And so it befinishes

The Kindle Select freebie for Flight 404 has now drawn to a close. It’s a little too early to say what, if any, impact it’s had–while hundreds of people have downloaded copies of the novella, it’s impossible to say what fraction of those has done so because, hey, free stuff, and what fraction is genuinely interested in reading the story. Obviously, there’s an ego-boost in seeing the download score tick over. But there’s also a ‘what now?’ feel, once it’s over. Wait and see, I guess. But I hope the downloaders like the story.

My experience is that there are a lot of people out there who like free stuff – but remember, the regular cost is about the price of a cup of coffee, if that. It’s been a good promo and with luck people will look for your other stuff, or if they just missed out will say,”What the heck, why not buy it?” And there may be some reviews there.

That’s the hope. And it has netted a couple of Amazon reviews in the last couple of days–fair reviews, which say useful things about the book. I’ll see how it goes from there.
