Nan Hawthorne is giving away free e-book copies of her novel An Involuntary King to readers outside North America. Here is what she says:
"I recently checked the price that Amazon.co.uk charges for my novel, An Involuntary King: A Tale of Anglo Saxon England. I was appalled. Of course, it's a combination of the fact that the book costs too much anyway and that postage to ship from my printer to your green and sceptered-isle is likewise.
So I am making this offer to those to live in the land where my novel takes place, namely England. If you purchase the ebook version on Smashwords, I will give you a coupon for 100% off the cover price there. That is, I am giving you the book.
You will need to contact me to get the coupon code first. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
You can check out the book's page on Smashwords for more information on the book itself.
To qualify you just have to tell me the name of the town and county you live in and the name of your favorite king or queen of England. That part is just to humour me.
Don't dilly dally... there's an expiration date for the coupon. It's not for a while, but still..."
So there you go - to get a free e-book copy of Nan's book, all you have to do is email her on email@example.com, with the name of your town and county and the name of your favourite king or queen of England, and Nan will send you a coupon code.
I checked with Nan, and the offer is open to anyone outside North America.
