    Hey Natania,

    I remember seeing one or two posts of yours about Tor’s experiment releasing free ebooks. I got a chance recently to talk to several Tor authors and asked them whether the ebook releases boosted sales. My article on the subject was posted over here:

    Anyway, I thought this was something you and your readers might find interesting.

    Take care,
    Simon
