I started the first iteration of the Free Kindle Books and Tips blog in 2009 when the Kindle was still brand-new and I was using a free WordPress site to let my friends and family know about the one or two free Kindle books Amazon would periodically make available each day. I never would have predicted back then how large this site would get and how big of an impact the site would have made on the independent publishing industry – or this would have lasted for almost 15 years.
My informal calculations indicate over 18 million free Kindle books have been downloaded over the years just from our posts and many of you have discovered and enjoyed the work of independent authors you never would have heard of otherwise – I certainly have! I can honestly say I have enjoyed sharing this with you and it has been fun: I’ve reached a lot of people and, based on various emails and comments received over the years it has touched a lot of people in a positive way.
However, as with all good things, it’s time to call it a day and retire. Thank you for allowing me to be a part of your lives over the years!
