THE POWER OF FREE: I mentioned earlier that the InstaWife had mixed feelings about seeing her out-of-print book for sale used on Amazon at $99.95. Rather than revising it for a second edition (she’s already working on another book anyway) she’s just put it up on her website for free downloads in PDF format, along with a couple of donation buttons. It’ll be interesting to see how this works out.
She ought to make more money from the donations than she’s making now from the book (not hard, since the used sales net her zilch), and the people who are constantly emailing her to ask where they can get copies will now have a place to go. The only losers are the people selling used copies for $99.95. Sorry, guys!
