Since I started tracking things in mid-2007, I can confidently say well over 1,000 people have downloaded the novel. Some of these fine readers were even pleased enough with my work to come back and purchase the rest of the series, but I'm truly flattered every time someone downloads the free one.
To glimpse the nature of my fantasy novel, here's the description from the cover of the paperback version:
Dreibrand Veta has killed for his country. At the frontlines of imperial expansion, he seeks to rebuild the fortune of his noble family. In his daring travels he encounters the rys, a race far more powerful than the human empire that bred him. Dreibrand cannot defy the rys Queen Onja nor defend his companion, Miranda, and her children from the wicked tyrant Queen. Desperate for help, Dreibrand and Miranda join Shan, a rys with emerging powers who plans to challenge Onja. In Shan’s pursuit of the rys throne, he exerts his magical powers, gathers his allies, and incites rebellion among Onja’s human subjects. Great wealth and power will reward the kings, warriors, and spies that align themselves with the rys pretender, but defeat could mean worse than death. Onja can imprison souls and her genocidal rage is legendary. Everything is at risk for Shan’s union of renegades.
For those readers who ain't interested in any newly fangled ebooks, you can get Union of Renegades for a mere $1 plus shipping. It's not quite free, but I'm definitely giving it away. What else is a poor fiction writer to do to get noticed?
