The Man from Shenandoah is a Big Hit!

In fewer than 24 hours, 70 people have downloaded a free copy of The Man from Shenandoah in various ebook formats from Actually, one person paid for the book. I don't know if it was a mistake or a genuine desire to give me money.

Thanks to the power of Twitter and Facebook, and with a little boost from email, I am on my way to having 1,000 True Fans.

No, I'm not making money with my Halloween Weekend Special promotion--except for the three-odd dollars I'll receive from the person who paid for The Man from Shenandoah--but I expect to hook people on my novels, and that's the end goal.

Incidently, while I've been writing this, I've "sold" two more books. There is a market for ebooks, and for Westerns.

In case you missed the Special, here's a reminder:

  1. That's so exciting, Marsha! Now I see your plan. Free book today means paying customer tomorrow!

  2. Wonderful news, Marsha. Keep up the good work!

  3. You've caught the vision, Valerie. I'm not the first author to do this, and I won't be the last, but I hope to entice readers to put my books on their must-read list.

    Thank you, Cathy! I'm working on an ebook for Ride to Raton.

  4. that's fantastic! Good for you for doing that! I sure hope it boosts things for you!

    Love this idea, Marsha. And thank you for the "free book". Like many other readers I want to have the books on my bookshelves anyway. At one time I had all of Louis A. and Zane G books among others such as James Patterson, Sue Grafton and many more.
