Free Fiction: Marked Men

MarkedMen600x800 If you love something, set it free. Well, okay, maybe this isn’t quite what the saying had in mind, but I was so blown away to crack the top thousand ebooks on Amazon (out of millions) when I gave away my SF novella ASUNDER that I’m doing it again.

Right now you can grab a free kindle copy of my short story MARKED MEN, my second pro sale to the DAW anthology ‘Slipstreams’… about cowboys & demons. Want to say thanks? Tell everyone you can! Click on the links below to share in social media.

WALK THE FIRE, Episode 13

A madcap escape through the Flames, an unexpected pursuer, and love in the face of tragic history. Aborted Love, with Chaos Motor, Part 1 of 2, by Matthew Sanborn Smith. A story from the Walk The Fire anthology (Kindle).

CrowdFunding & Best-Selling!

Busy week here in the empire of Serving Worlds! I’ve been planning my IndieGoGo campaign to crowdfund ENEMY LINES in print & ebook for a while now. It launched this past week. I’m off to a good start, but I need your help! Please check out the campaign & contribute.

One of my plans to generate buzz for the campaign? A free kindle ebook. I waited the campaign on this, & I’m glad I did. Harlan’s Wake Hit #50 on the SF Best Sellers ‘Free 100′! That felt good…but I guarantee it won’t by my last time on the list!   Happy Holidays, all!

Don’t tell Amazon! …okay, go ahead, tell’em!

Today begins a marketing experiment with ebooks and Kindle. I’m testing the sensitivity of Amazon and hoping it’s high enough to catch me at my own game…and fall into my evil trap!
Translation: I’m giving away HARLAN’S WAKE for free on Smashwords or iBooks…not so much on Kindle.

See, Amazon doesn’t let folks give their books away. But if you give your books away elsewhere, and they catch you at it, they drop your book to $0 automatically. So, I’m hoping you’ll read the story of the Harlan clan and the alien Silvers. If you like it? Tell others, leave a review or pick up another story.

Of course, if you want it for free on Amazon, you can always narc on me on Amazon. Please. Go ahead. The link’s about halfway down the page, right above customer reviews.
