I post free downloadable PDFs of  many of my publications, including most of my full-length books. I believe that today’s reader seeks writing in different forms and that reading has taken on different shapes. By releasing books as PDFs in to the collective commons, writing can better engage with new, liquid, forms of reading and collaboration.

I believe that releasing my writing online for free encourages new and unexpected ways of people engaging and responding with the writing; it  will encourage experimentation and reaction. I encourage authors to scan your publications & release them online as a free PDFs.

So here you go, I’m giving it all away.
