Getting an Audience

kindle (80K)
Kindle reading devices make reading simple.
One of the most amazing things to me is when I find that my stories are being read in other countries, sometimes hundreds of people in a week. Thanks to the convenience of the internet and Amazon's Kindle program, people can download them for free when I offer it. It's like getting free advertising but all over the world. For instance, over 100 copies of Killing Time were downloaded in the US yesterday, 15 in the UK, a few more in Germany, France, Spain and Italy. Yet here I live quietly in Maryland where most of my neighbors don't even know I write!

I think I like it this way.
