Two Out of Three Ain't Bad . . .

The free promotion of my novella, "A Fairy for Bin Laden," about a foot-high pixie who helps the CIA and Army hunt down Osama Bin Laden, has really taken off, with far more downloads than I expected in the first 24 hours, and has pushed the sales ranking for the piece from the 400-thousands (out of over one million) to around 2,000 (1,964 as of this posting.)

My goal was to gain exposure, build an audience in advance of the publication of my epic fantasy near the end of this year, and to spur sales of my other available novella.

As Meatloaf once sang, "Two Out of Three Ain't Bad."  So far, the free download has not translated to a bump in sales of the other work, but I am getting exposure, and reviews are starting to trickle in.

Help me by spreading the word to family, friends, and other readers of the genre; if I can crack the top 1000 with your help, and the top 100 in a genre ranking, I'll gain even more visibility, and this thing will really take off.

Sorry about the Meatloaf reference, in case that brings back any horrible memories.  For those of you who have no idea what I'm talking about, DO NOT search for that on YouTube--you'll be sorry.
