Is free literature the sly solution for gathering a following? If enough people like your work, will they pay to read more or will they always be out to get what they can for nothing? Would they be generous enough to recommend what they read to others?
Selling yourself short may mean that by giving your work away free, readers may think it is worth nothing...

I first need to thank you for reviewing some of my work on Smashwords. Your words of encourgement are truely what keeps me going. Your reviews are spot on and extremely helpful.
I, like you, are a frustrated writer. I just want someone to read and critique my work. I guess that is to much to ask of many. But like you I will continue to write. It is fullfilling in a way that is had to describe. I have only been writing for a year, but enjoy it greatly. As you can see my work ventures into many different styles, not all of them make sense to me. But i enjoy the simple act of putting words on paper or in this case, a computer.
Again thank you. Please stay in touch and continue to review and critique. My email is [email protected] and my website is jlschneiderbooks.com.

What is there about human nature that we need to be applauded for our efforts?
If we paint a picture, we need someone else to see it for it to exist. Magnificent prose is not worth the paper it's written on or the computer it's stored in, if there is no one to read it. I would be delighted if my stories were bought and made me rich but I would be happy to forego the money if my stories were liked and sought.
I have nevertheless come to the conclusion that I am a true writer as I have to continue writing despite the lack of fame or wealth. Inspiration is a propelling force which I am unable to resist. I will, however, continue publishing on sites that offer a free audience in the hope that someone will like what they read and want to read more...
