This is something you didn't know about me--so few people do, actually. In my astrological chart, my sun is in the 5th house. That's the mark of a gambler. Not that I believe any of that ;-)
So I gambled that Bad Apple 1 would be served well by having a stint in the Kindle Select Program. Some people experience great success with it and the freebie giveaways. I can't say it did anything for The Apples and I am very glad to say Bad Apple 1 is live again at Barnes & Noble. This way people can read the series from the beginning as they should.
