Free YA ebook (novella) Haunting The Night, and smart book promotion

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?

About Cheryl Rainfield

I write the books I needed and couldn't find as a teen. I write teen fiction--paranormal fantasy and gritty realistic fiction. I'm the author of SCARS (WestSide Books, 2010) #1 ALA QuickPicks, and Governor General Literary Award Finalist, HUNTED (WestSide Books, Oct 2011), STAINED (Harcourt, 2013), The Last Dragon (HIP Books, Sept 2009), and Walking Both Sides (HIP Books, 2011). I also enjoy drawing, surfing the web, connecting with people I like, doing crafts, and being with my dog.
