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.
