Two questions on putting books on the web

The links in this post are all now broken. I unpublished these books a long time ago, even though the series was completed, as I wasn’t happy with their quality. The domain name has since lapsed and is now owned by somebody else.

Original post follows


I’ve put together a web version of Knights and Necromancers 1: Days of wild obedience.

You can have a look at it here. Read the entire thing online.

I decided to keep it simple, no javascript, just focus on making readable, linkable web pages.

So, I have two questions for you:

  1. What do you think about the design?
  1. What do you think about offering full versions of ebooks for free on the web while charging for the EPUB/Kindle versions?

I’m debating whether to put full versions of later entries in the series on the website (using the above-linked design) while still charging for the ebook versions of the stories on Amazon, iBookstores, and Kobo. I know of a few examples where that has worked and a few where it hasn’t, so I’m curious what people think.
