…my mate Paul is giving away Kindle copies of his second novel for free TODAY ONLY – I've not finished this one but the first one was a good read, if anyone fancies trying it the link is here http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B00ACIJOE8/ref=tsm_1_fb_lk  - and no, I'm not getting anything out of this other than watching my mate move up the Kindle download charts 🙂

Likewise.

 

It has 22 reviews and all of them five stars. Unless the author has bribed 22 friends that is  a good review list.big_laugh

His first novel was very enjoyable and also got very good reviews.  Some of those people may be friends of his - he does promote widely in his extensive social circle, but I doubt anyone posted anything that wasn't genuine - I was too lazy to post a review myself, but everyone I know who downloaded the novel (and that was quite a few) thoroughly enjoyed it.  Looking forward to starting this new one myself next week when I'm commuting.

Thanks guys - he made it into the Amazon top 100 free downloads yesterday which is really good publicity, and interestingly a whole load of people also paid to download his first novel as well as downloading the free one, so he's a very happy young author right now.  🙂  Please put reviews up on Amazon when you've finished it, I'm going to be good and do that myself this time.

I just bought the Kindle Fire HD, Lyn, (a great little thing) and will be delighted to try your friend's books. It's not free now but at only £1.99 it still seems like a bargain.

I haven't had time either - looking forward to a week's holiday at Easter and planning to read it then.
