Today, March 13, 2014, you can download the Kindle version of my book, “Painting With Fire” for free until the stroke of midnight.
I must admit I have mixed feelings about the whole free thing. I wonder, will people see the value in something that’s free? After they’ve downloaded it, will they really read it? I have high hopes. I hope people will like the book. I hope they will review it. I hope they will tell others about it.
Art of any kind is meant to be shared. I like to think of my book as a little piece of art, maybe that’s presumptuous of me. I used to paint pictures when I was a kid. I gave it up around middle school when I realized I could paint better pictures with words. Here’s a chance for me to share my daydreams with others, to let them into the world of my imagination. Does it really matter if it’s without a monetary transaction?
Well, as nice as that is, I don’t want to be a starving artist. After years of hard work on my book, it would be nice to get paid. I guess the moral of the story is if you like the book, please review it and tell your friends, because that’s the real value in a free day, spreading the word.
