I have been listening to Scott Sigler's stories on his podcast for a few years now, and religiously bought his books when the finally came out in print. Yes... he provides the book for FREE as both a podcast and PDF, typically before it comes out in print.
On December 30th Scott's book Contagious was released in print, and Contagious hit the New York Times Best Seller list in its first week. Scott was the first author to provide his novels as a free serialized podcast, and is now the first author who is giving his content away for free to make the New York Times Best Seller List.
Congrats Scott, and as a long time JunkieTM I still shake when I don't get my weekly fix.
For anyone not already a Sigler junkie, visit hit site for a free hit. And if you want a recommendation, check out Infected, the prequel to Contagious. And if you like it try another, and another... then buy a book or two to help him pay the bills. As a junkie the payoff is the more books he sells, the more free content he can deliver. And I need more... please Scott... just one more hit? please...
