dude called H.G.Wells. With a stuffy name like that he's going no-where ...
Many, many thanks to Phoenix especially, but also the other Extinct authors who promoted Connect.
To try and strike while the iron is hot I've uploaded three more stories to Amazon and Phoenix (going above and beyond as usual) is uploading them to Smashwords - see my blog for details.
