The YA ebook Haunting the Night, which is a novella in the Past Midnight series, by Mara Purnhagen, is free right now on Amazon for Kindles. I think this is such *smart* book promotion, and something a lot of authors and book publishers should be thinking about–offering a short story or a novella for free to give readers a taste of the author’s style and the books’ series. I’ve seen this happening more and more, and it’s something I plan to do once Scars is available in ebook form.
What do you think? Do you pick up free short stories and novellas from authors that tie into their books for sale?
