How about putting together an omnibus with other indies working in a similar area? You could charge actual money for it, to avoid the problems of freebies, but make it very good value, to get most of the benefits, and you'd get some cross-promotion. Fans of the other writers would get to see your work, and vice versa.
A friend and I have been trying to put together a group to do short stories. Each story would be framed by a little one-page bio of the author and where to find more of their work.
The problem is, the book almost has to be free. Partly to bring in readers, but also because divvying up the sales of a 99 cent book 13 ways is a nightmare.
