Why do I release my books for free

 

Yep. That's one of the questions I get asked all the time. It's rather unusual behavior for an author to release his books absolutely free, isn't it?

 

Well, here's why:

 

It's NOT all about the money! As the popular saying goes “The best thing in life are free” and so it is. Can you put a price tag on “friendship” or “love”? How much does “freedom” cost? It would be cruel if children weren't able to enjoy my books because their parents could not afford to buy them, and children's authors should not be cruel. They should be the opposite of cruel, actually – gentle, caring and loving. The values we write about should not be just words on paper. We should be the living and breathing examples of those values, because what we write HAS to be true. Every good author will tell you that you cannot lie to your readers (or little listeners). They will catch you in a second. When you read a book, you can actually feel if the author is being honest about his or her inner self.

 

Well, what if some people have enough money, but still read my books and never pay anything? So what? Maybe they didn't enjoy them that much. Should we ask them to pay if they are not actually satisfied? I know we live in a capitalist society, but that is kind of greedy. And children's authors should not be greedy. Did I already mention we should stand for the stuff we write about?

 

I DO believe that people are inherently good. If you have poured your heart into something, if you have tried your best, people will feel that and give you their unconditional support. There is no need to hide your work: people are not thieves! If you share, they will care, they will follow you, they will nag you about when your next book comes out, and yes, they will gladly support you because they will know that their children's favorite author is actually writing about the values he believes in. The same things they believe in – friendship, love and freedom!
