I'd love to know about others' experiences selling/giving-away their writing.
I met a full time novelist by being the first to review one of his books. He told me this:
...maybe a dozen people read XXXXXX after a year's worth of marketing effort trying to give the book away for free.
re: Audiobook – After 6 months of effort, paying actors for their services, I think I managed to sell (1) audiobook. Nope, not going there again.
