Shamless Plug
« on: February 27, 2012, 11:03:26 AM »
One of my nieces just released her first book. She\'s doing this Indie so she needed all the help she could get in promotion. I told her I\'d write her a review this weekend for a local website that\'s hooked-up with the local paper.

So if you\'d like to read about my weird family here\'s the review :)  :

That sounds interesting (and fun) Jan.

Do you know if she has approached Amazon to get it self-published for Kindle?

Could be worth her taking a look at ISELFPUB.COM if she hasn\'t already done so.

Actually, she has, Teepee, thanks so much for asking. The link to her book at Amazonlive online podcast. They\'re not my cup of tea, but I\'ll be listening. This will be her first interview and she\'s extremely nervous. Anyhoo, not too shabby for just a couple of weeks. :)

As for the book being fun, it is! It\'s a good mix of crime, mystery, vampires and comedy. Not too bad for her first one. You can really see her potential. I really have fallen in love with her main character. She\'s a wise-a*s but she\'s got heart (no pun intended :P )

Jan - just found it on Amazon.co.uk and downloaded it to my kindle. I will give it a review when I have read it - but that could be a little while as its currently ninth in line to be read.#-o

Give her my best good luck wishes.(tu)

Her book is free for Kindle on Amazon today for twenty-four hours and they have the free Kindle for PC app.

I wish I\'d know they were going to do that Teepee.  @\'.2\'@

Free books on Kindle?  Is this a special thing for Leap Year Day?  Are there many of them?  If so, how do you find out what\'s available?

It\'s of no import to me, as I don\'t read, but I imagine my impecunious daughter, who was given a Kindle for Christmas, would be interested.

They run specials all the time, Tickle. I\'m not sure who else\'s books are free today besides my niece\'s. You can probably do a search for free e-books.

I just found this page: Free Books for Kindle

There are some Free with Prime but there are also straight up free ones mixed in.

Thanks, Jan.  I did a search, but only came up with individual books.  I thought there might be a list, as it\'s a special day.  Anyway, she\'s probably too busy in the fields or working on her latest song.  And I suspect she probably only reads eco books.

Ah. Well, I do run into them periodically, so I\'ll keep my eye out for eco ones.


So she\'s a musician?

Plays violin - or used to - to about grade 8 standard.  More interested in strumming her guitar now and has taken to writing the odd song - some would say very odd.  Quite strong on lyrics - she started with a set you free song for her ex-boyfriend, described as \"my lovely, crazy, never lazy, workaholic Pole\" and has carried on from there.

Ha! Awesome! :)   I have a brother who is a songwriter. I admire folks who can write. It\'s a lot harder than it looks.

Yes, I know - I\'ve tried.

Is the song-writing brother father to the book-writing niece?

Never mind Jan - story of my life#-o    

As it cost me less than two quid I aint gonna scream!

For anybody else who is interested, there are always dozens of free books available for Kindle. If you go onto the Amazon Kindle forums there are  user posts relating to that days free books, usually under the thread \"Freebies dd/mm/yy\".

Did try to post the forum link here, but for some reason its cutting it in half:S
