The Hall of the Wood: free fiction

One year and two days ago as I write this, I first offered my fantasy novel, The Hall of the Wood, as a shareware download on my web site. The 'experiment', as I called it, has, I think, been a success. Over 2200 downloads, numerous comments (mostly positive), a (very small) amount of money received in payments. OK, not a smashing success, but a worthwhile endeavor nonetheless.

I was going back and looking at The Hall of the Wood and I realized something: it lacks presentation. I basically threw out the same copy I was sending to agents and publishers. They want a certain font and double-spaced lines and other stuff, whereas a reader probably wants to see something a bit more presentable and, most important of all, readable.

As of now, wonder or wait no longer, for I have re-packaged The Hall of the Wood into a most presentable work of fiction. Some minor changes here and there, but mostly just new fonts, cleaned up the headers and footers, slapped a new cover page on there, and some other tweaks. The end result is a more presentable product.

If you haven't downloaded The Hall of the Wood yet, feel free to do so now. I've dispensed with most of the requests for donations at this point. It's out there, for free, so download at your leisure. I always appreciate comments, good or bad.
