Free Books

Postby michellemoran » Thu August 28th, 2008, 8:36 pm

Mu publishing house - Crown Publishers - is offering a new program where bloggers can receive free books! The site is:

I just found out about it last night, and if I wasn't one of their authors, I'd sign myself up!

HA! Thanks Divia ;]

I'm thinking that if this program works, they'll keep adding more and more books to the list. I hope this isn't something they try and then stop in a few months. It would be nice to have a place where reviewers can go to get free historical fiction.

I'm especially eager to read Tethered! Although it's not his fic, it looks like it will be a really good book.

Michelle,

Do you know which book of yours they are giving away? The picture they show is of The Heretic Queen, but when I clicked on the email link, it has Nefertiti in the subject line.

I signed up, too. Thanks for letting us know about this program, Michelle. I expressed special interest in your novels and in the reissue of Rosalind Laker's The Golden Tulip - her novels have been hard to get, at least in the U.S.
Browse over 5000 historical novel listings (probably well over 5000 by now, but I haven't re-counted lately) and over 700 reviews at www.HistoricalNovels.info

That's the book I ordered. I already have your book on pre-order at Amazon and I can't wait!

How can any sane person knock back free books - thanks for the link Michelle!

I think it's great that they're offering the program. But it'd be nice to receive an auto-response when you sign up. I've signed up twice over the past 2 weeks, but I haven't heard anything. So I have no idea if my registration is active.
