Free book generates income

I must admit that I sometimes doubt the business model of giving books away free and then later cashing in on them. Futuresimic has a post that shows that I might be wrong (for once). Jason Stoddard released two novels into the Creative Commons wild but was recently contacted by a small publisher (Prime books) wanting to publish the two novellas as one book.

Its great to see eamples of how letting something go can create later revenue to writers.
