faceless Free Until Saturday (for Kindle)

I know, I know. This is (once again) a post NOT about learning Chinese. But it was too cool not to post. I’ll just let my own words from the other website talk for me:

“The Kindle thing I’m enrolled in allows me to give the Kindle edition of my novel away for up to 5 days every quarter (not the paperback version, sadly). So as soon as I figured out how to do it (yesterday), I decided to fire it up!

So if you, or anyone you know, has a Kindle and wants a free book, please pass the word along. Thanks!”

Ok. Now that I’ve done two book news posts in a row, I promise starting today I’ll begin thinking about intending to consider the possibility of getting some of those draft posts about ACTUAL Chinese language learning ready for blog publication.

    Gah, get a personal blog already. This doesn’t even say it’s your novel, how am I supposed to keep track of this stuff? I wouldn’t have known if I didn’t click.

    Strangely enough, amazon.co.uk lets me download it…

    I just finished “Faceless” the other day on my Kindle after downloading it while it was free. I really enjoyed it, especially how you worked lots of “real” things about Chinese society and culture into the storyline. I think I read it in about two hours (both of my kids slept at the same time, and I devoured it) so it was pretty engaging.:) And then the next day while surfing online, I saw a report on “Google Glass” and got shivers up my spine. The hologlasses are REAL!!! ACK!

    @Harland,

    Sorry if the free Kindle book was an unpleasant surprise. It won’t happen very often.

    @Kevin,

    Weird. Don’t know what to tel you except: go through Amazon.co.uk!

    @Jessica,

    Glad you liked it. 2 hours has GOT to be a record. And sorry to be eerily prescient.

    Hah, re: being “eerily prescient” – it was more the timing of my reading the news articles and your book that was weirding me out.:) It does make me think a lot more about my online/social media “presence” though, and about what data is being mined. Actually, your story draws attention to some aspects of social media that most people don’t think about…but does so in a fun way. :)
