Amazon made my mystery collection, Waiter There's a Clue In My Soup!, free this morning. I have sold almost 5000 copies already, and it's the top free short story for Kindle. It's number eight of all free Kindle titles. (I beat Dostoyevsky! I beat Charles Dickens!)
Since Amazon separates free and paid titles -- and places them side by side on the same page -- it's really cool to see it sitting there on the Kindle best sellers page right next to James Patterson and Janet Evanovich. (And Scrabble!)
I'm not getting paid for this, but freebies tend to boost sales over all. And this has sold in less than a day more copies than my previously free books sold combined, in a whole month.
I'm going to out for a celebratory dinner. I wanna see even better numbers when I get home.
