bestselling author freed

Hi,
My name is Mark T Sullivan. I'm the author of seven internationally bestselling and award-winning novels. I recently decided to take my backlist free, starting with my novel, The Purification Ceremony, which was published in 14 languages, a finalist for the Edgar Allen Poe Award and winner of the WH Smith Fresh Talent Award. Fellow mobileread member Asparrow calls the book one of the best values at Smashwords. com. The book is available in all digital formats at www.smashwords.com/books/view/4671, and through my website www.marktsullivan.com.
I hope you enjoy it!

Mark

Welcome to MR

It is always great when authors join and participate in our forums. I read The Purification Ceremony when it came out and ventured on to your other works.

Thank you for putting your book on Smashwords. We are an international forum of many devices and appreciate (and like to support) authors who take note of that.

Please join in the discussions and ask questions if you want to learn or would like clarification. There are many friendly, knowledgeable members who will jump in and answer (or point you in the right direction).

Hi Dreams,

Glad you enjoyed the Purification Ceremony when it came out. I actually think that free backlists (at least digitally) are the future, and I'm trying to embrace it!

It's a great idea. It reminds past readers of your name and your work plus it entices new readers to give an unknown-to-them author a try.

Dear Mark - will check out your book. When seeing the title for your posting, it sounded like some author had been let out of jail - LOL!

Backed. Free (and "shared") ebooks have led me to purchase books I never would have considered. They're a win for both readers and authors.

I'm going to give PC a read. Thanks, Mark!

Thanks for this Mark.

When I first saw that the protagonist was female I was not sure if it was my kind of book - how wrong I was - a great story excellently crafted, an exceedingly good read.

I will be reading more of your work.

Thanks Mark. I was searching for thrillers and code-breaking books and every site showed me only Dan Brown's books after some more searching, i saw your book triple cross and it had great reviews, so I decided to buy it on amazon (not embarrased to say that I bought a used version for $5 shipped). I have an ebook reader, but it was about $18-20 where I saw it first... (obviously I didn't find smashwords until now)
But now I will be downloading PC and I hope I have time to read it, though i've been very busy lately and I don't see that improving :sadwalk:

thanks for the opportunity to read the book

edit:
one comment is that smashwords website is extremely slow, it was almost painful

Awesome! Sounds fabulous; I have downloaded it. (I agree, Smashwords was very slow.) Thank you so much!
