Before Space Junque came out, I put up the first two chapters at Smashwords. It was great fun watching the downloads. When the entire book went up, I set the sample at 50 percent and unpublished the first two chapters.

Here is the mystery: People are still downloading the Chapter 1 and Chapter 2 files. WTF? Why? How?

Why fight Mother Nature? I revised the files and added links to the entire novella at the end, then republished them with proper labeling. Yesterday there were 8 more downloads of Chapter 1. Today, 4 already.

Huh? Half the book is free in the sample. I don’t get it…
