Tee Morris and Philippa Ballantine are astonishing authors, amazing podcasters and entertaining marketers. They have an entire world built around the release of their next books, The Case of the Pitcher’s Pendant by Tee, and Digital Magic by Philippa. Make sure you are on Amazon.com on 08.08.08 to order these books, and make history!
As part of thier promotional campaign, they are BOTH releasing these books as free PDF downloads, the entire novel, not the first few chapters, not a synopsis, but the entire novels. For free. Right now.
You may ask youself, why are these authors giving away thier books for free? It doesn’t make sense. Well, very little that Tee does actually makes sense, but it this case, it’s perfectly reasonable. More and more authors are discovering the benefit of allowing readers to sample thier wares before making a purchase. Even Neil Gaiman saw an increase in his sales after releasing a free digital version of his novel American Gods. Publishing is changing. These authors, along with people like Cory Doctorow, Scott Sigler and others, are helping to bring the industry into the digital age. And that is the true magic.
