One of the risks (if only to ego) of placing work in the Creative Commons is that it never really reaches the Commons. Whether your book is free or has a price tag on it, people still have to know it exists in order to read it. And regardless of pricing, the best way for readers to find a new book by an unknown author is still word-of-mouth. I can make sure my books are free and widely available, but I need you to help others find them.
So...if you read A CIRCLE OF IRON -- love it, hate it, or something in between -- please consider taking the time to write a quick review or comment and posting it to Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Goodreads or wherever else you find books. Blog about it, Tweet it, Like it and help me spread the word (or warn your friends away, as the case may be). I really do appreciate your help.
