Freebie Day on UMG!

Well, I've discussed it with my supervisor, we're going to have a free ebook day on UMG Productions' website. It's going to begin at 7 AM on Sept. 20, and end at 7 PM. This is Pacific standard time. I've been thinking about this for some time. I wanted to offer some things for free. Now, this does not include everything. Some books will not be offered for free. My supervisor only wants to allow a select few for free. But those that will be free are going to have this big, red button on their entry for one day:

When the sale is on, all a patron has to do is click this button, and they will be able to download the full version of the ebook. This sale is only going on for one single day. After 7PM that day, everything will be back to normal. There will be exceptions. No books with adult content will be available for free. Nor will any non-fiction books. My supervisor put her foot down on that. Because it is likely kids will be getting into the site that day and downloading. So, we don't want kids to get their hands on any adult material. Also, this only applies to ebooks. This does not apply to printed books. Those will still be available, but they will cost the customer. Later on, if I can get my supervisor to agree, we will offer those at a reduced price, but we cannot offer them for free. It costs us money to print them. But this free ebook day is great for a start.

Hopefully, this will encourage people to comment on these books, thus advertise. We will see. I am also going to post this on Google groups if I can. That is IF Google Groups is still going on!

In other news, I got a scanner, but I am still trying to figure out how to use the dang thing!! So far, the results I've gotten from it are unfavorable! It scans awful SLOW!! And I usually scan in 400 dpi, this scanner does not have that setting. It has a setting of 300 dpi which you can't see anything on, and then jumps right up to 600 dpi, which is fricken SLOW!! Takes 2 minutes to scan one picture on 600 dpi's. I did the Dynamic Dogs today, which is only 8 pictures. But some of the bigger stories will take all day to scan until I can figure something out! I'm pretty good at this BS. I think I can figure out something.
