what a surprise, right? tellmewhatyouthink--a revolutionary idea!
but i have a question i've been kinda thinking about for a while. NaNoWriMo last fall got a free proof copy of a book from CreateSpace.com, an offer which expires June 1st.
however, i read a post by Kristen Nelson where she mentioned that having a barcode that doesn't show any sales can make it hard to find a publisher. my free proof copy would get a barcode assigned to my title, but i'm not going to be selling anything.
so what do you think? is anything really "free"? do you think the disadvantages might be greater than the benefit of having a book to share with my friends and family? or should i go for it?
p.s. i'm totally excited! Tahereh's contest ended last night, so we should find out the winners, uh, soon? and i'm curious to know what number she was thinking of....
