Submission + - Self-Publishing Authors Resort to Giving Away Book (

UCFFool writes: "With the publishing industry backlash toward self-publishers, many are choosing to put out their works for free to generate buzz and momentum. The new zombie novella, "My Zombie Body", is part of a 24-hour giveaway today, in an effort to draw in readers and generate future sales for the book and for Child's Play Charity. Other authors are submitting their works as a free download directly on Amazon and other online booksellers."
