Dear OC readers,

About a week ago, I posted here about my Publishing Experiment Take 1. I spoke of the need for authors (Yes, Authors!) to make experiments in new media and publishing. Well, now’s the time to put my fiction where my mouth is. Today I’m launching my collection of short stories, A Long Way from Disney, on Amazon’s Kindle platform at the price of $.99.

Direct link to buy A Long Way from Disney on Amazon.

Please visit SethHarwood.com/kindle for more info. You can buy the book if you have 1) A Kindle 2) an iPhone/iPod Touch or 3) Any PC computer!

Easy! See you soon with more free stories and results from this experiment.

PS: If you’d like to hear more free stories like this, you can check out new posts today at CrimeWAV.com and SethHarwood.com. You can also get the stories directly from iTunes.

Seth Harwood podcasts his ideas on the publishing industry and his fiction for free at sethharwood.com. He will be teaching an online course (The Essential Art: Making Movies in Your Reader’s Mind) with Stanford Continuing Studies starting in January. His first novel, JACK WAKES UP, is in stores now.

    hope you get some eye-popping numbers. :)

    i bought my copy and told everyone i know to take a peek.

    glad to know the packaging of kindle files is pretty easy (i used to make my own .lit files from project gutenberg texts and that process was frightfully easy — i usually would spend the most time trying to find a suitable cover image…heh.)

    maybe you could post about the process of preparing your book for being put on the various ebook marketplaces?

    Sounds good, Kurt. I’m happy to post about that later on this week!
    I’m also planning to write up what I’m learning from this experiment.
    Great stuff! Thanks for supporting!

    Book is currently 379 on Kindle books list overall at 6:30 PM PST. Still seems to be climbing. Long haul, I guess! I’ve been at it off and on (mostly on) since 8AM today.
