Action / Mystery writer JA Konrath, author of the Jack Daniels series (Whiskey Sour etc) -- and of the blog A Newbie's Guide to Publishing -- is running a little experiment to try to save his beloved GPS unit "Sheila".
He's offering a PDF download of an original 75K word novel (a trunk novel he's refurbished, with Jack Daniels and her partner as bit players in someone else's story). The novel is called Shot of Tequila. And it's available for 99 cents by paypal.
