It's not like this is a new thing, but I'm currently in the process of plotting a shorter Hellfire Club story, set just before Masque, in Paris during the revolution. This one, however, will be free. Marketing strategy? Yes, but I also think it's a good idea.
I like free! Who doesn't?
This will allow readers to sample my work in a complete story and then decide if I'm worth the price. I certainly hope the answer is yes, but I understand everyone is different and likes different things. It really is in the hands of the reader!
I'll post the second it's available for download!
