Price Match on Amazon Worked - Scraping the Bone is now FREE

As some of you may recall, late in August I decided I would like to try and have my short story collection SCRAPING THE BONE: TEN DARK TALES listed for free on Amazon.  To do this, I had to upload the novel free on other ebook sites that Amazon recognizes as a competitor and will price match (I guess Smashwords doesn't fall into this category anymore if what other writers told me is true).  After that, I started having my readers, website visitors, and Facebook friends start letting Amazon know the book was free by sharing the link of where it could be found in the 'tell us about a lower price' link that can be found in every book product description.  It took a while, a little over a month, but now I'm happy to report that SCRAPING THE BONE: TEN DARK TALES is free.  Whether or not this will help the sales of my other novels remains to be seen.  If so, I will be sure to let everyone know. In the meantime I hope everyone enjoys these twisted tales of terror.

By the way, it currently is only free on the US Amazon site.  Hopefully Amazon UK will follow soon.

Update: SCRAPING THE BONE: TEN DARK TALES is now free on both US and UK Amazon.
