People Love Free Stuff

About a year ago, I started posting some of my short stories online for free.

Believe it or not, I get at least one download a day, which is surprising considering how much traffic this blog gets.  It's not surprising that people would download them -- people love free stuff.  If I had to guess, I would say that maybe 10% of those people ever actually read the stories.

Here's the free info Keepandshare.com lets me see:

Weight.mobi -- (47)
Mercurial.epub -- (57)
Gateway Drug.mobi -- (80)
unrequited.epub -- (110)
Grimm.epub -- (70) 
For those who might not be aware, .mobi are Kindle files.
It's not surprising to me that "Unrequited" is doing the best of all of the five that I can see, as it's probably the best story.  "Gateway Drug" probably owes a lot of its downloads to its title.  
If I had to hazard a guess, I would say that all the stories, in both formats, probably adds up to 800 downloads over a little more than a year.  Not bad for a writer no one has heard of.

Here's a list of the posts that will take you to my free stories:
