Freebie Promo Post-Mortem

On Tuesday, April 24, I did something I had yet to do: I put two of my books up for free on Amazon.  As Book Three in the Kings of Ghumai series was finally released, I figured it was time to see if I could find an audience for them.  While my 99 cent promos…

Looking Back at July
