The final hours

This week I placed Pike's Quest on the FREE list at Amazon (UK, US, DE, FR, ES, IT) for  a five day period: it is now inside it's last 24 hours. The deal expires at mid-night Saturday PST, or around 8 AM GMT Sunday.

You still have the chance to grab Pike's Quest for free.

Why have I done this? I want as many people as possible to read it. Like most writers, I crave a readership. What's the point of writing if the only person who reads it is me? I'm certainly not making the big bucks out of it, but maybe some small ones will follow, once I have an audience.

So, follow the links HERE, download my Kindle  book, and maybe check back in a  few months to buy the sequel, or anything else I put onto Kindle. You may also like to get your personalised cover.

Virtual Book Signings

Want a signed copy of Pike’s Quest or K J’s Shorts, but can’t get it ‘cos it’s on Kindle? Just go to Kindlegraph, sign in with a Twitter ID (while you’re at it, you can follow me on Twitter - @kj_bennett), and search for my books by name. Then send me a request.

Update your Kindle account to accept e-mails from Kindlegraph (the site provides you with the actual address), and you will get a personalised cover, message and autograph from me - it’s a free service, but Amazon may charge a small delivery fee if you connect via their 3G Whispernet network.

Pike's Quest for free!!!

It’s here: the Pike’s Quest give-away!

Starting on 21 February 2012 - 08:00 hrs GMT, (00.01 PST), Pike’s Quest will be available for free download for Kindle from Amazon on these links - 

UK - USA - ES - DE - FR - IT

The times are approximate, as I am at the mercy of the Amazon servers

Pike’s Quest has received several 5-star reviews on Amazon UK and US and on Goodreads: this is your chance to get it for free. Why am I doing this? To get readers: I am writing the sequel and would love to have more readers for the first book before I release it. I have a zero advertising budget, so this may be the best way to find them.

Spread the word. Tell your friends, tell your enemies. Grab it now (well, when it starts, at least).

My Shorts rule!

Well, my weekend of giving away K J's Shorts was quite a success. In league table terms, the good old USA came out tops, with nearly three times the downloads of the UK (proof that things are bigger an better over there?)

I just hope the British sense of humour is fully understood by my American readership, or I may have shot myself in the foot.

Oddly, I had one download in Spain and one in Italy. Ex-pats?

The Amazon terms prevent me from saying how many in total were downloaded, but let's say I am quite happy with the result.

Now, how happy will the readers be? Will anyone post a review on Amazon?
